One trucking firm, Klapec Trucking of Reno, is using cost-cutting measures to lower the cost of fueling trucks. TheDerrick.com features the story.

Methods to lower fuel costs include Auxiliary Power Units (APUs), special additives for diesel fuel, and aerodynamic “wings” on trucks to reduce wind resistance.
