PORTLAND, Ore. – Roadranger Fuel-Efficient (FE) 75W-90 Synthetic Axle Lubricant is now available as a factory option on Freightliner’s Cascadia, Coronado, Columbia and Century Class S/T trucks. Independent research has confirmed that the addition of Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant may result in reductions of fuel consumption by more than 1%, though officials say results may vary and require proper use/application.
In addition to potential cost-saving benefits, Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant is designed to extend vehicle life by improving operation in extremely low and high temperatures and by providing better protection against gear-wear in high-horsepower, high-torque, high-speed, heavy-load and severe applications.
“Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant not only generates significant cost savings, but also enhances overall performance,” said Melissa Clausen, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “We are always seeking new solutions that impact our customers’ bottom lines.”
Additional features of the lubricant include its resistance to oxidation at high operating and peak drivetrain temperatures, and its advance seal conditioning base additives, which help maintain and extend the life of seals, officials said. The lubricant is also non-corrosive to copper and other yellow metals often found in drivetrain systems, according to Freightliner.
