New Test for fuel efficiency

“The government’s guidelines for fuel efficiency in HGV fleets, do not go far enough to encourage haulage companies to adopt industry best practice and reduce their fuel bills”, says Test, a new independent ‘audit’ service.

According to the Transport Efficiency Savings Toolkit (Test), the average truck spends almost one working week a year stuck in traffic, with the problem likely to get worse before it gets better, due to; rising oil prices, EU working time regulations and increasing demands for environmentally-friendlier vehicles.

Test is the brainchild of Keyfuels and Key3 Partners, who say that its aim is to bring the government’s Freight Best Practice guidelines to life, through a root and branch audit of fuel efficiency across thousands of vehicles.

Simon Clifford, sales and marketing director at Keyfuels said: “The government’s Best Practice Guidelines provides excellent advice, but it is too generic for many smaller and medium sized businesses.”
