C R England uses 
fuel-saving truck wheel
 covers

Salt Lake City, UT, US: C R England expects to save more than 100,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year by fitting aerodynamic wheel covers to its truck fleet.

C R England has purchased enough Deflecktor Aero wheel covers from maker A de F to outfit 1,000 of its company-owned trucks. The aerodynamic wheel covers improve the fuel efficiency of tractors and trailers.

“We have tested the fuel efficiency benefits of Deflecktor wheel covers. Based on the results, we expect a quick payback with minimal capital outlay,” said Corey England, executive vice-president of operations support, C R England.

“I knew that smoothing wheel contours with a simple lightweight device would reduce the overall coefficient of drag of a tractor in motion and thereby increase energy efficiency,” said Jon Fleck, inventor and owner of A de F. “The Deflecktor helps environmentally conscious truckload carriers like C R England reduce fuel consumption and operate more efficiently.”

The Deflecktor’s design uses fabric and results in complete installation in seconds and instantaneous access for inspection. This wheel cover is covered by multiple patents that are issued and pending worldwide.
