Engine Impact of Idling

  1. 1. August 21, 2012
  2. 2. Beyond EPA 2013 - Evolution of Technology NOx, PM CO2 thru Fuel Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction Diesel Particulate Filter OBD Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation Electronic Fuel Systems Aftercooling
  3. 3. Rock Solid RulesIdle time is costly! Every HOUR of idle time can decrease fuel efficiency by 1%.Less Idling decreases fuel consumption resulting in less emissions (GHG), and a smaller carbon footprint.Idling increases maintenance and reduces component durability.
  4. 4. Cost of Engine Idling – Fuel Consumption Idle time can significantly affect the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Overall, Up to 10% impact on MPG. The vehicle uses the most diesel fuel when the engine runs and the truck doesn’t move. Idle/PTO fuel consumption increases exponentially with engine speed. Almost double with SCR Engines. Idle/PTO Fuel Consumption Engine Speed RPM Average Fuel Consumption (Gal/Hr) 650 ~0.5 1000 ~1.0 1200 ~1.5 When idling is necessary to maintain cab/bunk compartment temperatures, select the lowest idle speed possible to maintain cab heat. Select the lowest idle speed possible to maintain engine temperature of 140 F Degree in winter operation.
  5. 5. Cost of Engine Idling – Maintenance AFTERTREATMENT – Idling results in inefficient combustion, increasing your soot-load downstream into your AFTERTREATMENT. – AFTERTREATMENT plugs; requiring a REGENERATION; buring MORE diesel fuel to clean DPF of soot-load. – Increased regenerations decreases the life of the catalyst filters. $1,500-2,000/each. – Today You pay in fuel THREE times for extra idling. ENGINE FAN – If fan is engaged during idling, it results in additional fuel consumption. – Creates a dust-storm under the hood, reducing air-cleaner life AND engine life. – Reduces Fan Clutch life for when you really need it – to cool down the engine.
  6. 6. Cost of Engine Idling – Durability While the engine is running, You are wearing-out all of these components prematurely: – Air-compressor – Fan Clutch – Belts and Idler Pulleys – Alternator – Water Pump – Turbo (very expensive turbo today) – Injectors (thru increased regenerations) – Aftertreatment Exhaust System, and components – Air Intake system: Air cleaners, EGR Valves –Every part on the engine……
  7. 7. How do I reduce Idling?•Shut it off !•Utilize Electronic Engine Controls•Auxiliary Heaters •Diesel Fired Heaters; set on timer •Electric Heaters via Shorepower •DC Battery Power Units Heat/AC •APU’s for Hotel loads•Don’t bump-up Idle speed.
  8. 8. Programmable Engine Features Idle Shutdown Idle Shutdown in PTO Idle Shutdown Override Ambient Temperature Shutdown Override Driver Reward
  9. 9. How do I manage Idling?You can’t manage anything without an effective means to measure it.You can’t change behaviors unless you have good data to validate your goals.

  12. 12. Summary….You do the math…..Every Drop of fuel saved goes right to the bottom-line $ $.You pay three times in fuel burned for Idling today.Reduce Green-House Gases.Reduce Maintenance Costs.
  13. 13. The days of casual Idling are over…..
