Yokohama Tire Corp. recently updated its interactive, web-based Fuel Savings Calculator to make it more beneficial in helping commercial fleet owners and truckers improve their fuel savings.
“We want to show fleets how they can save money with Yokohama fuel-efficient products and the new features we’ve added to the Yokohama Fuel Savings Calculator will do just that,” said Rick Phillips, Yokohama director of commercial sales.
The Yokohama Fuel Savings Calculator is available at www.yokohamatire.com/fuel_calculator/.
“The updates include more data points on Yokohama tires, as well as our competitor tires to allow users expanded comparisons of our fuel-efficient tires, including our Zenvironment line, against others,” said Phillips. “Plus, we’ve added a print functionality that fleet owners have asked for.”
The savings are shown in three ways: annual fuel savings per truck, annual fuel savings for fleet and annual gallons of fuel saved. According to Phillips, the Fuel Savings also has a ‘green’ benefit because it shows the total carbon footprint reduction of Yokohama tires compared to competitors.
“It’s important for fleets to see how the right choice of tires can dramatically reduce the carbon impact on the environment,” Phillips said. “For example, one of our tires saved more than 2,000 pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.”
Yokohama Tire Corp. is the North American manufacturing and marketing arm of Tokyo-based The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., a global tire manufacturing and sales company.
