IMPACT OF IDLING ON FUEL COSTS

Based on: Expected Ownership of 5 years | Annual Operating Hours of 2000 | Average Fuel Costs: $1.60/L | Fuel Burned during Idle 3.7L/Hr.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH AN EXTRA $14K?

That’s how much fuel you could throw away in a five-year period if just one machine racks up too much idle time. And that doesn’t include all the other costs you’re incurring—wasted warranty hours, extra maintenance, declining resale value and more. See the numbers, get the facts and start cutting idle time and costs.

TIPS FOR REDUCING IDLE TIME

Limit idle time at shutoff.  Older engines need 2 minutes, newer engines almost none.

Turn off trucks that are waiting more than 5 minutes to load or unload.

Restrict morning warm-ups to 3 to 5 minutes.

Turn off equipment during lunch time, breaks and other periods when not in use.

Use the automatic shutdown feature when available.

Anticipate the mobile requirements of other equipment and position the inactive machine where it won't impede the movement of the other units.

It adds up fast.. See how excess idling drives up fuel costs for an owner who logs 2000 hours per year for five years.
