Citgo Lubricants announced it has developed GreenWay, an initiative that takes on environmental stewardship issues and connects them with measureable economic savings and increased efficiency.
Government mandates from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Transportation to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases have spurred innovation and technological advancement, including the important change from conventional to synthetic lubricants, the company said.
GreenWay delivers elite, fully-synthetic products that are backed with the company’s state-of-the-art LubeAlert Oil Analysis Program. Through the initiative, Citgo works one-on-one with fleets to build customized solutions. These solutions focus on extending drain service intervals, lengthening component life and reducing fuel costs, which can add up to more than $4,000 in savings annually per unit. Other elements in this equation include advanced technologies that are leading to breakthroughs in trucking such as aerodynamic design and materials as well as hybrid capabilities, the company added.
The GreenWay family of synthetic products includes: Citgo CitGuard SynDurance Synthetic Engine Oil SAE 5W-40; Citgo SynDurance Synthetic Gear Oil SAE 75W-90; Citgo SynDurance Synthetic Gear Oil SAE 50; Citgo SynDurance Premium Synthetic 460 Grease #00; and Citgo SynDurance Premium Synthetic 460 Grease #02.
“To reach the goal of 15% reduction in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for model year 2018, heavy-duty trucks must embrace offerings like GreenWay, as well as other industry initiatives,” said Mark Betner, Citgo product manager. “We are proud to offer cleaner and more efficient products and programs that will meet the government standards while also increasing savings on the trucking industries’ bottom line.”
