MOUNT GILEAD, Ohio — Hot Shot’s Secret, manufacturer of a full line of performance fuel and oil additives for fleet and high-performance race vehicles, now provides a full synthetic 15W-40 engine oil in their Green Diamond Fleet line of diesel oils.

Recommended for most diesel applications, the 100% purely synthetic engine oil is infused with Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 Nano Technology and a CK-4 additive package.

Developed specifically for severe duty fleets hauling heavy loads, stop and go deliveries, or operations where there are high level of airborne particulates, Green Diamond Fleet Engine Oil keeps the injectors, turbo and engine cleaner and provides lubrication for optimum long-lasting protection, according to Eric Trimble, Lubrication Specialties Inc. marketing coordinator.

Trimble said Green Diamond Fleet is a pure 100% synthetic engine oil composed of Group III base oils infused with Hot Shot’s Secret’s highly effective FR3 Nano Technology for improved protection.

“This unique blend provides exceptional cleaning, oxidation and thermal stability to prevent the accumulation of deposits, and oil breakdown,” Trimble said. “Shearing and friction is reduced, film strength is preserved and oil stays cleaner longer. With use, fleets can benefit from longer drain intervals, and improved mileage and horsepower.”

Other benefits include reduced soot, noise and vibration.

This fleet oil additive package, CK-4, not only meets the strict requirements from Ford for added wear protection as stated in Ford Specification WSS-M2C171-F1, in comparison to most CJ-4 spec oils, Green Diamond Fleet lowers oil consumption 78%, reduces wear 71% less than typical CJ-4 spec oils and reduces soot 46% over CJ-4. Tests have proven an increase of up to 3% in fuel economy, Trimble said.

Hot Shot’s Secret Green Diamond Fleet engine oil is available as a 5W – 40 or 15W – 40 blend, in either a 1 gallon or 5 gallon container. Green Diamond Fleet is recommended for use every 6,000 miles and can be used for up to 60,000 miles.

COSTA MESA, Cali. — Agility Fuel Solutions and XStream Trucking have announced that Agility will be the exclusive distributor of Xstream’s TruckWings aerodynamic systems for compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks in North America. Agility will also distribute TruckWings on a non-exclusive basis to the diesel truck market.

The patented TruckWings design incorporates folding panels made of impact-resistant, glass-reinforced composites attached to the rear sides and roof of the cab that automatically swing out to close the cab-to-trailer gap at highway speeds and retract against the rear of the cab at lower speeds to leave room for turning maneuvers.

“TruckWings is the first device which completely solves the turbulence problem created by the open area between the tractor and trailer that contributes significantly to a truck’s overall aerodynamic drag,” said Daniel Burrows, XStream Trucking’s founder and CEO. “We are pleased to now partner with Agility to offer TruckWings as a factory option for CNG trucks in North America.”

Agility, a business area of Hexagon Composites ASA, and XStream Trucking have previously partnered to provide TruckWings systems for over 750 CNG trucks used by major fleet operators. Agility’s leadership in providing clean fuel solutions for commercial vehicles coupled with its extensive customer base and value-added aftermarket services will expand XStream’s TruckWings solution to reach the growing CNG truck market throughout North America.

“Agility’s trucking fleet customers are focused on fuel cost savings and on increasing the fuel economy of their CNG trucks. TruckWings are a great answer to this problem, as we’ve demonstrated in real-world use with some of our major fleet customers,” said Eric Bippus, Agility’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing. “We are very pleased to enter into this distribution agreement and to continue to work with XStream Trucking to deliver clean and efficient transportation solutions for the North American trucking market.”
