The new FHs, which were supplied by Crossroads at Normanton, have been specified with Volvo’s latest fuel saving technology, including the I-Shift gearbox with Long-Haul & Fuel Economy+ software and I-See.

I-See uses GPS positioning to memorise roads and gradients and share this information, via central data storage, with other trucks, to enable I-Shift’s gear changes to be optimised for fuel economy. Volvo Trucks claims fuel savings of up to 5% with I-See.

Brian Yeardley Continental Ltd. Managing Director Kevin Hopper says that he took the decision to conduct the fuel trial with Euro-5 vehicles as the company needs to place an order for trucks in the autumn, prior to the legislated requirement for Euro-6 compliance.

Kevin reports that the current fleet fuel average of all makes operated is 9.5mpg, a figure the new FHs need to improve on to secure future business with Brian Yeardley Continental Ltd.
