Scania Prime Mover - Fuel Efficiency & Emissions Control

BACKGROUND

Biotechnix installed the Biotechnix Fuel System on this Scania truck on 9th October 2009.
The truck is powered by a 16 Litre V8 diesel engine.

OBJECTIVES

  • To compare the improvement in diesel fuel consumption after installing the Biotechnix Fuel System with the baseline established by the Scania Calculator prior to installation. 

RESULTS

  • At the end of the project the overall fuel saving across the nine months (174,783 kms) was 9%. This equates to 11,126 litres of fuel saved per year. 
  • Using a fuel cost of $1.45 per litre this translates into a projected saving of $16,135 per year or $32,270 over a 2 year period. 
  • Carbon emissions were reduced by 2.5 tonnes per month or approximately 30 tonnes per year.
