Volvo FH Fuel Efficiency

Maximum returns

Fuel efficiency is about staying in control of your fuel costs and your environmental footprint. But first and foremost, it’s about making sure you get the most out of every drop. Don’t compromise on your productivity. With the Volvo FH, you can choose from a wide range of offers to tailor your ideal solution. Our powertrains are engineered to save fuel – while delivering high performance. Beyond that, there are even more solutions available for your Volvo FH that are designed to make your fuel bills drop even further. 

Engines that deliver

All our diesel engines have been meticulously engineered to save fuel – without compromising performance. They offer excellent driveability and let you stay in top gear even through climbs to keep up speed and save fuel.

Leader in fuel efficiency

The Volvo diesel engines, known for fuel efficiency, are now made even more efficient. Cylinder liners and scrapper rings with less friction, an improved turbocharger and an Engine Management System with new software adds to the improved fuel efficiency. 

Volvo Torque Assist (Euro 5)

Provides the driver with enough torque to keep the speed adding a controlled torque delta to optimise the acceleration. The smart sensors consider the topography. The driver will experience enough torque even under full uphill conditions. The big advantage; fuel saving up to 3% when pedal driving.

I-See – watch your fuel bills drop

I-See is a cruise control that understands your routes to save fuel. It uses information about the topography to manage speed and gear changes in the most fuel-efficient way.

Ratio for your assignments

The rear axle is the last link in an efficient chain. By equipping our rear axle with the right ratio for long haul, it works in perfect harmony with the engine and transmission. The result? Lower revs. A more comfortable drive. And improved fuel efficiency.

Steady speed with I-Cruise

Intelligent cruise control. I-Cruise adjusts your speed to keep fuel consumption down. This not only helps towards your productivity by maintaining a high average speed. It also contributes to a safer, more comfortable drive.
