Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90: Formulated to help achieve fuel economy improvements

Offers potential fuel economy

In addition to fully synthetic Mobil engine oils, high performance Mobil transmission
and rear axle oils, greases and specialty products for commercial vehicles can help
deliver further advantages to fleet operators – including fuel economy benefits.

Through innovative drivetrain designs, today’s manual transmission and rear axle
technology has vastly improved the performance capabilities of heavy-duty trucks
in terms of load, torque, speed and control. These designs have increased the requirements
of lubricants to deliver higher levels of performance, increased productivity and
reduced operating costs. For heavy-duty final drives, friction control, wear protection,
thermal stability, shear stability, rust and corrosion prevention and seal protection
are lubrication features that must be optimally balanced. This enables an oil to
provide long gear and seal life, smooth operation, improved fuel economy and high-load,
high-torque capability over a wide range of applications.

In response to these advancements, ExxonMobil has developed Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90,
a fully synthetic, supreme performance commercial vehicle gear lubricant to deliver
outstanding performance and reduce lubricants related operating costs in heavy duty
drivetrains.


Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90 – tested to show fuel economy benefits

For a fuel economy evaluation, the test on Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90 was conducted using
a 440 HP Volvo FH13, a 6×2 tractor loaded to 38 tonnes with i-Shift transmission.

The drive cycle was derived from long-term data-logging of long-haul, heavy-duty
truck operations in Europe and the testing was conducted on track at MIRA in the
UK.

Mobilube 1 SHC 75W-90 was used in the transmission and rear axle and compared against
a mineral 80W-90 oil in the transmission and mineral 85W-140 oil in the rear axle

A fuel economy benefit of up to 1.2% was measured when comparing the synthetic product
to these mineral oil based products. Fuel economy improvements are dependent on
vehicle/equipment type, outside temperature, driving conditions and your current
fluid viscosities.

Ask for synthetic driveline oils

With fully synthetic drivetrain lubricants having the potential to enable companies
to run their vehicles more fuel efficiently and for longer, operators who currently
outsource their maintenance and servicing, should ‘ask for synthetics’ the next
time their vehicles are taken into the workshop.
