Ex-Box 1

A further four Scania trucks have been added to Exol Lubricants’ fleet.

The additions include two new trucks for its Rotherham site, which are 13-litre G450 low roof cabs, and two for its Wednesbury site, which are nine-litre, G320 rigid high roof cabs.

Powerful and fuel-efficient, the new 13-litre trucks feature SCR only technology, which Exol said allows it to significantly reduce its environmental impact and fuel consumption without compromising strength.

G-series features improved injectors and combustion chambers, combined with the new rear axle ratio, meaning the engine speed is reduced and fuel consumption is cut by 3% for the 13-litre engine.

The nine-litre engines provide a significant weight reduction compared to the 13-litre engine alternative, enabling Exol to increase its load without compromising performance.

Gear-shifting performance is also improved thanks to the lay shaft break, boosting efficiency and saving time when changing gear.

The cab’s interior has been specially designed to optimise the driver’s position and modular instrument panel. Drivers can access a larger display with improved graphics and intuitive controls.

Steve Dunn, Exol sales and marketing director, said: “These additions will enable us to meet continued demand up and down the country, while helping us to efficiently control our fuel consumption and keep our drivers as comfortable as possible at all times.”

Both set of vehicles are fully specified and come with full sets of dura bright alloy wheels.
