Pays for itself quickly
Each hour the DC Comfort System is in use the operator saves approximately 1 gallon of fuel because it’s many times more efficient than a large idling diesel engine.
The typical 6-cylinder truck engine idles at 1,000 RPMs roughly 8 hours a day for 300 days a year. At $3 per gallon of diesel fuel, that’s $7,200 annually, in fuel costs alone. Not to mention reduction in maintenance costs and extended engine life.
The entire Class 8 over the road industry struggles with driver turnover. The DC Comfort System helps to keep the operator comfortable during rest stops and enhances the driver experience.
