OTTAWA, Ont. – FleetSmart has released its fuel efficiency benchmarking survey, which looked at 42 Canadian fleets operating a total of 9,441 power units. The average equipment age across all fleets was of 3.7 years.

The average fuel efficiency of the fleets was 7.15 mpg (miles per gallon) in 1999.

Fleets operating B-trains were much lower averaging only 4.9 mpg.

The best year-round fuel efficiency of any fleet was 8.5 mpg with the top firms operating mainly in southern Ontario.

The survey concludes that Canada’s trucking industry continues to improve its fuel efficiency.

Half of the fleets reported an annual fuel efficiency of 7 mpg or better. n
