The Propane APU features a unique systems architecture that offers several advantages for truck drivers and owner-operators. The APU’s use of propane system reduces diesel usage and increases operational efficiency. Eliminating the use of the diesel semi engine for these functions results in a more efficient engine operation due to reduced overall truck level power requirements — the truck does not draw as much horsepower off the engine in cruise, so it doesn’t burn as much fuel. The corresponding predicted improvement in fuel consumption, at cruise conditions, is in the range of 1 to 2 percent.
