RMN - Significant Fuel Saving and CO2 Reduction

The use of the DEX QM lubricants resulted in energy savings of about 6.5%, which is in line with savings reported by logistics carriers (5% without hydraulics).

During the months of January and February in 2019, a test with one of the RMN collection vehicles led to the request to Dex Oil bv to prepare a memorandum for the RMN board that would describe the effects of deploying the Dex oils. Said memorandum was presented to RMN through the fleet manager on March 3, 2019.

It was decided to test two identical vehicles, which would be put in very good condition beforehand, against each other.

SIGNIFICANT FUEL SAFETY (Engine and driveline)
Soon after the Dex lube oil change, a temperature drop was noticeable in the engine of the test vehicle.

  • As for the temperature in the test vehicle's engine, it was about 10°C degrees lower than in the control vehicle.
  • The (lubricating) properties of DEX lubricating oil result in optimum heat transfer in the engine and lubricating power (read less friction).
  • During the test period, a saving of around 3.5% in fuel consumption was observed on the engine and driveline

After engine and driveline, the hydraulic system was supplied with Dex Hydraulic Oil. Almost immediately, a further significant reduction in fuel consumption was observed.

  • In neutral, the hydraulic system absorbed about 6% less energy.
  • After a full working day, in the presence of the fleet manager, a temperature difference of 8°C was observed in the hydraulic system between the test vehicle and the control vehicle (27°C. vs. 19°C.).
  • These temperature differences arise as a result of reduced resistance with the direct consequence of reduced energy absorption.
  • A difference of 30% heat generation in the hydraulic system leads to a reduced energy absorption of at least 3%, which corresponds to the reduced energy absorption of 6% in neutral.

The use of the Dex oils resulted in energy savings of about 6.5%, which corresponds to savings reported by logistics carriers (5% without hydraulic system).


CO2 emissions savings fuel consumption*

  • The CO2 emission factor of NL Diesel is 3,230 Kg CO2/unit (Well to Wheel)*.

CO2 emission saving from lubricant consumption*

  • The saving on account of litres of oil not changed. This amounts to 6.12kg (2.87kg well to crankcase and 3.25 kg disposal and combustion) per litre of oil not changed. Dex oils are guaranteed, for any application, for 4x the usual service life. The total number of litres of oil used per year by RMN can therefore be reduced by around 75%. In terms of CO2 emissions, this quantity may be multiplied by a factor of 6.12 to arrive at the CO2 savings in kilos.
