Now we come to the answer to the question that started it all: How fuel efficient can a new truck driver be?
As we saw in the first half of the Fuel Efficiency Faceoff drive pitting Super Spec’er Joel Morrow against CDL-newbie Jason Morgan, handing a new driver the keys to a hyper fuel-efficient truck doesn’t immediately translate into record setting fuel savings. There is still a lot of skill and expertise that a driver brings to the truck.
Yet, with Adaptive Cruise Control figured out and a bit more comfortable behind the seat—can Jason push his fuel efficiency numbers past Joel Morrow, who is working the heck out of the 1996 Volvo VN truck?
It’s neck and neck as the trucks take off from the Volvo Trucks Customer Center and head back for to North Carolina to the finish line.
