    Fuel Economy: Focus for New Truck Models at MATS 2013

    "Fuel Economy" dominates the new truck roll outs at Mid-America Trucking Show, March 21-23, 2013 at Kentucky Expo Center. Take a look at Kenworth's “flagship” highway tractor, the T680, showing truckers how to maximize the fuel efficiency of their big rigs. See report here.

    Fuel economy is always a buzz word for truckers. So much of our income goes into the tank. Being from Montana, I have to ask how does this new design do in the mountains? Many trucks do well on the flats, but fall on their faces in the high country.

    Hah! Take that. Good question. I'd rather have old truck that i am so damn sure very good in fuel efficiency than new design which pumps the tank out like crazy
