An ALT fleet customer wanted to test the cost-effectiveness of using Motor Silk®. In order to determine whether average fuel economy for its fleet improved after treatment with Motor Silk®, the company set up a 3 month test. The fleet used for the test consisted of over 6,100 delivery and passenger vehicles with gasoline engines.
The company routinely records maintenance, miles driven and gas consumed by each vehicle in its fleet. To establish a baseline average fuel economy for comparison, the company used its records for the test vehicles during the same 3 month period of the previous year. To minimize the effect of other factors that could influence the results, the company used the same vehicles and maintenance routines during the test period. The test vehicles were treated with Motor Silk® according to the standard instructions for use.
