With more than 70 years of history serving the motoring public in Australia, Caltex has proven itself a worthy partner for drivers of all kinds
Caltex has been a dependable partner for generations across Australia, with the brand ready and committed to support customers, partners and suppliers in a whole new way.
Backed by Chevron – one of the world’s leading energy companies with more than 70 years of history in Australia – Caltex offers its customers high-quality fuels, engine oils, lubricants and more, including the new fully adaptable StarCard fleet management system.
Supporting this, Caltex is currently strengthening its distribution network, ensuring the prompt supply of products, to keep the country moving.
Following Chevron’s acquisition of Puma Energy (Australia) Holdings three years ago, which included a national network of retail locations, they’re now embarking on a rebranding project which will see most Puma Energy sites change to Caltex by the end of the year.
Beyond the retail experience, Caltex offers innovative industry-leading technology, such as the specially formulated fuel system-cleaning ingredient Techron®, which is available in every fuel grade – helping your car’s engine deliver maximised power, better fuel economy, better acceleration, a smother drive, and reliable performance.
On the lubricants side, diesel engines will experience Caltex Delo® ISOSYN Technology, the brand’s high-performance diesel engine oil offering, while Havoline® will be available for petrol engines.
By offering a comprehensive fuel and lubricant offering, Caltex is a one-stop-shop, with solutions available for every kind of application, from construction to mining, agricultural, power generation, transport, and global marine.
Top-tier lubricants and fuel that keep you moving
Protecting your investment in plant equipment with high-quality lubricants simply makes sense.
Caltex Delo® with ISOSYN® Technology, helps protect vital diesel engine parts, provide engine durability and extend service intervals, to help minimise operating costs.
Drawing on over 88 years of expertise, ISOSYN® Technology combines premium base oils with high-performance additives to deliver engine component protection rivalling synthetics.
This high-performance additive formulation helps provide exceptional soot dispersion and prevent deposit build-up, ensuring vehicle performance which can contribute to extended service intervals and minimised downtime.
The road to the modern-day Delo® range is one based on marketplace innovation.
In 1935, Chevron, then known as Standard Oil of California, partnered with Caterpillar Tractor (CAT) to formulate an oil to lubricate the high-speed diesel engines that CAT was planning to build.
This joint venture between the two companies resulted in a multipurpose motor oil known as Delo®, an acronym for Diesel Engine Lubricating Oil. In the 1940s, Delo® was the first brand in the world to develop compound diesel engine oil that could be used in any diesel engine, and in the 1950s, it pioneered the first successful multi-grade engine oil, with innovations over the following decades setting industry benchmarks for long-term engine performance.
Adding further confidence, Chevron has the capabilities to manufacture lubricants by producing its own base oil, maintains 21 individual blending plants, globally (including joint ventures) and owns Oronite, one of the world’s biggest additive companies.
Delo products are sold in 155 countries, and importantly, Chevron internally controls the three pieces required to manufacture lubricants, by producing its own base oil, it controls Oronite, one of the world’s biggest additive companies, while it also maintains 21 individual blending plants globally, including joint ventures.
Today, Delo® products are sold in 155 countries and the Caltex Delo® product family includes lubricants, coolants, greases, and construction equipment system consumables such as engine oils, hydraulic system oil, transmission oils, engine antifreeze/coolants, gear drive fluid, grease for bearings and other lubrication points and more.
Similarly, this offering extends to all other fleet vehicles, including trucks, trailers, and passenger vehicles, with the Havoline® brand of oils covering the full spectrum of petrol engines.
Caltex with Techron® is available across all petrol fuel grades and contains an innovative formulation that has been scientifically proven to help clean and protect engines. Techron® not only removes dirt, but also helps prevent deposits from forming on critical parts of your car’s engine. This helps your car’s engine to function at optimum, delivering maximum power to your wheels.
Caltex Diesel with Techron D helps keep fuel injectors clean, protect against corrosion and reduce foaming while filling up.
In diesel engines, the fuel injector nozzle can be as narrow as the width of two human hairs, and with these injectors usually located inside the combustion chamber, they are exposed to extreme heat, and are, therefore, more vulnerable to deposit formation than those experienced in a petrol engine.
StarCard streamlines business operations
The new Caltex StarCard is a power-packed fuel management card offering a convenient way to increase fleet management efficiency. It provides a wide range of adaptable features to manage fleet and personal expenses and is perfectly suited to the ever-changing requirements of working in the construction industry.
It has two main options, either ‘open’ or ‘close’ loop. Open loop provides the ultimate coverage allowing access to all Caltex and Puma Energy service stations, and being welcome wherever WEX Motorpass cards are accepted, meaning you can use it at over 6,000 service stations and industry partners Australia-wide. Open Loop StarCards can also be used wherever Cabcharge is accepted and for services at Magic Hand Carwashes.
A closed loop card means businesses can avoid paying transaction fees while enjoying access to the full range of Caltex with Techron® fuels. Both options can be set up for specific drivers and vehicles, with PIN protection available too.
Additionally, StarCard provides a range of perks and discounts from leading tyre retailers, vehicle parts and accessory retailers, vehicle servicing providers and accommodation houses.
StarCard is another solution offered by Caltex to keep businesses in control and allow operations to run smoothly.
