An Indian haulage company has a fleet of about 120 trucks, most of them made by Tata Motors. The company was using an API CF-4 lubricant that gave an oil-drain interval of 18,000 km but was looking for improvement.
Shell explained the benefits of using Shell Rimula R4 l5W-40 and suggested that the company should trial the lubricant. Shell also offered the Shell LubeAnalyst oil condition monitoring service and Shell Lube Video Check, a fibre-optic tool that enables operators to inspect key internal engine components.
As a result of using Shell Rimula R4 l5W-40, the trucks’ oil-drain interval increased from 1 8,000 to 36,000 km, which gave the company a total reported annual saving ₹ 1,80,109 for 18 vehicles.
