Online fuel-saving calculator for hauliers

Automotive supplier Continental Tyre Group has developed a free online fuel-saving calculator to help hauliers cut operational costs.

Operators can compare all premium competitor products for regional and long-distance applications via the system.

The calculator has been updated to include the recently launched second-generation regional commercial vehicle tyres from Continental along with their cost saving benefits.

By entering the fleet size, the number of miles travelled per year, the average fuel consumption of the selected tyre brand and the fuel cost in pounds per gallon, the tool calculates the annual fuel consumption with the chosen brand and the annual fuel spend.

It also calculates the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in tonnes per year.
