The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) released its in-depth report on Run on Less Regional, a fuel-economy demonstration that showed how Class 8 tractors — both diesel and CNG — and trailers can use a variety of technologies to achieve the best fuel economy possible in a variety of regional haul applications. Also included are reports on how these duty cycles would work in battery electric truck and hydrogen fuel cell trucks.
