Unstoppable Stories: BSA Trucking

Helping BSA Trucking’s trucks stay on the road longer so that its drivers could spend more time at home.

Beginning with a single truck in 1998, BSA Trucking has grown into a full-sized fleet of 31 trucks and 60 drivers. The company’s namesakes – Blake, Scottie and Amy – grew up helping with the family business and now work in the office and the shop. Every week, driving teams make the coast-to-coast journey from North Carolina to California and back, racking up nearly 515,000 kilometers a year. With distances like that, keeping engines protected and running reliably is key to a successful business. And, with fewer oil drains, the cost savings are significant.

As a family-run business, it’s important to BSA Trucking for their drivers to spend as much time at home, therefore seeing value in ensuring their vehicles are operating as efficiently as possible.

  • Nearly 4X extension in oil drain intervals

  • 120,000 km ODI for the fleet’s Cummins ISX15 engines

  • Drivers could spend more time at home

To find opportunities to further optimize their fleet, the company began exploring opportunities to extend oil drain intervals beyond the OEM-recommended limit of 48,000 kilometers, and they approached the Mobil Delvac™ team to help identify the right lubricant solution.

ExxonMobil engineers recommended that BSA Trucking use Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super heavy duty engine oil. Formulated with excellent viscosity control along with wear protection and oxidation stability, Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super engine oil enables greater engine efficiency and longer life for both the engine and oil.

After switching to Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super heavy duty engine oil, BSA Trucking was able to extend oil drain intervals for its Cummins ISX15 engines to 86,000 kilometers. As a result, Mobil Delvac™ 1300 Super engine oil helped BSA Trucking undergo fewer oil drains and less maintenance, allowing their trucks to stay on the road longer, increase productivity and most importantly, allow their drivers to spend more time at home.
