Freightliner Trucks on Monday, Dec. 15, announced the availability of Roadranger Fuel Efficient (FE) 75w-90 Synthetic Axle Lubricant as a factory-installed option on its Cascadia, Coronado, Columbia and Century Class S/T trucks.
According to the truck maker, independent research has confirmed that the addition of Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant may result in reductions of fuel consumption by more than one percent; results may vary and require proper use and application.
In addition to its cost-saving benefits, Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant is designed to extend vehicle life by improving operation in extremely low and high temperatures and by providing better protection against gear wear in high-horsepower, high-torque, high-speed, heavy-load and severe applications.
“Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant not only generates significant cost savings, but also enhances overall performance,” says Melissa Clausen, director of product marketing for Portland, Ore.-based Freightliner Trucks. “We are always seeking new solutions that impact our customers’ bottom lines.”
Additional features of the lubricant, according to the truck maker, include its resistance to oxidation at high operating and peak drivetrain temperatures, and its advance seal-conditioning base additives, which help maintain and extend the life of seals. The lubricant also is formulated to be noncorrosive to copper and other yellow metals often found in drivetrain systems.
Roadranger Synthetic Axle Lubricants are manufactured by Cognis Corp. For more information, call or visit a Freightliner Trucks dealership or go to www.freightlinertrucks.com.
