Note: Savings indicated above are typical values seen in both field and lab test evaluation. They do not represent a guarantee that savings will be achieved. Actual savings may be higher or lower than this calculation. There is no universally agreed and harmonised methodology for calculating CO2 intensities that addresses all the specific requirements of lubricant products production.
1 Rimula Ultra / R6 LME 5W-30: Fuel Economy Improvement 2,0% – Compared with a typical 10W-40 oil over a 100,000km oil-drain interval in a controlled field trial
1 Rimula R5 LE 10W-30: Fuel Economy Improvement 1.5% – Compared to a typical 15W-40 oils in on- the-road field testing in medium duty trucks
2 Using GHG intensity factor 2.63 kg CO2 / litre of diesel (Source: JEC WtW Study v4.a, 2014, also used in the EU Fuels Quality Directive default values)
