Abstract
In an attempt to reduce fuel consumption and operation costs, especially during cold weather, the two drive axles of a logging truck were insulated to raise the temperatures of the lubricating oils. Thus the oil viscosity and consequently the energy losses owing to oils churning would be reduced. The temperature of the oil in the forward rear axle was recorded continuously for a 240 KM round trip of a logging truck. Insulation details have also been described.

Abstract
Dans une tentative pour réduire la consommation de carburant et les coûts de fonctionnement, particulièrement en saison froide, les deux essieux moteurs d'un camion grumier ont été isolés de façon a élever les températures des huiles lubrifiantes. On espérait ainsi diminuer la viscosité de celles-ci et, par suite, les pertes énergétiques dues au brassage de l'huile. La température de l'huile dans l'essieu avant- arrière a été enregistrée de façon continue durant un trajet aller- retour de 240km parcouru par un camion grumier. Le rapport décrit également les détails de l'isolation.

Abstract
COMPARATIVE TESTS BETWEEN MINERAL OILS AND POLYALPHAOLEPHIN BASE SYNTHETIC OILS IN THE POWER TRAIN OF A FORESTRY HAULAGE TRUCK SHOWED FUEL SAVINGS AND REDUCED FRICTION COEFFICIENT ADVANTAGES FOR THE SYNTHETIC OIL. OPERATING CONDITIONS WHERE FUEL SAVINGS ALONE MAY JUSTIFY THE HIGHER OIL COSTS ARE ALSO GIVEN.

Abstract
Des essais comparatifs entre des huiles minérales et des huiles synthétiques à base de polyalphaolefine, dans le système propulsif d'un camion de transport forestier, ont montré que l'huile synthétique permettait des économies de carburant et une réduction du coefficient de frottement. Le rapport mentionne les conditions de fonctionnement dans lesquelles des économies de carburant peuvent justifier à elles seules l'emploi de ces huiles plus chères.
