“A second major benefit of Mannol lubricants is that an efficient running engine is less prone to problems. The oils also have excellent cleaning properties, which reduce the build up of sludge and other impurities which can lead to mechanical issues. This means that the vehicle is more reliable, even over extended service intervals and that costly vehicle down time can be reduced.”
One of the most popular Mannol HGV oils is TS-6 UHPD 10W-40 Eco 7106, modern synthetic oil formulated for heavy-duty and high-speed diesel engines that operate in difficult conditions.
7106 has successfully passed road and laboratory tests at Mercedes-Benz, MAN and MTU centres and has their written manufacturer approvals. It is said to provide excellent operating properties over a wide temperature range and can be used over long life intervals.
Mannol TS-7 UHPD 10W-40 Blue 7107 is also an all-weather synthetic oil and has approvals from Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, MAN, Mack and Renault. Cited benefits include an innovative additive package, excellent anti-friction properties and increased thermal oxidative stability, with first class cleaning properties.
It also meets the needs of Euro I – V and VI where a performance level of CK-4 or lower is required.
