Kenworth Truck Co. has produced a free guide to help fleets and owner-operators improve fuel economy. Kenworth’s “Push Less Air Pull More Profit” guide emphasizes the importance of spec’ing for enhanced aerodynamics and fuel economy.
The new four-page guide’s spec’ing tips include the use of full roof and chassis fairings, side extenders and under-hood air cleaners, in addition to ensuring optimal trailer gap through careful selection of wheelbase and fifth-wheel settings. The illustrated guide, which also offers driver tips and proper maintenance steps, can be found at www.kenworth.com.
Kenworth’s aerodynamic models include the standard-cab T600 and the wide-cab T2000 model designed for team drivers.
