Guiding you to optimised fuel consumption
Reducing fuel consumption is a must when it comes to a company's economy. 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. Compared to a truck that performed a corresponding haulage assignment back in 1980, the fuel consumption, using diesel engines, has decreased by about 30%.
However, besides vehicle and engine design, fuel consumption for goods vehicle transport is dependent on a number of other factors, such as load conditions, the driver, the equipment and weather conditions.
Volvo has long experience of engine technology to reduce emissions and fulfil all main legislation from Europe, the USA and Japan. Since 2002 an EGR solution has been provided in the USA, a technology that parallels the SCR technology on the European market.
At Volvo Trucks we believe that Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is the best alternative for complying with Euro 4 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 4 and Euro 5.
