Profit Through Prevention - Best Environmental Practices for Fleet Maintenance: Chapter 11: Engine Oil Life Extension
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 11 of 14 for this video. Fleet maintenance facilities generate large amounts of used oil. Most facilities change the oil of vehicles based upon calendar dates and mileage rather than the actual condition of the oil. An oil analysis program will help to determine when an oil change is necessary and reduce costs. The advantages of oil testing include, less used oil generation, less oil use, cost savings, and it can be used as a diagnostic tool. To implement a cost saving oil analysis program, a facility must define baseline information, perform engine oil sampling, and evaluate oil contaminants. Samples are sent out to an oil testing lab. The lab then sends back results. These results may contain clues as to potential mechanical problems before they get too large.
