The fuel savings obtained thanks to our Fuel Economy lubricants have been proved by:
1/FAMOUS CERTIFICATION BODIES:
UTAC: Proven economies over the whole drive train
Having been conducted at one of the most recognized and prestigious independent testing facilities in the United States, testing of TOTAL Fuel Economy Lubricants provided fuel savings. RUBIA TIR 7900 FE 10W-30 engine oil alone enables a fuel savings of 1.28% when hot running (*) as compared with the standard RUBIA TIR 7900 15W-40 lubricant (which represents 90% of a truck duty cycle)This performance is further improved with the use of Fuel Economy transmission lubricants.
The UTAC has awarded TOTAL a certificate following tests carried out on MAN, RENAULT Premium and VOLVO FH trucks. The tests consisted of those comparing the performance of FE lubricants with that of standard lubricants and the lubricants’ performance led to the UTAC to award a certificate confirming the savings generated due to the combined use of Fuel Economy lubricants (engines, gearboxes and differentials lubricants).
The Union Technique de l’Automobile du motocycle et du Cycle (UTAC) works with car makers for the development of their products. The UTAC is a technical body registered with the European Commission and UNO and is one of the 31 certification bodies recognized throughout the world.

MILLBROOK : A certified 3% economy
A certification delivered by Millbrook based on 5 campaigns of tests:
Following a series of 5 tests spread over several years and carried out on different truck brands (VOLVO, DAF, SCANIA, RENAULT TRUCKS and MAN),
Millbrook has confirmed by its certificate that the combined use of our engine and transmission (gearboxes and differentials) Fuel Economy lubricants enables savings of 1 litre per 100 km/62 miles or 3%.
Even more savings for vehicles used on urban routes (buses, garbage trucks) :
The tests conducted at Millbrook have proven that the savings generated by Fuel Economy lubricants are even higher in an urban route than in a long-distance route.
For the last 40 years Millbrook has provided different types of services to its customers in the automobile industry. Millbrook is recognized across the world as a certification body: due to their team of experts, their state of the art equipment (engine test beds, open-air test tracks) and the onsite presence of the VCA (UK Vehicle Certification Agency).

TUV : average savings of 1.34 % , up to 6.41%
Following a series of tests conducted on a MAN TGX 440 (Euro 4) truck, the TÜV certified in the conclusion of its report that the sole use of Fuel Economy engine oil (RUBIA TIR 8900 FE 10W-30) makes for an average savings of 1.34%.
The combined use of engine (RUBIA TIR 8900 FE 10W-30) and transmission (TRANSMISSION XS FE 75W-80 and TRANSMISSION SYN FE 75W-90) lubricants has even enabled a fuel economy of up to 6.41% (under certain duty conditions).Those results were based on comparison with standard products: 10W-40 engine oil and 80W-90 transmission oil.
TÜV Rheinland is a German certification body whose primary focus is the safety and quality of products, systems and services. Represented in over 60 countries and totalling over 13 300 employees worldwide, the TÜV is one of the most famous certification bodies in the world, known first and foremost for its professionalism and their stringent analysis and diagnostic requirements.

One of the most well-known research centres in the United States
Having been conducted at one of the most recognized and prestigious independent testing facilities in the United States, testing of TOTAL Fuel Economy Lubricants provided fuel savings. RUBIA TIR 7900 FE 10W-30 engine oil alone enables a fuel savings of 1.28% when hot running (*) as compared with the standard RUBIA TIR 7900 15W-40 lubricant (which represents 90% of a truck duty cycle) This performance is further improved with the use of Fuel Economy transmission lubricants.
2/ FLEET TESTS
TOTAL Fuel Economy lubricants were not just tested in the labs and the most renowned testing facilities in the world; they were tested where it matters – in the field. Tests were performed in order to show Field Proven Fuel Economy. An average savings of 3.27% measured by the engine ECU (ECU – Engine Control Unit) were obtained thanks to the combined use of Fuel Economy engine oils (Rubia TIR 7900 FE 10W-30) and Fuel Economy transmission fluids (SAE 50 100% synthetic and 75W-90).* Tests carried out on vehicles fitted with the Cummins ISX engine, Eaton gearboxes and Dana differentials.
3/ LABEL TOTAL ECOSOLUTIONS FOR RUBIA W30 FUEL ECONOMY DIESEL ENGINE OILS
RUBIA xW-30 fuel economy diesel engine oils are designed for use in industrial vehicles such as trucks, buses and waste collection vehicles, to improve fuel efficiency and therefore reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Many RUBIA Fuel Economy engine oils have been awarded the Total Ecosolutions label.
The Total Ecosolutions Advantage and environmental performance
Because fuel economy oils have an optimized viscosity profile, they reduce the friction that causes power loss in the lubricated parts, thereby improving fuel efficiency and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. They are also more fluid than standard mineral oils, while retaining their ability to protect against engine wear. http://www.total.com/sites/default/files/atoms/files/fiche-produit-total-ecosolutions-engine-oil-for-industrial-vehicles-en.pdf
It has been proven that these Fuel Eco Rubia xW30 engine oils, (compared to the most widely used 15W-40 engine oil), help to achieve:
1,1 to 1,3 % reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and 1,1 to 1,3 % reduction in energy consumption, that is equivalent to 1.2 tons of CO2 emissions offset over a distance of 100,000 kilometers. Given the size of the market, the improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions significantly reduce our customers’ environmental footprint.
