 Allison Transmission New Technology to Optimize Fuel Savings

Allison Transmission has announced FuelSense® 2.0 featuring DynActive™ Shifting, delivering what the company says is “up to 6 percent additional fuel savings beyond the company’s original FuelSense software.”

“This latest technology further reduces fuel consumption in all segments of a vehicle’s duty-cycle,” said Heidi Schutte, vice president of marketing and sales for the Americas with Allison Transmission. “FuelSense 2.0 offers increased specification flexibility and delivers the best economic value to our customers.”

Introduced in March 2014, Allison’s FuelSense packages enabled significant fuel economy improvements. Through a set of proprietary software enhancements, the new FuelSense 2.0 technology uses DynActive Shifting to provide an infinitely variable combination of shift points. FuelSense 2.0 uses a learning algorithm to continuously find the ideal balance of fuel economy and performance.

FuelSense 2.0 is ideally suited for city bus, school bus, refuse, construction and distribution. With nearly 3 million test miles in customer fleets representing a variety of duty-cycles, the fleets have experienced fuel economy gains up to 6 percent. This fuel economy improvement resulted in estimated per vehicle savings of $300 to $900 annually based on application, annual mileage and fuel price.
