RETHINK THE TANK It’s Time for a New Conversation About Fuel

FUEL EFFICIENCY FUNDAMENTALS

Fuel is a big cost driver—at any price point. So reducing fuel consumption builds your bottom line. But even bigger gains can come from increasing fuel efficiency. When you do more work with the fuel you burn, you position your business for profitable growth.

Five factors affect fuel efficiency:

  1. idle time,
  2. operator technique,
  3. equipment selection,
  4. technology
  5. jobsite setup.

Find information about the each of these factors here—and start recovering more profit from every tank.

OPERATOR TECHNIQUE

Research shows that a skilled operator can use 10-12% less fuel every day than an unskilled one. In addition to cutting fuel costs, the right operator can also enhance safety, improve productivity and extend component life. That’s probably why when Caterpillar asked a group of heavy construction professionals to identify their biggest source of competitive advantage, more than 30% said skilled operators.
