It is not uncommon for fleets with identically spec’ ed trucks to see as much as a 25% (5.0 vs. 6.7 mpg) in fuel consumption variance between the worst and best drivers.” • The manufacturer of Kenworth® and Peterbilt® trucks (Paccar) agrees. “The driver remains the most important factor for fuel economy.” Paccar cites studies that demonstrate how an experienced driver, utilizing the proper techniques, can be up to 35% more fuel efficient than an untrained driver. “While training programs can assist drivers with progressive shifting, braking and acceleration, basic fuel consumption awareness is usually the first significant step to realizing cost savings.”
