Trucker finds way to save $50 per day in fuel costs!

Tony McIntyre is a seasoned owner/operator, driving his 2002 Columbia Freightliner “Big Rig” for an innovative transportation company located in Georgia. Since he personally pays for each fillup at the pump, he says, “I have been very concerned about the rising cost of fuel. I have been trying all kinds of things to keep my fuel costs down.”

If “necessity is the mother of invention”, high diesel fuel prices are no doubt the incentive to try just about anything. McIntyre decided to take a chance on a simple air-handling device called the VortexValve?. He says, “It was easy to install and the results were instant”.

So what were his results? Like other truckers, McIntyre keeps a regular log of his fuel consumption and miles he drives. From there he is able to calculate his mileage and fuel costs. At today’s high fuel prices (more than $3.00 per gallon for diesel), McIntyre was delighted to see the results he obtained with his VortexValve?. “I have seen an increase of a half mile to one mile per gallon. My previous mileage ranged from 6.25-7.0. With the VortexValve? my mileage has ranged from 7.15 to 8.54″.

Tony McIntyre drives approximately 500 miles per day. At today’s high fuel costs (more than $3.00 per gallon for diesel), he is now managing to save about $50 per day after installing his VortexValve?. We have produced a copy of his logbook data so that you can do your own calculations (see below).

The forward-thinking transportation company McIntyre works for was quick to see the potential benefit it could pass on to its drivers. The company bought hundreds of VortexValves? and installed them free of charge for any of its owner-operators who wanted one.

To sum it all up, McIntyre’s personal experience causes him to enthusiastically exclaim, “If you want to save money, I highly recommend the Vortex Valve?”.

VortexValves? are not limited to “Big Rigs”. Air Synergy Labs, the manufacturer, says there is a VortexValve? to fit almost any year, make and model of car, truck, boat, motorcycle, motorhome, moped or scooter. The company backs each VortexValve? with a guarantee of 100% satisfaction or 110% refund of the purchase price.

Here are Tony McIntyre’s numbers – his truck is a 2002 Columbia Freightliner running a Detroit Diesel? Series 60. He installed his VortexValve? at the beginning of June 2006. Diesel Fuel Mileage was increased from 6.63 miles per gallon to 8.15 miles per gallon, on average ? Check the fuel savings data below. McIntyre will continue to log data over the ensuing months.
