New Spicer XFE 75W-90 Drive Axle Lubricant Offers Further Improvements in Fuel Efficiency
Dana Holding Corporation has announced the launch of Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant, at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s 2015 Annual Meeting. An all-new synthetic gear oil to further improve fuel economy in high-efficiency drivetrain solutions while qualifying for an initial 500,000-mile drive axle lubrication change interval.
Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant is specifically formulated to improve drive axle efficiency in a variety of on-highway applications. Dana engineers have validated numerous performance benefits of Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant, including reduced friction and spin loss, a lower stabilization temperature, and more stable viscosity during operation. Vehicle tests indicate that the use of this lubricant could enable additional fuel savings to result in a payback of typical purchase cost within six months when compared with currently approved synthetic axle lubricants.
Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant passed meticulous testing specified by SAE International and Dana’s Materials Engineering Department. It met requirements to SAE J2360 and was qualified to meet Dana SHAES256 Rev C specifications. Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant can improve vehicle efficiency and reduce fleet operating costs when used in combination with the latest efficient, robust, and lightweight drive axles from Dana, such as the Spicer AdvanTEK 40 and Spicer Pro-40 tandem axles for 6x4 configurations as well as the Spicer EconoTrek 6x2 tandem axle.
Dana is featuring the new extra fuel-efficient Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant in booth 1222 at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s 2015 Annual Meeting this week. For more information about Dana's innovations for commercial-vehicle fleets, visit www.dana.com/commercialvehicle.
