To help fleets find ways to reduce fuel costs, Paccar Leasing Co (PacLease) has an informational fuel economy guide.

“Our guide explains how to improve fuel economy, from proper vehicle specification to idle reduction technologies, to driver training and trip planning,” said Bob Southern. president of PacLease.

The eight-page guide provides plenty of tips, plus quantifies how changing specs or driver behavior can have a fuel economy payback. “Simple things, like spec'ing underhood air cleaners, can save up to 2 percent in fuel,” said Southern. “Or controlling the top speed in your trucks. Reducing it from 65 to 60 mph can bring your fuel economy up by around 6 to 8 percent.”
