NEW YORK — The engine oil of the Walmart Supercenter is supposed at least to have a bit of fog protection, according to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
A review of the oil by Bloomberg Energy Finance of more than 100 Walmart Supercenters in the U.S. found that engines of the popular department stores in the region had been tested for anti-puffing properties.
The testing results showed that Walmart Super Center-branded engines did not have any noticeable anti-turbulence properties, the report said.
Walmart Supercenter engines, which have been tested by a company called Engine Oil, are used to power the stores, according the company.
The report said that Walmart’s engines were also tested for corrosion resistance and were found to be corrosion-resistant.
As a result, the company is likely to be paying more attention to the anti-pollution properties of Walmart SuperCenter engine oil.
Last year, Walmart’s engine oil tests revealed that the company’s oil was at least as good as other popular engine oils on the market, according Bloomberg New Technology.
“The results for Walmart SuperCenters have been extremely consistent,” according to the report.
“The Supercenter engine oil has proven to have no detectable anti-flutter properties, but is more corrosion-resistance than other oils on its market.”
Walmart is also testing engines of other brands in its supply chain for anti flutter properties.
In 2016, Walmart tested a wide variety of engines of several brands, including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen.
However, Walmart Super centers in Michigan and Louisiana did not receive the same anti-flow tests as Supercenter-branded vehicles tested in other states, the Bloomberg report said.
“Walmart also uses an auto-oil-extraction technology called Auto-Oxidative Extraction, or AXL, which uses enzymes to break down organic materials into their natural form, thereby reducing the oil’s odors and increasing its quality.
An EPA-approved AXL testing protocol requires that engines have an “acceptable odor” rating of 0.6 percent and a “high purity” rating for “no odor.”
Walter Reed Health System’s engine-oil testing lab in Rockville, Md., said the Supercenter oil is not subject to EPA-registered standards for engine-oxygen test and anti-microbial testing.
According to Walmart, the Supercenter engines have the following anti-fluid properties:Anti-Flutter: 0.7% (0.1% if sprayed with engine oil)Anti-Fog: 2.5% (2.5 if sprayed without engine oil or diesel)Anti Puffing: 4.6% (4.6 if sprayed)Flat-Coated: 2% (3 if sprayed, and 3 if sprayed and without diesel)In addition, the engine oil does not contain a significant amount of carbon, and has less than 0.1 percent organic acids.
