Aeroz America installed a wind-deflecting Fuelscoop on the cab roof a Hino 258 box delivery truck, owned by AllPro Distributors of Alabaster, Ala. After a three-month evaluation of fuel consumption and overall performance, Mike Hess, logistic manager for AllPro Distributors, noted improved handling and decreased fuel consumption.
A report was issued stating; “the overall ride of this truck is now considerably smoother than our other trucks that do not have the Fuelcoop installed. In addition, the average fuel consumption on this truck went from 8.47mpg to 10.11mpg, an improvement of 19.4% that can only be attributed to the FuelScoop”.
Aeroz Products has been involved in the development, manufacturing, and distribution of medium-duty commercial truck aerodynamics since 1983, during which time their products have saved customers tens of millions of dollars in reduced fuel and maintenance costs.
Fuelscoop is now secured to the factory mount points by means of a color-matched molded mounting base. Fuelscoop is manufactured in a computer matched gelcoat color. Fuelscoop air deflectors are available in heights of 32- and 40-inches.
Additionally, a Fuelscoop adds to the performance of a cone-type device fitted to a truck body or semi-trailer by ensuring that the underside of the cone is not able to deflect the airflow down behind the truck cab.
