WHY OIL ANALYSIS HELPS YOU
It's a valuable tool for keeping trucks on the road, reducing oil change costs and down time.
It gives you vital information about your engine.
Truck Owners use oil analysis for these reasons:
To discover if there are any developing problems
To see if your oil is properly maintaining its additive protection
To see if your oil change maintenance service interval is correct or can be increased/ improved
Here are 4 Key Proven Reasons why oil analysis will increase profit for your trucking business.
DISCOVER ISSUES BEFORE THEY BECOME PROBLEMS
Oil analysis reports provide wear trends. You’ll see what’s falling out of the normal operating range. Now you can easily locate the source of a developing problem and fix it before it leads to a major breakdown – before it happens on the open road. Oil analysis measures trends with samples on a regular basis. You get the best results and vital information about how it happened.
“Doing consistent oil analysis testing helps to dramatically eliminate downtime”
Eliminating even one oil change a year, saves money, filter, labor time costs and unnecessary down time.
It’s good to be consistent and safe, but if the high quality oil you are using can give your truck 35,000 miles for one interval, then changing at 25,000 time is costing you $$$.
Proper utilization of oil reduces fuel costs up to 5%. If you saved just 1% in fuel consumption, how much profit is that in your pocket.
DETERMINE DRAIN INTERVALS
Oil analysis tells you the condition of your oil, so you’ll know from each interval sample what your oil dependability levels are for TBN (Total Base Number of additive consistency) and TAN (Total Acid Number of contamination).
When the TBN Line and TAN Line cross, you have no protection - Your oil has reached its inability to protect your engine.
IMPROVE RESALE VALUE
The resale value of your truck has so much more value when you have an oil analysis history. The knowledge of your trucks internal condition over a long period of time will increase the value of your truck at resale.
