Fleet Fuel Study show continued improvement despite lower diesel prices

I am very excited about the results of our latest Fleet Fuel Study.

This is a big win because it means that they understand the importance of investing in the more than 70 technologies we have identified even if low fuel prices make payback periods longer.
