The Melrose-Mindoro School District, located north of Milwaukee in Melrose, Wisconsin, has been able to cut maintenance costs for its school buses by switching to synthetic lubricants. Delvac 1, a synthetic engine oil developed by Mobil Oil Corporation, has extended oil change intervals, as has Mobilube SHC, a synthetic lubricant for transmissions and differentials. The synthetic lubricants also flow freely at temperatures well below freezing, thus increasing starter life, as well as battery life. Fuel consumption is also reduced and component life extended.
