The truck parc consumes engine oil only 1.5 times less than passenger car parc


The experts of the analytic agency AUTOSTAT came to this conclusion during the preparation of a new marketing report.

We should note that the parc of medium and heavy trucks as of January 1st, 2019 was approximately 3.76 million units and it was 11.5 times smaller than the parc of passenger cars.

However, in terms of consumption of engine oil, it was only 1.5 times less than the passenger parc. The reasons for this are obvious: firstly, the volumes of oil filling in the engines of trucks are many times greater than the volumes of filling in the engines of cars, and, secondly, the frequency of changing the oil is very dependent on the type, purpose and characteristics of the truck.

For example, almost 40% of the parc of trucks need fill volumes from 20 to 35 liters of engine oil, and the largest share of the engine oil market is accounted for truck tractors - about 37% and the smallest - for vans - 9%.

Characteristic features of the Russian engine oil market are also: the need to use a significant amount of oil for gasoline engines and the demand for a large amount of oil that meets the outdated quality standards. Both facts are explained by the presence in the parc of a large share of Soviet-made cars. In the first case, these are GAZ and ZIL trucks, equipped with gasoline engines, and in the second case - KAMAZ, MAZ, KRAZ and URAL. According to our calculations, the active parc of trucks with gasoline engines includes about 660-670 thousand units, and the active parc of domestic trucks with diesel engines that meet the standards not higher than API CF-4, reaches almost 600 thousand units.
