Optimum introduces Texaco Techron HD to the bus industry at ALBUM 2015
Bus and coach lubricants specialist Optimum Oils is teaming up with Chevron Lubricants to introduce an engine cleaning product completely new to the bus and coach industry at the important ALBUM conference in May.
Chevron’s Texaco Techron HD can remove injector deposits from engines, which are now more prevalent due in part to the rise in the use of biodiesel and accentuated by the higher injector pressures inherent at Euro 5 and 6, and return the unit to levels of fuel efficiency normally associated with new engines. Chevron is rolling out Techron HD to UK truck operators but this is the first time the product has been offered in the bus and coach industry.
Optimum Oils is a highly successful specialist lubricants distributor which claims to serve around 40% of British bus and coach fleets. Its Managing Director, oil industry expert Cliff Thrussell, comments: “Our customers are frequently reporting loss of performance and fuel economy from modern diesel engines, particularly on intensive stop-start inner city applications. Uniquely Techron HD, which is available either as a one shot clean up treatment or as a continually dosed cleaner, returns engines to health and can maintain them at peak efficiency for a modest investment. This has a positive impact on both fuel economy and emissions”.
“We are hard at work on a programme to introduce our Techron HD product to UK truck fleets but have been seeking a partner to work with us in the specialised bus and coach sector. We are delighted that Optimum, a true expert in the needs of passenger transport fleets, is going to work with us and we wish them every success at ALBUM”, says Dave Spence, Chevron Lubricants’ Commercial Sector Marketing Manager.
NOTE TO EDITORS: Cliff Thrussell and his colleagues hope to welcome bus and coach media representatives to their stand at ALBUM (taking place at Warrington on 12 and 13 May). They will outline in detail the benefits of Techron HD and how it works.
