Yokohama Updates Online Fuel Savings Calculator


Yokohama Tire Corporation has updated its web-based Fuel Savings Calculator to make it more beneficial to the trucking industry, said Rick Phillips, Yokohama director of commercial sales. “We want to show fleets how they can save money with Yokohama fuel- efficient products and the new features we’ve added to the Yokohama Fuel Savings Calculator will do just that,” he said.


The updates include more data points on Yokohama tires, as well as competitor tires, to show users expanded tire comparisons. A print function also has been added.


Savings are shown in three ways: annual fuel savings per truck, annual fuel savings for fleet, and annual gallons of fuel saved.


According to Phillips, the Fuel Savings Calculator not only saves truckers money, but also has a green benefit because it shows the total carbon footprint reduction of Yokohama tires compared to its competitors.


“It’s important for fleets to see how the right choice of tires can dramatically reduce the carbon impact on the environment,” Phillips said. “For example, one of our tires saved more than 2,000 pounds of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere. It’s another example of our commitment to produce environmentally-sound products.”
