Roadranger Lubricants Receive SAE Environmental Award

Roadranger lubricants have received the "E2T Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award" from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for significant innovations in reducing the environmental impact caused by the transportation industry.

"Roadranger lubricants significantly reduce fluid waste," said Donna Mosher, lubricant engineering specialist for Eaton Corporation's Truck Group. Mosher noted that Roadranger lubricants, which are manufactured exclusively by Cognis Corporation, have brought about notable waste oil reductions due to drain intervals that may be extended for up to seven times longer than those recommended for mineral-based lubricants. In addition, Roadranger Synthetic FE 75W-90 axle lubricant has consistently demonstrated fuel economy improvements in multiple tests of roughly one percent. For a fleet of 1,000 trucks in a typical linehaul application, the one percent savings can add up to a fiscal savings of more than $400,000 per year.

Originally started in 1969, Walter Sellick along with sons Howard and David modified an industrial Ford tractor into a 6,000 lb. forklift for outdoor use.
