New Zealand driver wins on-road category of the Volvo Trucks Fuelwatch Challenge – Correction to story

In News, Volvo1 MinuteBy NZ Trucking magazineOctober 2, 2017

Volvo Trucks has advised their original press release contained an incorrect fuel consumption figure in the hypothetical ‘real-life context‘ example.

Translated into a real-life context, the competition margins offer significant cost saving potential. For instance, during an average long haul operation of 150,000 kilometres, the on-road fuel efficiency margins could result in 5000 fewer litres being used per truck each year.

The original press release had a figure of 46,500 litres.
