To help educate trucking fleet managers and owner-operators about how synthetic lubricants may help enhance the performance and reliability of their vehicles, as well as potentially deliver fuel economy benefits, ExxonMobil has introduced a new six-page color brochure for its flagship Mobil Delvac synthetic commercial vehicle lubricants.
The Mobil Delvac lineup of the fully synthetic heavy-duty lubricants includes Mobil Delvac Synthetic Transmission Fluid, Mobil Delvac Synthetic Gear Oil, Mobil Delvac Synthetic ATF and Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40. Available in print or online here, the brochure details how using high-quality synthetic lubricants, such as Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40, may help fleet managers and owner-operators extend drain intervals, enhance soot handling and minimize wear, leading to lower maintenance costs and downtime.
In addition, the brochure provides key data, with accompanying graphics and detailed charts, that show how Mobil Delvac’s full range of synthetic oils have performed in the most challenging OEM and industry-standard benchmark tests, such as Sequence IIIG Oxidation Test, CEC L60-1 Thermal Oxidation Test and Cummins ISB Wear Test. According to ExxonMobil, test results show that Mobil Delvac 1 ESP, Mobil Delvac Synthetic Gear Oils and Mobil Delvac Synthetic Transmission Fluids, when used in combination, can help trucking fleets and/or owner-operators generate up to 3 percent fuel savings compared to conventional mineral lubricants.
“As the trucking industry continues to become more competitive, and the technology used in today’s vehicles continues to become more advanced, fleet managers and owner-operators are increasingly looking at ways to lower their costs by maximizing the performance of their vehicles and enhancing fuel economy,” says Yeong Kwon, commercial vehicle lubricants product offer adviser for Fairfax, Va.-based ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Co. “With our full lineup of Mobil Delvac-branded high-performance synthetic lubricants, we continue to extend our legacy of being at the forefront of lubricant technology, providing the marketplace with a range of products that deliver outstanding oxidation resistance, wear protection and viscosity stability, as well as improved fuel economy.”
