Our aim is to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership for end-users in the construction equipment industry, hence, we focus on all types of costs, including product cost, maintenance costs, and administration costs.
The high-performance lubricants from GS Caltex offer reliability at all temperatures, lower oil consumption, significantly lower fuel consumption, and extend service intervals. Whenever engines and gearboxes run freer and more reliably, operating costs are lower because they consume less. And just 1% lower fuel consumption (depending on operating conditions) means fuel savings of several hundred rupees per vehicle every year.
