Extending oil drain intervals can potentially save fleets thousands of dollars in maintenance costs while significantly reducing vehicle downtime, two elements that are essential for keeping a fleet ahead of the competition.

Historically, fleet managers have based oil drain intervals on calendar intervals or miles driven. But developments in oil and filter technology have forced fleets to rethink the frequency of their oil change program. Intervals based on average data for fleets may not be suited for vehicles in a particular fleet.

Oil analysis can help determine how much longer oil can last but choosing the right filter is equally important.

For example, HUBB filter’s surgical steel media captures more contaminants than a conventional filter and has up to five times the storage capacity. HUBB filters are manufactured to be cleanable and reusable and are guaranteed to last 100,000 miles or 5,000 hours. Its patented filter-in-filter design ensures lasting protection and the safety of an extended oil drain program.

Pairing the right filter with the right oil is crucial in helping fleets implement a successful and safe extended oil drain program. A program that is not well thought out has the potential to not only waste those precious dollars that were spent on the oil but it can also hurt the life of a vehicle’s engine.

    Any fleet or shop manager who is worth even half of her/his salary already knows this. The article isn't really an article at all but rather an ad for Hubb filters.
