With no end in sight for the soaring cost of fuel it becomes increasing important that all of the systems and subsystems on your buses are running as efficiently as possible. Some fuel economy enhancers include
- Making sure your A/C system is leak free and properly charged, An undercharged Air Conditioning system will run the A/C compressor longer and the horsepower drain the compressor places on the engine robs fuel economy.
- Upgrade to the latest Freon mixtures. Converting your system to run the newer Freon mix will make your system more efficient, in addition the newer Freon will be more economical to purchase and use
- Convert your system to an all electric A/C system. Today’s electric systems use high efficiency alternators and eliminate the parasitic load of the reciprocating compressor from the engine which increases fuel economy and reduces noise pollution.
