PUTTING FUEL ECONOMY TO THE TEST OVER 2 MILLION KM

WITH DIESEL PRICES RISING RELENTLESSLY, FUEL ECONOMY IS ALWAYS A TOP PRIORITY FOR OUR CUSTOMERS – SO TO DEMONSTRATE THE SAVINGS CASTROL VECTON FUEL SAVER CAN OFFER, WE CREATED A RIGOROUS TEST USING A FLORAL TRANSPORTATION FLEET IN THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES…

 

“Over the 2.3 million km trial, castrol VECTON fuel saver demonstrated fuel savings of up to 4%† across the fleet”

 

  • 10 vehicles fitted with Cummins ISX engines were used to test the potential fuel saving benefits of Castrol VECTON Fuel Saver vs. a base test oil
  • The standard oil drain interval for the fleet was 40,000 KM
  • Over the entire trial the 10 test trucks completed approximately 2.3 million KM
  • All the vehicles were fitted with a system designed and developed by Castrol using telematics technology to record various data sets to allow fuel consumption to be calculated accurately across the drain period
  • The fuel economy data was verified by an independent statistician
  • The data obtained from the test showed that Castrol VECTON Fuel Saver can offer fuel savings of up to 4%†.
