Dana Holding Corp. recently announced the launch of an all-new synthetic gear oil to improve fuel economy in high-efficiency drivetrain solutions.
The Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant is specifically formulated to improve drive axle efficiency in a variety of on-highway applications. When used in combination with the company's latest drive axles, the new lubricant can improve vehicle efficiency and reduce fleet operating costs.
The gear oil's performance benefits include reduced friction and spin loss, a lower stabilization temperature, and more stable viscosity during operation.
Vehicle tests have indicated that the use of the Spicer XFE 75W-90 axle lubricant could also enable additional fuel savings, resulting in a payback of the purchase cost within six months when compared to currently approved synthetic axle lubricants.
In testing specified by SAE International and Dana's materials engineering department, the gear oil met requirements for SAE J2360 and was qualified to meet Dana SHAES256 Rev C specifications.
Founded in 1904 and based in Maumee, Ohio, Dana is a global leader in the supply of highly engineered driveline, sealing and thermal-management technologies that improve the efficiency and performance of vehicles with both conventional and alternative energy powertrains.
