Kenworth boasts fuel savings with new axle lube

KIRKLAND, Wash. — PACCAR will be making full synthetic axle lube standard on its class 5 to 8 models in the U.S. and Canada starting this summer.

Kenworth will introduce Cognis EMGARD FE 75W-90 into production at plants in Chillicothe, Ohio; Renton, Wash.; and Ste. Therese, Que.

According to Kenworth officials, the new full synthetic lube will provide an estimated one percent fuel economy advantage.

“Fuel economy is extremely important to customers today and an estimated gain of up to one percent in fuel efficiency can help produce significant annual savings for a truck fleet or owner-operator,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales.

Other advantages over conventional gear lubricants include better operating performance, increased gear life, extended drain and all-season lubrication, and reduced maintenance and downtime.

Cognis EMGARD SAE 50 full synthetic transmission fluid is also standard fill on Kenworth class 5 to 8 models.
