KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth Truck Company has launched a fuel economy awareness program to assist fleets and owner/operators interested in improving their efficiency.
To kick off the program, Kenworth has produced a comprehensive white paper on fuel economy and created a “Dynamics of Fuel Efficiency” Web site link at www.kenworth.com. Kenworth’s 14-page white paper may be downloaded electronically from the new Web feature.
The paper explores six major areas: aerodynamics, component spec’ing, advanced technology, route management, driver behavior, and proper maintenance. The component spec’ing section offers a tire tips section, courtesy of Bridgestone.
“Kenworth’s new white paper provides useful information for fleets and owner-operators looking to save money by boosting fuel economy and controlling operating costs,” says Ed Caudill, Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice-president.
