HGV Fuel Economy

Improving HGV Fuel Economy with High Performance Engine Oils from Comma

HGV fuel expenditure accounts for 30% of fleet operating costs. Comma highlights the importance of using OEM-approved engine oils to improve HGV fuel economy.

With increasingly stringent emission regulations for diesel engines, vehicle manufacturers have to continually review and make design changes to accommodate legislative and consumer demands. Today, engine oils for HGVs are also evolving towards high performance, low viscosity, semi and fully synthetic engine oils that are more commonly associated with passenger vehicles.

HGV Operating Costs

Fuel expenditure accounts for an estimated 30% of total HGV fleet operating costs. Combined with the drive to improve fuel economy and maintain lubricant integrity between long drain intervals, demands being made on modern HGV engines continue to escalate.

This has created the need for a wider range of specifications and products to choose from. In turn, the process of selecting the right oil for any given vehicle has become more complicated. The consequences of choosing the wrong oil has become more expensive than ever.
