Volvo Fuel Super Truck
The first B-double concept truck in the world. This truck was nearly two years in the making and is a testament to Australian ingenuity and engineering skills, along with the great benefits gained from the partnership of Swedish and local engineering teams.
The truck is designed to run on the least amount of diesel possible, without compromising productivity or performance. With fuel accounting for one-third of operator costs, the industry is looking for answers to the problem of how to maximise fuel efficiency while still getting the job done. Under rigorous testing, the Australian trials of the Volvo Fuel Super Truck showed a gain in fuel efficiency of 20 per cent over the base line FH16, which itself is well known in the market for its leading fuel efficiency.

An airflow package can improve your fuel economy by as much as 8%. It reduces turbulence, minimises air resistance and deflects wind away from the trailer. As well as saving fuel and money, it also reduces CO2 emissions, which is great for the environment.
