To meet warranty conditions, the freight forwarder had to reduce oil change intervals from 120,000 kilometers to 30,000 kilometers, increasing costs and additional CO2 emissions. A trial was conducted with the truck manufacturer to address this, analyzing engine oils every 5,000 kilometers. e test revealed that the engine oils in four trucks reached the 30,000-kilometer milestone without any issues and exhibited good quality. e analysis data indicated that the oil could be changed every 90,000 kilometers, and the manufac - turer approved extended oil service intervals of up to 65,000 kilometers. As a result, the freight forwarder would save over €75,000 annually in engine oil costs, leading to a more favorable cost structure and improved CO2 balance. In conclusion, optimizing lubricant usage through condition-based oil changes offers environmental and financial benefits. Companies can extend oil service intervals by implementing regular oil analyses and reducing oil consumption, CO2 emissions, and costs. e examples of wind turbines and goods vehicles demonstrate the positive outcomes that can be achieved by prioritizing lubricant management. ese practices contribute to climate protection and help companies achieve their sustainability goals while improving their bottom line.
