HGV Remapping Service
With fuel being one of the biggest costs in today's modern transport system the industry has spent thousands of man hours looking for ways to help the fleet manager cut operating costs.
One of the simplest and cheapest ways delivering almost immediate payback is remapping the Engine ECU.
By carefully adjusting the calibration parameters within the Engine ECU a typical remap with allow the engine to produce more torque lower in the RPM range enabling higher gears to be selected earlier or maintained for longer before down shifting.
Using the revised gear change strategy fuel savings of between 5% and 20% are often achievable, couple this with your own in house driver training and the majority of your drivers should achieve these savings within the first few trips.
Data collected from various fleets and sources has shown,
Medium power trucks (circa 400 BHP) achieved fuel savings of 10 to 15%.
Higher power trucks (circa 550 BHP) achieved fuel savings of 8 to 12%.
Most modern trucks can be remapped including DAF, IVECO, MAN, MERCEDES, RENAULT, SCANIA and VOLVO.
We can tailor the remap for economy, power or a combination of both.
With typical improvements in MPG of between 10 - 15% the return on investment will be quickly recouped.
Not only do you get a fuel saving your truck could travel further in between fuel stops and achieve improvements in time efficiency as well.
How much could you save ?
Well that obviously depends on the size of your fuel bill but as a rough guide just deduct 12% from your current fuel bill.
You will be amazed at how quickly these savings mount up.
An example -
One medium power truck covering 90,000 miles per year will consume around 11,538 gallons (52,384 litres) of fuel at a typical 7.8 mpg.
With ECU remapping typically the MPG figure will be improved by 12% and this calculation now looks like,
One truck covering 90,000 miles per year will consume around 10,297 gallons (46,750 litres) of fuel at a typical 8.74 mpg.
This is a saving of 5634 litres of fuel or almost Â£7,000 per truck per year. (fuel price calculated at £1.23 exclude VAT)
