TORONTO, Ont. –Total Lubricants was at Truck World to announce its launch into the Canadian trucking industry. Total, the world’s fourth largest oil company, acquired Quebec-based Tribospec Corporation in December, 2007. Now the company is rolling out a full line of lubricants for the heavy-duty truck market, which the company claims can improve fuel mileage by as much as 3%.
Total’s FE (fuel economy) lubricants are already widely used in Europe, and the company says the product line has been adapted for the North American market. The cornerstone of the product line is Total’s Rubia 7900 FE 10W30 CJ-4 motor oil. Combined with Total’s transmission and axle lubricants, fleets and owner/operators can realize significant fuel savings, the company claims.
Total also offers semi-and fullsynthetic lubricants, for applications that demand improved extreme weather performance.
While Total is a relatively new player in the Canadian market, the company is well-established in more than 130 countries around the world and is actively involved in the exploration, refining and production of oil and gas products, says Claude Van Kessel, marketing director with Total Lubricants. The company is headquartered in Montreal and it operates facilities in Pickering, Ont. and Quebec City, Que.
