Allison Transmission announces FuelSense 2.0 with DynActive Shifting

Allison Transmission has announced FuelSense 2.0 featuring DynActive Shifting, which the company says will deliver up to 6% additional fuel savings beyond its original FuelSense software. Introduced in March 2014, Allison’s FuelSense packages of software and electronic components were introduced to provide fuel economy improvements. Through a set of proprietary software enhancements, the new FuelSense 2.0 technology uses DynActive Shifting to provide an infinitely variable combination of shift points. FuelSense 2.0 uses a learning algorithm to continuously find the ideal balance of fuel economy and performance, the company explained.

According to the company, FuelSense 2.0 provides the most value to applications with heavy start-stop needs, such as city bus, school bus, refuse, construction and distribution. With nearly 3 million test miles in customer fleets representing a variety of duty-cycles, the fleets have experienced fuel economy gains up to 6%, the company said, estimating per vehicle savings of $300 to $900 annually based on application, annual mileage and fuel price.

“This latest technology further reduces fuel consumption in all segments of a vehicle’s duty-cycle,” said Heidi Schutte, vice president of marketing and sales for the Americas with Allison Transmission. “FuelSense 2.0 offers increased specification flexibility and delivers the best economic value to our customers.”

Fuel Sense is available in three packages: FuelSense 2.0, FuelSense 2.0 Plus and FuelSense 2.0 Max. All three include DynActive Shifting. FuelSense 2.0 Plus and Max include improved Neutral at Stop. FuelSense 2.0 Max includes enhanced Acceleration Rate Management.

FuelSense 2.0 packages will be available beginning in mid-April. Currently, aftermarket installation of FuelSense 2.0 is not allowed in California or the CARB Heavy-Duty Opt-in states of Maine, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
