Road tested with big rigor

THE FUEL CONSUMPTION TESTS WERE CONDUCTED ON A STRETCH OF HILLS AND FLATLANDS ALONG CANADIAN HIGHWAY IN BEAUTIFUL QUEBEC

The PIT Group calculated the total fuel consumed by the tractors when pulling each semi-trailer and being driven by each of the four drivers. The results of the complete test were expressed as fuel efficiency in miles per US gallon (MPG) and as percentage fuel savings.

Fuel consumption was measured by gravimetrically weighing portable tanks before and after each run. The vehicles were also instrumented with flowmeters and onboard computers.
