Roadranger Fuel Efficient Synthetic Axle Lube Now Available for Freightliner Trucks

PORTLAND, ORE. – Dec. 15, 2008 – Freightliner Trucks today announces the availability of Roadranger Fuel Efficient (FE) 75w-90 Synthetic Axle Lubricant as a factory-installed option on its Cascadia™, Coronado®, Columbia® and Century Class® S/T trucks.

Independent research has confirmed that the addition of Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant may result in reductions of fuel consumption by more than one percent (results may vary and require proper use/application).

In addition to its cost-saving benefits, Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant extends vehicle life by improving operation in extremely low and high temperatures and by providing better protection against gear-wear in high-horsepower, high-torque, high-speed, heavy-load and severe applications.

“Roadranger FE Synthetic Axle Lubricant not only generates significant cost savings, but also enhances overall performance,” said Melissa Clausen, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “We are always seeking new solutions that impact our customers’ bottom lines.”

Additional features of the lubricant include its resistance to oxidation at high operating and peak drivetrain temperatures, and its advance seal conditioning base additives, which help maintain and extend the life of seals. The lubricant is also non-corrosive to copper and other yellow metals often found in drivetrain systems.

Made with high-quality synthetic base stock and high-performance additives, Roadranger Synthetic Axle Lubricants are manufactured by Cognis Corporation.
