CV Show 2012: Remapping to help boost fuel economy

CMS SupaTrak, which has been involved in telematics, tracking, fleet management and driver coaching since 1993, has launched the latest weapon in its armoury to help operators in their battle to reduce fuel consumption: EcoMap.

Working with CV manufacturers, CMS SupaTrak has developed the system to remap engine management units to maximise fuel economy in a vehicle’s particular application. It claims this can improve economy by up to 11% on the OEM’s standard mapping.

CMS SupaTrak recommends making other interventions to improve economy before remapping, but reports one waste operator is seeing fuel efficiency gains of around 15% using the full range of its products.
