Continental: Number One in Fuel Efficiency

PIT Group ran two separate comparison tests on steer, drive, and trailer tires running on three identically spec’d tractors and trailers. The tests were conducted according to the TMC Fuel Consumption Test Procedure – Type III, RP 1103A.  Each tire brand was tested on three identical vehicles, by switching tires from one test vehicle to another between tests, to clearly identify their impact on fuel consumption.
