Useful Tip:

Transmission Oils for Maximum Performance

Useful tip: Transmission Oils for Maximum Performance

There are effective tools in the race against wear. ZF Aftermarket shows what really matters.

One Oil Is Not Like Another

Only Use the Best for Your Transmission

Modern commercial vehicle transmissions must be reliable, very long-lasting and provide maximum shift comfort. The transmission oil plays a key role in this.

Low-priced oils often do not live up to these standards, so what you save when you buy them costs you more over the following years. As ZF Aftermarket lubricant experts know, a higher-priced oil soon pays for itself in the form of less frequent oil changes and higher wear protection.

ZF-ECOFLUID M

The ZF Aftermarket range includes its own high-performance oils: ZF-ECOFLUID M, for instance, was specially developed for commercial vehicles and significantly extends the required oil change intervals to every three years instead of annually like standard mineral oils. What is more, the lower susceptibility to repairs and high wear protection reduce or prevent vehicle downtimes.

ZF-ECOFLUID M also increases transmission efficiency compared to mineral and semi-synthetic transmission oils, cutting fuel consumption by up to one percent – an annual operating cost saving that runs into three figures.
