Our engines are developed with superior fuel economy in mind

Our most fuel efficient engines

Our engine range has been meticulously engineered to save fuel – without compromising performance. We optimised the combustion chamber geometry. Designed vertical, centrally positioned unit injectors. Increased the gas-fill ratio…

We could go on (and on) about our technical achievements. What’s most important about these innovations is the difference they make to your bottom line. And to the environment.

The I-Shift gearbox helps save fuel and reduce consumption

I-Shift – simple, dependable and very fuel efficient

I-Shift maximises performance and efficiency by monitoring and responding to vehicle mass, road inclination, speed and acceleration. Coupled to a Volvo diesel engine, it reduces fuel consumption by up to 5% compared to a manual gearbox. Combined with I-Roll momentum technology, you save up to 7%. It’s also really easy to use.

We develop tyres that aid fuel efficiency

Align your wheels and inflate your saving

Using the right tyres, at the correct pressure and on correctly aligned wheels and axles, can reduce fuel consumption by up to 14%. Our studies across Europe show that two out of three trucks have incorrectly aligned axles and wheels. So there’s a lot to be gained for very little effort.

Aerodynamic profiles reduce air resistance and, as a result, fuel consumption

Airflow package

An airflow package can improve your fuel economy by as much as 8%. It reduces turbulence, minimises air resistance and deflects wind away from the trailer.  As well as saving fuel and money, it also reduces CO2 emissions, which is great for the environment.
