Millers Launches New Range of Energy Efficient Oils

Millers Oils has launched a new range of Energy Efficient oils employing Nanotechnology that have been proven to cut fuel costs by up to 2.5% and reduce engine wear.

The oils reduce friction and the result is a potential 2.5% improvement in fuel economy and up to 50% reduction in engine wear.

Nanodrive Low Friction Technology was first used in motorsport gearbox and engine oils, allowing racers to release more power and torque by reducing frictional losses in the engine. The same technology has allowed the design of Millers Energy Efficient engine and gearbox oils for the everyday car.”

One way to improve fuel economy in an engine is to use a lower viscosity of oil. The consequence of this, using traditionally formulated oil, can be that at operating temperature the oil film thickness is reduced to a point that component wear increases.

Nanodrive technology has overcome this problem and allows a lower coefficient of friction to be achieved, without changing the viscosity of the oil, at the same time maintaining an adequate oil film thickness that minimises wear. This reduces running costs, as a result of less energy being used to simply turn the engine

There are three different engine oils available in the Energy Efficient oils range covering both petrol and diesel vehicles. The formulations come in both full and semi synthetic form with viscosities of 5w30 and 10w40.

The friction that occurs within the transmission is also a contributor to a loss of efficiency. In a gearbox, the friction is caused when the components move against each other with a sliding and rolling action, this is different to the purely sliding action of an engine piston and requires a different oil formulation to absorb the extreme pressure created between metal components. A specially designed formulation has been created for the Energy Efficient range, EE Transmission 75w90.

Millers Oils range of Energy Efficient oils are now available throughout the UK. To

The Millers Oils Energy Efficient range:

EE Longlife ECO 5w30 - Fully synthetic fuel efficient engine oil suitable for the latest technology petrol and diesel engines. Suitable for use in the very latest Ford petrol and diesel engines meeting Euro IV/V emissions standards. 50% reduction in wear, 47% reduction in friction compared to XF Longlife ECO 5w30 ACEA: A5 / B5-08, API: SL, CF

EE Longlife C3 5w30 - Fully synthetic mid SAPS engine oil suitable for the latest technology petrol and diesel engines. Suitable for use in petrol and diesel engines meeting Euro IV/V emissions standards requiring ACEA C3 specification. 14% reduction in wear, 27% reduction in friction compared to XF Longlife C3 5w30 ACEA: C3-08, A3 / B4-04, API: SN, CF

EE Semi Synthetic 10w40 - Semi synthetic high-performance engine oil with higher than average synthetic content, formulated to meet the demanding requirements of today's engines. Recommended for use in modern petrol and diesel engine vehicles where this viscosity of oil is specified by the manufacturer. 42% reduction in wear, 60% reduction in friction compared to XSS 10w40 ACEA: A3 / B4-08, API: SL, CF

EE Transmission 75w90 - A fully synthetic transmission oil to provide maximum protection and fuel economy. For use in car and light van manual gearboxes and axles where the ultimate performance gear oil is required.
API: GL-4, GL-5, ZF: TE-ML 02, TE-ML 05

Millers Oils was founded in 1887 by John Watson Miller, since then the company has displayed a talent for innovation and industry firsts. It was the first to offer diesel specific engine oil for cars and continues to push boundaries to earn its place as a world leader in the technology of low friction. In January 2012,
Millers Oils launched nanotechnology engine oils. Tested against a competitors oil of the same viscosity, Nanodrive recorded 33% lower friction at operating temperatures of 110-110°C. Millers Oils uses the expertise gained in motorsport and performance car development to ensure it remains a leader in
commercial vehicle oils, classic vehicle oils and Industrial lubricants.

Another advert pretending to be news. This site is full of them.

I agree with jim McG, lets have fact not sales waffle.is it passive nanostructure or.molecular
Toyota latest Aygo say 0w 30, and 5w 30 only at a push,then revert. has anyone seen the cost of these specialised oils, per litre! liquid gold! .... now theres an idea.!!!!
