From northern Finland to southern Italy, from the most westerly point in Spain to the most easterly corner of Romania, the Mercedes-Benz Fuel Duel is held in numerous European countries. The first fuel comparison test took place approximately five years ago in the Netherlands. The conditions haven’t changed since then: a Mercedes-Benz Actros takes on the tasks of a competitor vehicle in a logistics company fleet and drives with its load and route for two weeks. The driver is thoroughly trained beforehand and is initially accompanied by a professional trainer or an experienced Mercedes-Benz Trucks salesperson.
The driver then carries out the usual tasks unaccompanied in the Actros, supported by the FleetBoard telematics system.
