A full synthetic axle lube that will become standard on Kenworth Class 5 to 8 models starting this summer can save customers up to 1% on fuel economy, parent company Paccar said.

Produced by Cognis, the Emgard FE 75W-90 will be available in the U.S. and Canadian markets. It improves upon conventional gear lubricants in operating performance, gear life, extended drain and all-season lubrication while reducing downtime, Paccar said.

“Fuel economy is extremely important to customers today and an estimated gain of up to 1% in fuel efficiency can help produce significant annual savings for a truck fleet or owner-operator,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant gm for marketing & sales.
