How to save on fuel this winter...

Truck maintenance is important to keep trucks up and running but did you know that regularly maintaining your pickups also offers great benefits in fuel economy? There are many technologies and techniques for fleet maintenance that can help increase fuel efficiency up to 10%.

Here are some tips that can help you save this winter:

Make sure that your truck’s tires have adequate thread depth and air pressure.
   Keeping tires properly inflated alone can increase gas mileage by 3%
Regularly replace clogged air filters
Park in warmer areas to increase the initial temperature of your pickup’s engine
Use the recommended grade of motor oil
Combine trips whenever possible to avoid driving with a cold engine
Remove accessories that increase wind resistance
Try a more efficient vehicle. ½ ton pickups allow greater opportunity for fuel
    savings and efficiency.

Applying techniques that support increased measures for fuel efficiency offer remarkable savings and allow more room for the optimization of your fleet with transferable truck bodies! Fleetwest has many options for ½ ton configurations. The Durashell 145 and 175 model is made of a lightweight fiberglass composite and is 100% transferable.
