The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) has identified 10 actions to help fleets achieve 10+ mpg in over the highway operations.
One gallon of diesel cost an average of $3.13 in the US last month, an increase of 64 cents compared to April 2020. It has only gotten higher in May. Tire rolling resistance, always top-of-mind with tire R&D experts, always gets more attention from trucking fleets when fuel prices go up.
Three main factors impact the rolling resistance in a tire: tread compounding, tread pattern design and tire structure. Tests show over 50% of the rolling resistance of a tire is generated from the tread and belt package; as such, many research hours are spent to study and improve these components.
The “rolling resistance” of a tire is defined as the physical drag a tire exhibits while in motion (rolling). This drag is measured as a force. Obviously, the more drag, the more fuel used.
