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.
