Over ten percent consumption advantage.
From northern Finland to southern Italy, from the most westerly point in Spain to the most easterly corner of Romania – the “Fuel Duel” fuel comparison test takes place in 22 countries in Europe. 90 Mercedes-Benz Actros vehicles with Euro VI exhaust technology are used for this purpose.
The 18 and 25-ton vehicles have now driven 1,000 Fuel Duels against the most important European competitors – a total of approximately five million kilometres. The Mercedes-Benz Actros has won over 90 percent of these duels. The consumption advantage determined compared with the competitors is approximately 10.5 percent on average.
