Millbrook validates EconoSpeed fuel and CO2 savings in recent testing

EconoSpeed has been fitted on thousands of Arriva buses across the UK and Europe.

To validate the savings further, Arriva carried out an internal test on one of their buses using settings from the UK and Sweden. The results confirmed an average fuel saving of 3% and an assumed CO2 saving equal to the same amount.

The device can be easily fitted to a variety of vehicles and can be easily adjusted to save even more fuel and CO2, with the added benefits of improved passenger safety and comfort, as well as a reduction in wear and tear.

Independent testing was carried out at the Millbrook Proving Ground, under controlled conditions using a Wrightbus SB 200 Pulsar. This test clearly identified EconoSpeed’s ability to effectively and consistently reduce fuel consumption across most driving conditions and driver styles.

EconoSpeed has settings which are configurable, so the operator can choose the settings they wish to apply to suit the demands of their fleet.

The test evaluated the impact of EconoSpeed under different driving conditions, on different routes and driving styles, combined with a range of configurable settings, demonstrating that EconoSpeed effectively manages the rate of acceleration.

Based on the findings from the evaluation at Millbrook, leads Zeta Automotive to recommend the fitting of EconoSpeed for bus and coach operators in both urban and inter-urban operating conditions.
