Innovations in fuel treatment and lubrication
technology Reducing Costs going further,
cleaner 9th December 2009
3
Millers Oils - Introduction
Objectives The challenge of biofuels The
opportunity for fuel treatments - Eclipse The
complexity of engine oils The potential for gear
oil advances Future lubricant supply issues
4
Millers Oils - Introduction
Based in Yorkshire
Specialists in lubricants fuel treatments
Our independence provides flexibility choice
Responsible, open and innovative
5
Millers Oils 122 years of Innovation
80s 90s
Launched first diesel specific oil in UK
Pioneers of first long drain oil for CVs
2009
Award winning nanotechnology gear oils
6
Biodiesel The Facts
7
Biodiesel Issues
Injector deposits The need for good detergency
in fuel
Fuel filter plugging good bacterial resistance
Injector pump durability lubricity in fuel
needed
Impact on NOx emissions improved fuel
combustion required
Fuel dilution is more likely shortens oil life
8
The Biodiesel - RME Process
RME Rapeseed Methyl Ester
9
The Global Biodiesel Market Place
10
Effects of Biodiesel on Crankcase Conditions
Oil drain intervals should be reduced
Oil sump management sampling recommended
B5 biodiesel has 8 lower calorific value than
diesel therefore power and fuel economy will
reduce
11
Vehicle OEM Guidelines (2007)
12
Fuel Dilution Issues - 1

15
How Bacterial Issues Appear
Biodiesel attracts moisture naturally - corrosion
Moisture encourages bacterial growth
slimes/smells
Bacteria blocks filters pipes
Leading to engine failure
Once bacteria present in system it is difficult
to remove
16
Yeast, Moulds and Fungi
17
The difference in fuel samples we receive
18
How bacterial activity manifests itself -
practically
19
Biodiesel Conclusions
European commitment to use biodiesel at
government and corporate level Blend ratios will
increase Adverse effect on lubricant
life Adverse effect on fuel system cleanliness
and engine efficiency
20
The potential for fuel treatments
21
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Requirements for a fuel treatment
Increase combustion energy levels
Clean up and keep clean detergent action
Compatible with after treatment systems
Economically viable
Easy to store and use
22
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Issues
Scepticism regarding performance
Exaggerated claims for fuel savings
Expertise required to evaluate performance
accurately
23
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
VW Golf TDi tested at Millbrook Proving Ground
24
Vehicle Tested - DAF MX265 Euro IV 360HP
Produced in association with Millbrook Proving
Ground Ltd,UK

With Fuel Treatment
Normal use
Tested on Cummins L10 Heavy Duty vehicle
27
Clean Injector
Dirty Injector
28
Normal Fuel With Fuel Treatment
Piston Rings
29
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Independent Case Studies
1) Type Contract Distribution 10 week trial
6x2 tractor units, curtain sided. Fuel economy
improvement 2.7
2) Type Chilled food distribution 10 week trial
4x2 6x2 tractor units, fridge trailers Fuel
economy improvement 2.5
3) Type Local Authority Skip wagons Road
Sweepers Fuel economy improvement 5
4) Type - Mixed fleet logistics 8 week trial
Iveco Stralis 430bhp Fuel economy improvement
4.8
30
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Indicative Financial Benefit
2.5 - 5 fuel economy improvement
15,000 35,000 per 1M litres fuel
31
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Indicative CO2 benefit
2.5 - 5 fuel economy improvement
65 tonnes 130 tonnes CO2 reduction
Per 1 Million litres (B5 diesel)
32
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
Fuel Treatments - Conclusions
Much evidence to conclude that the good ones are
effective Reduced maintenance Increased vehicle
life Reduces biofuel issues Can reduce standard
emissions improve fuel economy
33
Millers Oils Fuel Treatments
If everyone did it....
In the UK wed save 3.6 M tonnes of CO2 each
year across all current petrol and diesel usage.
Based on 3 fuel improvement
34
Millers Oils Lubricants
Lubricant Applications
The complexity of engine lubricants
35
Millers Oils Market Drivers
36
Millers Oils Heavy Duty Engine Oils
37
Millers Oils Heavy Duty Engine Oils
Engine oil technology trends
Low SAPS oils required where SCRs/ DPFs are
fitted
Lighter viscosity grades fuel economy
Change to full synthetic oils improved
performance
Lubricant durability critical more severe
conditions
OEM specifications and warranty issues
38
Millers Oils Heavy Duty Engine Oils
Emission targets driven by NOx
Euro III 5g/kWh
Euro IV 3.5g/kWh
39
Millers Oils Driveline Oils
The opportunity for driveline oils
40
Millers Oils Driveline Oils
Future trends
Extended drain intervals fill for life
Thermal durability of oils operating temp.
increasing
Friction performance is critical fuel economy,
parts failure
Improved fuel economy lighter gear boxes,
thinner fluids
41
Millers Oils Driveline Oils
Future trends
New additives and technologies required
Our research into driveline nanotechnology based
lubricants has yielded exceptional performance
Driveline fuel efficiency potential greater than
engine
42
Millers Oils Future Considerations
Total Fleet Fluid Management
Driven by need to reduce costs and environmental
impact
43
Millers Oils Future Considerations
Oil analysis
Extending drain intervals Preventative
maintenance Product evaluation
Emissions evaluation
Standardised tests to measure emissions Impact of
fuel treatments and lubricants Use as a tool for
carbon trading
44
Millers Oils Future Considerations
Fuel economy evaluation
Independent trials properly set up and
evaluated Can be used as a tool for carbon
trading
Waste oil and packaging
Increased responsibility on suppliers to retrieve
waste Increased use of recycled oils for non
critical applications Greater innovation in
packaging to reduce waste
45
Millers Oils Summary
The key points
  • Biofuels opportunity or threat?
  • Fuel treatments can be effective and viable
  • Quality engine oils are vital to vehicle
    performance
  • Driveline oils have been ignored for too long
  • Choose your supplier with care

46
Millers Oils - Conclusions
Lubricants and fuel treatments will continue to
play a key role in the drive for greener
transport
Demands on lubricant performance are increasing
Total fleet fluid management will be key to
ensure costs and emissions are reduced
Supplier partnerships with technical expertise
to work to common goals with organisations are key
