Truck on the road

Fuel optimization solution is helping boost MPG by 19%.

Rochester, New York – July 21, 2016 — Vnomics Corp., providers of advanced analytics solutions that enable fleets to improve driver and vehicle performance in real-time, today announced that Mike Clarke, an owner-operator with a local & long distance moving company, is realizing a 19% improvement in fuel economy by using its fuel optimization solution for in-cab coaching.

“I participated in a trial of Vnomics for one of my large customers,” said Mike Clarke. “It wasn’t long before I realized that I wasn’t always shifting my 2001 Peterbilt in the most efficient way, that I needed to shift more effectively to operate at a lower engine RPM. The result was a dramatic 19 percent increase in fuel economy, from about 6.0 to 7.2 MPG.

“After almost 40 years as a truck driver I never thought I would learn anything new about efficient driving,” added Clarke, “but with Vnomics I’m getting performance out of my truck I never thought was possible. Changing old habits is hard but Vnomics makes sure I stay on top of things and it saves me money, which is noticeable when I’m buying fuel.”

“Mike is a perfect example of what proper shifting and throttle control can do for fuel mileage,” said Mari McGowan, director of market development for Vnomics.  “He was so impressed he decided to purchase it himself. A 19% savings is one of the best we’ve seen. Our customers typically achieve 3-10% fleet wide savings. His improvements show that empowering drivers through real-time driver coaching and precise, comprehensive fuel use analytics affects the bottom line considerably.”
