Washington, D.C. – Beginning September 2nd, the Diesel Technology Forum will host a series of online web-based sessions on a range of topics including personal transportation choices, goods movement, rail and water transportation, emergency preparedness, agricultural productivity and efficiency, renewable fuels, construction efficiency and more. The first webinar on September 2nd will feature the lead researcher in the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute which released a new study this summer comparing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of diesel cars with gasoline cars. To determine the TCO for diesel and gasoline vehicles researchers compiled and compared data on a variety of expenses including depreciation, fuel costs, repairs, fees and taxes, insurance, and maintenance.
Long Beach, CA – With one of the largest medium and heavy duty fleets in the country, California stands to benefit the most from the federal government’s proposed truck fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction rules, a panel of federal officials was told today. “This new diesel technology is on the road today delivering real world benefits in the form of fuel savings and reducing carbon emissions. This year the American Lung Association, in its annual State of the Air Report identified cleaner diesel fleets as one of the two main contributors to helping the nation achieve cleaner air and meet the national ambient air quality standards," said Tom Fulks, representing the Diesel Technology Forum.
