Chevron Marine Lubricants’ Taro® Ultra is a regulation-ready range of new-generation cylinder oils, providing the reassurance of a global lubrication solution for virtually every fuel eventuality while lowering your fleet’s total cost of ownership.


Lubrication is the lifeblood of your engine, and at Chevron Marine Lubricants we have years of experience developing high performance lubrication oils and support services to keep your vessels running smoothly. But with vital decisions to make around the IMO fuel sulphur cap, due to come into force in January 2020, lubrication is the last thing shipowners want to think about.


We have formulated Taro Ultra to provide regulation-ready, tailor made solutions covering every compliant fuel requirement, delivering our customers peace of mind whichever operational route they choose, wherever in the world they are.
