Scania Bus - Fuel Efficiency Project

BACKGROUND

Biotechnix installed the Biotechnix Fuel System on this Scania Bus on 15th March 2011.
The bus is powered by a 12 Litre 6 cylinder diesel engine. It is used for tourist passenger work with an average daily travel of 170 kilometres.

OBJECTIVES

  • To compare the improvement in diesel fuel consumption after installing the Biotechnix Fuel System with the 3 months prior to installing the Biotechnix Fuel System. 

RESULTS

  • At the end of the project the overall fuel saving across the eleven months (63,760 kms) was 10%. This equates to 2,693 litres of fuel saved per year. 
  • Using a fuel cost of $1.45 per litre this translates into a projected saving of $3,905 per year or $7,810 over a 2 year period. 
  • Carbon emissions were reduced by 605kg per month or approximately 7.2 tonnes per year.
