Fleet managers are major purchasers of heavy duty trucks to move freight. New regulations are driving changes in engine and emission system hardware that impact their operations in many ways. New fuel efficiency regulations will potentially lower fuel costs, which is their largest operating expense. However, fuel efficient engine oils may not be backward compatible to older engines, which complicates service operations and raises the risk of misapplication.
