Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants’ fuel efficient engine oil designed for advanced commercial vehicle engines, has gained approval from MAN Truck & Bus for its latest M 3677 specification. Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 is now approved for use in all Euro 5 and Euro 6 MAN trucks, providing the opportunity for more commercial vehicle operators to optimise engine performance and improve fuel economy.
Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 has been approved against MAN’s stringent M 3677 standard during an extensive two-year-long field trial. The M 3677 standard is recommended by MAN for use in Euro 6 engines with exhaust after-treatment technologies involving a combination of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) systems. The standard allows extended oil drain intervals of up to 100,000 km with DPF servicing every 500,000 km. All lubricants that carry the M 3677 standard can also be used for Euro 5 applications that have used M 3477 quality. The M 3677-approved lubricants meet increased requirements compared to the oils carrying M 3477 standard.
“Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 is now approved for the majority of Euro 6 trucks which can offer a number of benefits to commercial vehicle operators,” said Ahmet Aras, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “In addition to offering the potential for commercial vehicle operators to improve the fuel economy of their fleet, they can also realise other benefits including reducing the need to purchase multiple oils and helping to streamline their overall operation.”
Alongside its approval for Euro 6 trucks, Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 has also been proven to offer significant fuel economy benefits in commercial vehicles. Independent fuel economy tests were recently conducted at Millbrook, a leading international vehicle test and development facility in the UK. Two Volvo FM440 Euro 5 trucks, loaded to 75 percent Gross Vehicle Weight (circa 44,000 kg) undertook a series of fuel economy tests under highway driving conditions. Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 achieved an average fuel economy gain of 1.8 percent.
