Fuchs launches long life lubricant for Scania Trucks & Buses
Leading lubricant manufacturer Fuchs has launched a revolutionary new oil for Scania trucks which will double the service life of the vehicle’s diesel particulate filter.
Following extensive testing, Fuchs Lubricants have added Titan Cargo Maxx Sae 5W-30 to its comprehensive automotive range, the first product to secure Scania LDF-4 approval.
Titan Cargo Maxx Sae 5W-30 is amongst those products using XTL-Technology® which delivers exceptional viscosity levels, fuel-saving potential of more than four per cent, optimum wear protection and maximum protection of the exhaust gas after-treatment systems.
It also meets the requirements of modern Euro 6 engines and their exhaust gas after-treatment services.
Rosemary Mellor, Fuchs UK automotive product manager, said: “The requirements of Euro 6 engines mean that, over the last few years, OEMs have been looking for new specifications.
“We are delighted to have met the requirements of Scania and to have produced a product which has a maximum oil drain interval of 120,000km.
“The Scania LDF-4 approval means that the product can be used in virtually all Scania vehicles and will ensure that the vehicle’s warranty is not put at risk by using the incorrect oil.”
The Titan Cargo Maxx Sae 5W-30 is available in 5l, 20l, 205l, 1000l or in bulk.
With over 100 years of experience, Fuchs develops and manufactures a diverse range of lubricants at its Stoke-on-Trent site, including Titan engine oils, gear oils, hydraulic oils, Ecocool metalworking fluids and specialist pharmaceutical lubricants.
