Eco Flaps + Eco Caps (28-ft Doubles)View Full Report
MVT Solutions CertifiedTM testing found Eco Flaps + Eco Caps saved 4.45 gal/1000 miles (3.90%) on the truck and 28-ft double trailer configuration. The trailer was equipped with skirts. Based on 125,000 miles travelled annually, savings equate to 557 gallons per year. At $2.551 per gallon (2020 average retail price of diesel) this equates to $1,420 in fuel savings per year. During fleet calculations, MVTS found the long trailer life in the 28-ft double LTL sector led to the product paying for itself many times over, as well as summing to substantial profits over the life of the trailers. The 28-ft double trailer configuration consisted of eight (8) Eco Flap and Eco Cap positions, which contributed to experiencing greater fuel savings than found with single trailer tests that only included four (4) positions.
Installation and removal of the Eco Cap wheel caps was simple, fast, and required no tools. Installation required less than 5 seconds and removal required approximately 10 seconds. Both times could be improved with practice.
