"THE ARRIVAL OF NEW CATEGORIES OF ENGINE OILS WILL HELP RAISE AWARENESS OF THE FUEL EFFICIENCY BENIFITS OF THE LARGE RANGE OF OILS AVAILABLE" Mike Roeth, Operation Lead, Trucking Efficiency

News: New Confidence Report Published on Low-Viscosity Lubricants

By Carbon War Room June 28, 2016
The latest Confidence Report released today by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency and Carbon War Room gives the industry a foundational understanding of low-viscosity oil and how it contributes to efficiency. It helps fleets rationalize their investment in low-viscosity engine oil by providing an unbiased overview of the oil’s benefits and challenges. Since 2003, fleets have been ramping up their investments in lower-viscosity lubricants with adoption rates for engine oils reaching 40% among the largest, most efficiency-conscious fleets. However, adoption rates are much lower in the industry as a whole at 20%. Read More.

News: Trucking Efficiency Publishes Confidence Report On Tractor Aerodynamics

By CWR May 4, 2016
The latest Confidence Report released today by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency and Carbon War Room explores the benefits and challenges of a variety of tractor aerodynamic devices. During the past 20 years, truck manufacturers have done a good job of improving the aerodynamics of sleeper tractors, saving up to 10% in fuel costs. Tractor aerodynamic devices improve fuel efficiency by reducing drag so that it takes less fuel to move down the road, especially at higher speeds. Read More.
