Transport

Across rail, haulage, bus and coach companies, the pressure is on to improve engine efficiency and reduce fuel costs and choosing the right lubricant can help

Fleet and commercial transport businesses are under increasing pressure to do more with less and by maintaining vehicle engines with the right lubricant, it is possible to reduce unplanned downtime, improve productivity and ultimately reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).

However, when it comes to keeping your fleet moving, lubricants are often overlooked. One of the key barriers to choosing the right lubricant is a lack of training and understanding about the specific lubrication needs for different engines. Different original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have defined minimum requirements for lubricants and greases but not all products will meet these standards.

Case Study - Transport Company A

For Transport Company A, any interruption to business-as-usual would have a costly knock-on effect when it comes to making deliveries on time so they have invested in an on-site workshop to ensure its fleet is frequently attended to and an annual replacement policy that means the average age of its 100 Iveco Stralis artic vehicles is just three years old.

A build up of oil deposits from engine oil had been causing a pattern of premature turbocharger failures so after consulting Certas Energy, technical advisors identified that Shell's Rimula formulation offered the best, future proofed fit for its Euro V engines. Transport Company A achieved £40-45k worth of savings per year on parts alone and field trials extended to similar products within the Rimula range to ascertain further savings that could be made on its new Euro VI engines.

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.
