Your Biggest Fuel Saver May Be Your Right Foot

Drivers of heavy-duty trucks may boost fuel efficiency by as much as 22 percent by changing their driving and idling habits, according to a survey of almost 700 U.S. truck drivers. The survey results indicate that truck-driver training may have as much of an impact at cutting greenhouse-gas emissions as powertrain improvements and vehicle weight reductions. Such fuel economy improvements may save commercial truck operators more than $12,500 a year per truck, according to a report by San Diego-based SmartDrive Systems, whose products track individual driving habits for fleet operators. After two months of eco-driving training, the average driver surveyed by SmartDrive improved his fuel efficiency to 6.73 miles per gallon from 5.92 miles per gallon, the company said in the report.

The whole idea is to get the biggest bang for the buck, if there are some ways you can get more miles to the gallon, why not pursue them? So the question is how to increase fuel economy on your own truck.


Keeping your highway speed at 55 mph can increase fuel economy as much as 25% compared to 75 mph. Keep in mind that over 50% of the energy required to move a vehicle down the road is spent overcoming aerodynamic drag.

The faster you drive the more air you will have to push out of the way. And this dramatically increases rolling resistance. Consequently, the fuel economy decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph because of the increase in air resistance.

As a rule of thumb you can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $.21 per gallon for fuel.

The most common mistake by new and experienced drivers alike is the acceleration procedure. Discipline and consistency are so important if you want to increase fuel economy.
