Trailer-Body Builders reports that Detroit Diesel Corporation has announced new software to enhance the fuel economy of EPA ’07 Series 60 engines.
According to the article, testing of the series 60s engines has shown that particle filters are staying cleaner. Advancements in the regeneration software can improve the fuel efficiency of the engines up to 2.5 percent.
That 2.5 percent improvement could not come at a better time, with diesel fuel prices putting the squeeze on truckers and trucking companies. Any fuel consumption improvement is money saved.
