Study Reveals AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants Increase Fuel Economy 6.54 Percent in Diesel Trucking Applications

To determine the fuel economy benefits of its synthetic lubricants, AMSOIL INC. simultaneously compared fuel consumption in two nearly identical 2001 Kenworth T800B short- to medium-haul diesel trucks in accordance with the SAE J1321 In-Service Fuel Consumption Test Procedure. The procedure’s primary goal is to eliminate all operating and environmental variables that may influence fuel economy - except lubricant selection.

Testing demonstrates use of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants in short- to medium-haul diesel applications can increase fuel economy, and in this case did by 6.54 percent.
