Alaskan fleet trusts Mobil Delvac™ oil to weather extreme conditions | Mobil™
For drivers hauling freight for Bighorn Enterprises in Fairbanks, Alaska, engine performance can be a matter of life and death. The roads they travel span barren, brutal wilderness, where weather and road conditions test a driver’s mettle and a truck’s durability.
“We deal with extremes,” says owner Joshua Bennett. “The temperatures can drop to 65, 70 below zero.”
Bennett says it’s crucial to protect his fleet 45 power units, along with construction equipment such as excavators, bulldozers and loaders to keep his business productive and profitable despite hauling to destinations as remote as the North Slope and Prudhoe Bay.
Saving by switching
As to why he trusts the Mobil Delvac™ brand, Bennett says seeing was believing. ''I used to use a different oil brand, and a friend of mine showed me the differences of a test that he had done on two trucks with a hundred thousand miles on them, which convinced me to switch to Mobil Delvac, '' Bennett recalls. '' You couldn’t tell [the engine lubricated with Mobil Delvac] had a mile on it."
