Kenworth Truck Co. has produced the latest version of its guide to assist fleets and owner-operators interested in exploring ways to improve fuel economy. Kenworth says its “Push Less Air Pull More Profit” guide emphasizes the importance of spec’ing trucks for aerodynamics and fuel economy.

The newly updated, four-page guide provides spec’ing tips, including the use of full roof and chassis fairings, side extenders and under-hood air cleaners, in addition to careful selection of wheelbase and fifth-wheel setting to ensure the optimal trailer gap.

Available as a .pdf file for electronic download and printing from Kenworth’s home page (, the Kenworth guide also offers driver tips and maintenance steps to help enhance fuel economy.
