Moving to Higher Performing Lubricants

No matter where in the world you operate, or how advanced your market’s fuel economy and emissions control standards are, choosing higher performance, heavy-duty diesel lubricants for commercial vehicles makes sound business sense.

Whether Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, or Oceania, using higher performing lubricants can directly benefit your overall operation.

But today, higher performing lubricants are continually evolving to provide greater durability and fuel economy benefits, keeping vehicles more efficient and more productive for longer, leading to greater profitability for the vehicle owner. In contrast, less advanced lubricants can lead to higher operating and maintenance costs, greater downtime and reduced profitability over the life of the vehicle.


Simply, switching to higher performing lubricants can be the right choice for your business. While the lubricants market evolves at a unique pace from region to region, there is nevertheless opportunity for all to choose higher performing lubricants that protect hard-working engines, deliver increased efficiency and help drive your business forward.
