Both are 26-tonne Range T380 6x2 rigid curtainsided vehicles, supplied on a six-year contract hire deal through BRS, and follow two Renault Range D Wide 18-tonne curtainsiders which have been running on Millers Oils’ fleet since 2014.
Delivering lubricants across the UK, the new Range T380 sleeper cabs – which have Roco Truck Bodies’ rigid curtains, Mellor Flow Trans’ inter pump hydraulics and full rear closure tail lifts – were specified with Renault Trucks Comfort Pack and Fuel Eco Pack.
“Our drivers are out on the road for two or three days at a time, so it’s vital that we create an environment where they feel appreciated,” states Millers Oils managing director Jamie Ryan.
“I was first introduced to the Range T two years ago at the CV Show: I sat in the truck and was extremely impressed by the size and comfort of the cab,” he continues.
“Our drivers’ satisfaction is highly catered for in these top-spec Range Ts and we’ve even added extras such as air suspended seats, three ambient lighting modes, microwave, fridge, TV and DVD player.”
But Ryan also points this new trucks’ fuel efficiency.
“Through our Eclipse fuel treatments, Millers Oils is working hard to increase fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and maintain clean injectors.
“Our specific aim was to invest in energy saving vehicles, like the Range T, which has had aerodynamic improvements made and … these new vehicles will help sustain and prolong our fleet life as well as helping to protect the environment too.”
