Most OTR drivers boast about how many miles they can go between fills, especially the owner/operators.
No driver likes crawling up a hill, its just the nature off hauling 60K lbs.
I see a potential market for short haul and local companies. Their drivers could use some incentive and training to save fuel.
OTOH with deliveries, time is money.


I can't understand why my MPG's are so low..........
21,000lb, 41' Toy Haulers are rough on FE!

Yes, but without context provided by a visual recording, the ability to make an intelligent judgment is limited, as well as the ability to provide a teaching opportunity to the driver.
