Case Study HT-G5

NORDE® TECHNOLOGY INCREASES FUEL EFFICIENCY IN TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

OBJECTIVE

By adding our product to the rear-ends and transmission, we sought to perform a real-world efficiency study to monitor the effects of NORDE® Gear Oil technology on Miles Per (U.S.) Gallon.

EQUIPMENT & PROCEDURE
  • A T-680 Kenworth Truck with 550 HP Cummins Diesel Engine was used.
  • Truck was treated with NORDE® GO SAE 50MT-1 Synthetic Transmission Oil in the transmission and NORDE® GO Synthetic SAE 75W-90 GL-5 in the rear-ends
  • Results were logged using a Vnomics proprietary tracking system
  • Study conducted for the entire month of June 2016
  • Truck operations ran as per usual / no change in operations for this study
TRUCK 298 IN DETAIL
  • 60 gal. and 75 gal. diesel tanks
  • Approximately 90 gallons refilled per day
  • No “out-of-town” fueling
  • 80% highway / 20% city driving split
  • Approximate gross weight of the truck is 90,000 lbs.
  • Tandem axle tractor and triple axle trailer
  • Manual transmission
