LESS FUEL CONSUMED, LESS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Even 1 percent saved in fuel consumption by an optimised tyre set-up means 1 percent saved in carbon emissions. So the optimal tyre set-up brings the haulier a smaller fuel bill and a smaller carbon footprint.
SETTING UP WHEELS AND TYRES FOR FUEL EFFICIENCY
To make the most of these new insights, more than a thousand Volvo workshops are preparing to correct the situation for hauliers all over the world. Ultimately, this will mean talking to our customers about how their tyre set-up can be improved – not least when we see the signs of poorly aligned wheel axles, such as uneven tyre tread. Only then can we help to maximise your day-to-day fuel efficiency.
“We’re not satisfied with building fuel efficient engines, we’re looking for ways to cut fuel consumption throughout the lifetime of the truck– by getting more involved after it has beendelivered to the customer.
The test provides reliable evidence of how muchfuel can be saved, and sharing this knowledgehelps us to deliver the lowest cost performance toour customers.’’
