The Actros has also competed in the Fuel Duel in Germany. The 1,000th comparison test took place at Spedition Kreykenbohm in Holzminden, Germany. Willi-Ingo Kreykenbohm runs the family company which was founded in 1924 and has 22 trucks in the fleet – not one of which is a Mercedes-Benz. On average, each Kreykenbohm truck covers up to 120,000 kilometres per year. Without the Actros, the fuel consumption is an average of 29 litres of diesel for every 100 kilometres. This value had to be beaten in the Fuel Duel. And the Actros 1845 LS did it again: with an average total fuel consumption of 26.5 litres, it completely outpaced the competition. For an annual distance of 120,000 kilometres, this means a saving of at least 3,000 litres and a CO₂ reduction of 7.9 tons.
