A large logistics company in India operates a fleet of haulage and passenger transport vehicles. It has nearly 4,000 trucks manufactured by Ashok Leyland and over 5OO Volvo coaches. The company wanted to increase its vehicles’ oil-drain intervals beyond 108,000 km for engine oil and 150,000 km for axle oil, so asked Shell for advice.
The Shell technical team recommended that the company should trial Shell Rimula R6 IME 5W-30 heavy-duty engine oil to increase the engine oil-drain interval and to help improve fuel economy. Shell also recommended Shell Spirax S6 AXME 75W-90 axle oil. A trial was conducted on two Volvo buses to assess the oils’ performance in durability and fuel economy.
