FUEL ECONOMY LUBRICANTS FOR TRANSPORT INDUSTRY, BUSES AND TRUCKS

How does TOTAL RUBIA TIR FE engine oil improve fuel consumption?

Fuel represents around 30% of total truck operation costs, thus even small reductions in fuel consumption can significantly improve the bottom line of heavy-duty fleet operators.

There are several initiatives to capture fuel economy (FE) gains. One of them is engine oil design, which can enhance FE performance via viscosity control and friction reduction. Lowering the lubricant’s viscosity reduces the overall friction in the engine, and is a key enabler to deliver fuel efficiency gains.

What is fuel economy retention?

FE retention is the oil’s ability to retain its FE properties or credits over the oil drain interval. The TOTAL RUBIA TIR FE range is specially formulated to have better control of oxidation, volatility and soot-induced viscosity growth, thus allowing viscosity to be maintained over the oil’s lifetime and retaining FE credits. This means that fuel savings are optimized when a TOTAL RUBIA TIR FE oil is used.

EURO 5 and 6 engines : Fuel economy retention as tested for optimum fuel savings

A series of tests performed on EURO 5 and 6 heavy-duty diesel engines1 show that TOTAL RUBIA TIR FE engine oils2 maintained their viscosities throughout the oil drain interval, ensuring optimum FE credits from star to end.

EURO 4 engines : close to 3% fuel economy3 as tested

Tested on actual fleet operating in real-world conditions, TOTAL RUBIA TIR FE engine oils offer close to 3% FE3 for EURO 4 engines.
