    Fleets Enjoy Fuel Efficiency Gains in New Trucks, But Express Concerns on Maintenance Costs

    • I've been in trucking for the past 40 years, and the new engines DO NOT get better fuel mileage. We are doing much more towards maintenance so that we can extend the use of our older trucks. WE DO NOT LIKE BUYING THE NEW TRUCKS BECAUSE OF MAINTENANCE AND FUEL MILEAGE!
