How much could you save?
Tests with Australian fleets proved Bridgestone Ecopia M749 drive and R109 trailer truck tyres saved up to 6%^ fuel when compared to conventional drive and trailer tyres. For a fleet with an annual fuel expenditure of $10 million this equates to a fuel saving of $600,000 per annum. Independent testing under highly controlled conditions measured fuel savings of 9.6%* – providing further proof of the fuel savings available to transport operators.
†Figures based on rolling resistance measurements of Bridgestone premium product and Bridgestone Ecopia then correlated to fuel savings using rolling resistance quotients calculated from Secrets of Better Fuel Economy, published by Cummins in 2006. Actual fuel consumption savings will depend on factors such as vehicle configuration, load, speed and driving style.

^Fleet fuel consumption test conducted in 2012 on Kenworth T404SAR prime mover and B-Double bulk tankers. Actual fuel consumption savings will depend on factors such as vehicle configuration, load, speed and driving style. *Independently tested by Vipac Engineers & Scientists Ltd in strictly controlled conditions at AARC proving ground. Vehicle was a B-Double in normal loaded condition. Total cost saving estimate based on average fleet fuel expenditure of $10,000,000.
