As the summer heat approaches, and the nicer weather is around the corner, I would like to remind EVERYONE to watch their idle time. Firstly, there is no sense in idling the truck when you walk into the driver’s room or are talking with the shop. You’re air pressure is already up and you’ve moved the truck. SHUT IT OFF! Idling one truck doesn’t use that much fuel, but remember FVMartin owns 60 trucks, which adds up. Secondly, the old ways of “burning up starters” is long gone. Thirdly, fuel prices have skyrocketed over the past two months. If we all do our part to save some money, I bet you’ll see some returns.
