Improve the Efficiency of Your Fleet with Truck Accessories

By Robert Vadra Subscribe to RSS | July 16th 2012 | Views:

Every fleet manager wants to maximize the fuel efficiency of his or her fleet of cars or trucks, particularly as gas prices continue to climb. Engine size and miles per gallon (MPG) will undoubtedly feature near the top of the list of criteria when choosing the right cars or trucks for a commercial fleet. However, many managers seem to forget that optimum fuel efficiency is only achievable with the right car or truck accessories. The smallest parts of your vehicle can have a big impact when it comes to cost-savings. From replacing dirty air filters through to installing a free-flow exhaust system, investing in new car or truck accessories can pay dividends in fuel economy.

By purchasing something as small as a tire gauge for each of your drivers, you can deliver substantial savings over the course of a year. Driving on tires that are under-inflated leads to a reduction in MPG. This results from an increase in the resistance when the tires rotate against the road surface. If your drivers check their tire pressures on a regular basis and keep them within the manufacturer’s recommended limits, they will be well on their way to achieving maximum fuel economy.

While custom wheels may appear to be a smart addition to your trucks, particularly if they need to travel over rough terrain, wider tires can increase road resistance and reduce MPG. If your fleet of trucks covers long distances, it may be more economical to retain the original tires and avoid custom wheels.

Blocked air filters impede the functioning of the engine. By replacing air filters on a regular basis, you can ensure that optimal engine function is achieved, contributing to overall fuel efficiency. In fuel injection engines, performance can also be enhanced by installing a cold air intake system. By drawing in cold air, rather than recycling the warm air from the engine compartment, the efficiency of a fuel injection engine can be improved, providing an increase in MPG.

If you run a fleet of pickup trucks, you can save on fuel consumption by ensuring that drivers distribute their loads in the most aerodynamic manner. By kitting your trucks out with commercial accessories, such as truck bed liners and Tonneau covers, you can ensure that resistance and drag are kept to a minimum, boosting MPG.

Some of the improvements to fuel consumption made by upgrading your fleet accessories may seem small. However, when you multiply these savings by the mileage undertaken across your whole fleet of cars or trucks during the year, you will see that even small savings can soon mount up.
