Case Study - Transport Company B
Operating throughout Britain and Europe, Transport Company B has provided professional coach hire for over 50 years. With its fleet of 19 vehicles on the road for an of average 6 days a week, covering an average annual distance of 24,188km per vehicle, the coach company needs to be confident that its vehicles and engines are in top condition and operating as efficiently as possible.
Transport Company B had previously been using mineral-based oils for their engines and basic mineral-based gear and axle oils. The Race Group, part of Certas Energy recommended the use of Castrol’s Vecton Long Drain 10W-40 oil for the fleet’s engines and fully synthetic Castrol Syntrax Longlife 75w/90 on the axles. By converting their engine, gearbox and rear axle lubricants to fully synthetic, high performance Castrol products, Transport Company B was able to save 6 litres of fuel per day per vehicle which added up to a total saving of £38,000 off their annual fuel bill a year.
