Navistar recently joined the automotive and diesel sponsorship teams. The sponsorship teams now consist of ten auto companies and four diesel equipment manufacturers. The sponsors make major decisions for the programs, which includes creating and enforcing the performance standards, executing audit plans, and reviewing additive formulations. Navistar's perspective will bring great insight to both the TOP TIER™ Diesel Fuel and TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline program.
