pozzoni logistics test

pozzoni logistics

Autotransporti Pozzoni Enrico & C. SAS is a logistic company with a serious environmental approach. The owner and manager Enrico Pozzoni contacted Eco Energy Italia and inquired if it was possible to test Lite White Diesel over a period of time in one of the company’s trucks.

The truck chosen for the purpose was a 1999 model Renault type VI 11GTA1 470 ADR with a mileage of 420 000 km. The truck has been and is operating the route between Lecco and Mondena regularly with the same driver, enabling a fairly reliable fuel consumption calculation to compare the two fuels.

The test started on March 3rd 2007 and is ongoing

The test has the following objectives

  • Compare fuel consumption between diesel and Lite White Diesel
  • Comparison of emission analysis between diesel and Lite White Diesel
  • Gain experience with long time use of Lite White Diesel with regards to reliability, stability and impact on the vehicle’s maintenance schedule
  • Detect by means of the driver’s perception any change in the truck’s performance

Methods of analysis

  • Consumption: Record all fuelling volumes against mileage
  • Emission analysis: Opacimeter test carried out by the local Renault Garage
