Title:

Fuel Economy With New Legislation

Description:

Compared to light-duty vehicles like vans, SUVs, and pick-up trucks, medium and heavy-duty trucks get terrible fuel economy. The heavier trucks get about a third to half as much mileage per gallon. However, legislation in this 2015 may potentially improve that issue while also reducing the output of harmful emissions. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Fuel Economy With New Legislation


1
Fuel Economy With New Legislation
2
Compared to light-duty vehicles like vans, SUVs,
and pick-up trucks, medium and heavy-duty trucks
get terrible fuel economy.
3
The heavier trucks get about a third to half as
much mileage per gallon.
4
However, legislation in this 2015 may
potentially improve that issue while also
reducing the output of harmful emissions.
5
Fuel Economy in Medium and Heavy Trucks
6
The new legislation targets vehicle models in the
range of the years 2021 to 2027.
7
The Environmental Protection Agency and the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
have brought together the potential standards
with the help of suggestions from a few
third-party organizations.
8
While on the highway, I only see black smokes
from two types of vehicles the larger 18-wheeler
types and older model vehicles that should have
already been retired.
9
It seems nice that environmental laws will catch
up with legislation already made for light-duty
trucks.
10
Even if it might require an investment ahead of
time, those who purchase medium and heavy-duty
trucks will benefit in the fuel economy.
11
Thus, the developing laws will help companies
save currency in the long run.
12
The Obama administration initially started the
movement for better fuel economy in heavier
trucks.
13
Discussing politics does not make good table
talk, but I support the efforts notion.
14
As I understand the idea currently in 2015, the
process has gone through two phases so far.
15
Phase One began in 2011.
16
Phase Two of the standards should occur in 2016.
17
Volvo has already dedicated itself to engine
designs for that certain Phase.
18
Recognition that incompatibilities will likely
arise brings even more interested third-parties
into the discussions.
19
Acceptance of the future standards will
expectedly arrive in a sluggish manner.
20
That includes a reason why the legislation will
affect medium and heavy duty trucks in 2021 to
2027.
21
Requiring upgrades earlier than that would meet
resistance.
22
Fuel Economy with Volvo
23
In its own plans, Volvo has released a new
technology that helps fuel economy.
24
The vehicle manufacturer names its technique
Adaptive Loading.
25
It controls where most of the weight resides on
a trucks tires, depending on which rubber meets
the most weight.
26
The efficiency results in less degradation of
the tires, which means fewer replacements, and
the mileage per gallon ratio improves to as much
as 9 MPG.
27
Feedback from companies testing the technology
have given the feature high regard.
28
So far, the potential standards appear as a
decent beginning.
29
Not only will greenhouse gases become reduced,
but diesel fuel will become longer lasting for
newer vehicle models.
30
In a world where news media prefer bad reports,
this particular advancement in fuel economy rings
like beautiful music.
