EERE Success Story—SuperTruck Initiative Partner Improves Class 8 Truck Efficiency by 115%

With help from the Energy Department, Class 8 trucks recently hit a record of 12 miles per gallon (mpg) freight efficiency. This milestone is actually a 115% increase in freight efficiency (which includes both fuel used and weight hauled) over typical Class 8 trucks, which typically average 5.8 miles to the gallon!  As Class 8 trucks haul as much as 80% of the nation’s goods, improving their efficiency is essential to increasing energy security and reducing carbon pollution.
