Detailed theoretical and modeling analysis
combined with SVE data predicts fuel consumption savings through piston friction reduction to be in the range of 3.0-4.5% at full load (stationary engine applications), up to 9% under urban traffic driving conditions (Class 7 or 8 truck), and 27% at idle
(very important operating condition since often truck engines are left idling for hours). The overall RLE fuel economy benefit will double the profit margin of the Class 7 and 8 truck operator.
