Guiding you to optimised fuel consumption
Reducing fuel consumption is a must when it comes to economy of a company. But even more so when it comes to environmental issues. At Volvo we believe in the benefits of cleaner technology. It is a mission we take seriously. Just to give you one example: between 1980 and 2001, engine efficiency and the normal fuel consumption, using diesel engines, has decreased by about 30%.

However, besides vehicle and engine design the fuel consumption for goods vehicle transport is dependent on a number of factors, such as load factor, the driver, the equipment and weather conditions.

 

SCR technology
At Volvo Trucks we believe that Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is the best alternative for complying with the Euro 5 emission legislation. SCR is a well-proven and reliable technology without limitations in horsepower output and it has been in use in Europe since 2004. SCR also represents the most fuel-efficient solution among the techniques available for Euro 5.The solution uses less fuel, offer higher hp and the cooling or oil systems are not affected.
