AireDock®, by American Idle Reduction LLC, provides a much-needed solution to the problem of unnecessary engine idling truck stops and is a cost-effective way to cut air pollution.
Long-haul combination trucks often idle up to eight hours per day, over 300 days per year. Typical combination trucks consume 1 gallon of diesel fuel during each hour of idling, using as much as 1900 gallons of fuel each year for truck. A fleet operator could save $7600 per truck annually at a cost of $4.00 per gallon of diesel.
A reduction in engine idling will reduce engine maintenance and expand the life of the engine. Without having to idle the truck's engine, drivers will be sleeping in a healthier and less noisy cabin area, allowing for more restful breaks. This improves on road safety.
