Taking fleets further: The ExxonMobil Optimised ODI Process

Every fleet has different needs. Because of varying truck routes, haul lengths and load weights, custom care is necessary.

That’s why the ExxonMobil Optimised Oil Drain Interval (ODI) Process is driven by data, powered by Mobil Delvac lubricants and supported by the ExxonMobil team. The partnership is tailored – fleet by fleet – to make sure that you get the most out of your equipment.

ExxonMobil’s lubricant technology expertise helps fleets extend service intervals, empowering you to:

Establishing fleet maintenance service oil drain intervals is a powerful approach for reducing total cost of ownership, and ExxonMobil works with fleets to determine what’s best for each individual business. With the Optimised ODI Process, you’ll receive a customised preventive fleet maintenance service schedule. But it all starts with identifying potential benefits.

Discover how the four-step Optimised ODI Process works:

1. Feasibility analysis

First, we evaluate your fleet’s duty cycle and current fleet maintenance practices. We also use Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis to perform a historical used oil analysis (UOA) review, analysing data to assess the health of your fleet and the potential to optimise the service intervals. Then, a target Optimised ODI is established and a field test protocol is developed. Find how Mobil Serv can help your fleet. https://mobilserv.mobil.com/en/

2. Documenting performance via field testing

Next, we target the trucks that are most representative of your fleet’s duty cycle(s) and institute the recently developed field test protocol. This protocol typically includes a UOA sampling regimen to gather meaningful data on the stress placed on your fleet.

3. Evaluating results

Finally, the UOA test results are analysed, revealing the impact that different engine technologies, your specific duty cycle and Mobil Delvac engine oil technology have on your fleet’s preventive maintenance program. ExxonMobil technical experts offer their final Optimised ODI recommendations and establish an oil analysis regimen for program stewardship. Occasionally, a visual inspection may be performed to validate your equipment’s capability to operate on these new recommendations.

4. Staying connected

Long after the testing data is reviewed and the final recommendations are made, ExxonMobil’s fleet maintenance program is there to safeguard your fleet’s success. Customers enrolled in the Optimised ODI Process continue to benefit from:

  • Periodic reviews to ensure business objectives are being met and to identify changes in the fleet’s duty cycle.
  • Customized UOA progress reports to uncover continuous improvement opportunities.
  • Ongoing education and training on the Optimised ODI Process.
