Fuel economy or false economy?

OEMs are increasingly looking at low HTHS (high temperature, high shear) heavy duty engine oils to help their latest commercial vehicle engine technology meet the fuel economy demands of EU emissions legislation. Therefore, a pragmatic heavy duty engine oil formulation style is key to creating resilient fluids that deliver lasting benefits at a cost that makes sense for the end user.

Afton Chemical believes the most efficient solution is an SAE 5W-20 low HTHS fluid, delivering credible fuel economy benefits without compromising engine durability while supporting longer OEM-recommended drain intervals and striking the right balance between heavy duty engine oil performance and cost.
