Fuel consumption of a timber truck trailer combination



Fuel consumption of a timber truck trailer combination



Metsatehon Tiedotus, Finland (395): 14



A specially designed drive analyser was used to measure the fuel consumption of a 4-axle, Scania R142H 8x2 Intercooler with a 3-axle trailer with various loads and on various road conditions. Mean fuel consumption per turn was 57 litres per 100 km when the av. measured transport distance was 37 km. Fuel consumption when driving was 48 litres per 100 km and when loading and unloading was 9 litres per 100 km.
