Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver diesel engine oil is co-engineered by Castrol India and Tata Motors. Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver looks improve Tata trucks fuel efficiency by 3 pct (compared to SAE 15W-40 engine oil). Ravi Kirpalani, Managing Director, Castrol India Limited says Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver 10W-40 has been tested for over four years at Castrol laboratories in Pangbourne, UK, and on Indian roads. It brings together fuel efficiency while being tough to withstand difficult road conditions, and tough operating conditions. This includes overloading.
The co-engineering effort between Tata Motors and Castrol is yet another feather in the cap for an association that spans 30 years. Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver 10W-40 uses system 5 Technology and delivers extended drain interval and reduced emission. It adapts to changing engine conditions to better engine performance in regards to reduced fuel and oil consumption, makes for longer oil drain interval, enhances component life, and increases power.
Ravi Pisharody (Executive Director – CVBU, Tata Motors) says Indian commercial vehicle industry is increasingly aware of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This includes capital cost and operating cost. Diesel cost accounts for about 50 pct of Total Cost of Ownership. Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver 10W40 has the potential to facilitate substantial savings specifically for Tata Motors customers.
Castrol Vecton RX Fuel Saver could potentially help save almost Rs.40,000 a year for a truck traveling 100,000 kms during a year. A truck with average mileage of 4 kmpl will save 750 litres of diesel at 3 pct fuel efficiency improvement at 100000 kms covered. Saving is calculated at diesel cost of Rs.55 per litre for and 750 litres diesel.
