CUSTOMER PROFILE

The Coeur d’Alene Resort is located in the Panhandle of Idaho on Lake Coeur d’Alene, considered by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful lakes. The resort offers cruises on this 26-mile long lake, featuring 135 miles of shoreline at 2,128 feet above sea level.

APPLICATION

Coeur d’Alene’s six large boats also take passengers up one of the tributaries, the St Joe River, one of the highest navigable rivers in the world. Their fleet consists of two each 400 passenger, three each 150 passenger and one each 90 passenger boats. Caterpillar, Volvo and Detroit Diesel engines power the fleet.

AREA OF INTEREST

The cruises can accommodate hundreds of people on each cruise boat and the cruises run year round. Oil was being changed out in each boat on a monthly basis. This would require two crewmembers to go down below deck to drain and remove all the used oil from the engines.

LE SOLUTION

In the early 1990’s LE Rep John Kowsky approached Capt. Fred Finney, General Manager, about the benefits of LE’s 8800 MONOLEC ULTRA® 15W/40 engine oil. LE’s 8800 allows the drain intervals to be safely extended and saves energy costs.

CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS

After the resort’s fleet was converted to LE’s 8800 the condition of the oil was monitored and the drain interval extended to 3,000 hours or once a year. This has had a huge environmental impact on the amount of petroleum product Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises is now consuming, not to mention the amount of used petroleum being disposed is significantly less. The mechanic who constantly monitors the fleet’s engines commented that "that oil still looks good and has its viscosity when it reaches 3,000 hours!"

We wish to thank Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises and LE Representative John Kowsky (pictured) for providing the information to prepare this report.
