Going Green and Saving Fuel
As fuel prices return to higher levels, even a small increase in fuel economy can pay back big dividends. Numerous studies have documented an increase in fuel economy of 1 to 3 percent or more from the use of a semi synthetic or full synthetic engine oil. If your 18 wheeler is currently averaging 6.25 miles per gallon and you save 1.50%, you could gain a tenth of a mile per gallon. May not sound like a lot, but over 40,000 miles just a 1/10th of a mile per gallon increase reduces your fuel spend by 100 gallons or $300 which more than offsets any increased cost of lubricant.
