Over the road trucking is a very competitive industry. Sometimes just a small increase in fuel economy will make the difference at year end between a profit or a loss. Trucks are quite an expensive investment therefore it is very important for reliability, and for your bottom line, that they keep running for as long as possible. 

Regular maintenance is essential for all of the trucks components. The drive train of the modern heavy truck is a masterpiece of engineering. I owned some trucks that were built back in the 1960s and my truck engines put out 250-280 horse power. The drivers needed to be very careful of overheating the engines when ever they were climbing hills. Today the same size engine can put out over 500 horse power and run much cooler. The trucks of today are much more economical than in the past as well.

The technology that provides better power, cooling and economy make lubricants work harder. Some of the innovations such as oil cooled pistons and oil coolers require oil to pass through small holes to provide cooling. The oil carries away the heat. It is important to keep the engine clean from sludge build up as a plugged oil passage could cause an expensive disaster. 

Most of the successful trucking operators are constantly looking for better ways to improve efficiency. When new trucks are purchased fuel efficiency, longevity and increasing the payload are all considered. A small gain can mean a great deal when applied to an entire fleet.

AMSOIL offers an entire line of products to maximize your fleets performance, including engine oils to keep the engine clean with exceptional lubrication. AMSOIL has done controlled testing on the road showing substantial improvements in fuel economy. AMSOIL products and their oil sampling program allows you to get the maximum safe usage from your oils. AMSOIL heavy duty diesel engine oil is specifically designed to provide extended drain intervals coupled with superior wear protection.

Other components such as transmissions, hydraulics, gears and bearings also benefit from AMSOIL synthetic oils. AMSOIL has spent more than 30 years adding other maintenance products to their line each to extend the life and efficiency of your vehicle. The AMSOIL products are engineered and purpose made for specific reasons based on need, unlike the mineral oils which are made from by-product with impurities and compounds that are a liability for lubrication.

An independent laboratory showed fuel mileage increase of 8.2% on trucks using AMSOIL products in the drive train. What would you do with that savings on your fuel bill? Further savings can be accomplished when you use the extended drain interval program. The improved lubrication will keep the truck on the road longer and with less wear.

AMSOIL is a very reputable company that has provided top customer satisfaction for over 30 years. You can feel good about the AMSOIL products. It is exciting to share news about products that have superior performance and you can be proud to be doing something positive for our environment.
