After a positive evaluation of our hybrid VOLVO FM9 tractor on a mixture of diesel and LPG was decided to equip two additional vehicles with this technology.
These are two VOLVO FM13-400 tractors with I-Shift gearbox.
The consumption of our test car FM9 meanwhile fell from 30.1 liters to 21.3 liters of diesel/100 km combined with 11.2 liters LPG/100 km. AdBlue consumption dropped from 1.2 liters to 0.69 litres/100 km.
This results in a saving of 0.059 euro/km and an annual saving of 5900 euros per tractor. Moreover, the emission of carbon and fine particles reduced 1/3!
