CLINTON, Mo. (July 12, 2013) — Oil and lubricants marketer Champion Brands L.L.C. is offering what it calls a new user-friendly fuel economy calculator for diesel fleets.
The calculator is available on Champion's website.
"The transportation industry is focused on improving fuel economy," said Karl Dedolph, fleet specialist for Clinton-based Champion Oil. "…Champion's on-line fuel economy calculator helps fleet operators and drivers determine the potential savings that can be achieved by using a new lower viscosity heavy-duty motor oil."
The company claims that, backed by global certifications and extreme field and bench tests, its oils provide the same level of engine protection as leading SAE 15W-40 HD motor oils "but with more end user benefits."
Champion said its SAE 5W-30 UltraFleet lubricant was found to deliver an average of 3.3-percent and up to 4.5-percent fuel economy improvement over a conventional SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 lubricant tested at an independent testing facility using the SAE J1321 fuel test protocol.
Champion produces and blends more than 300 products including fuel, oil, engine additives and lubricants for the automotive, heavy truck, agricultural, industrial and specialty markets.
