FE On The Road - Why oil and engine technology go hand in hand

The designs of today’s heavy-duty diesel engines are constantly morphing and evolving, driven by emission legislation and customers’ requirements for efficiency and reliability. High-pressure, common-rail injection systems are now commonly used to improve combustion efficiency, and advances in turbocharger technology have increased power output. Not to mention, exhaust gas recirculation and aftertreatment devices like diesel particulate filters have helped curb harmful emissions and soot.
