Using gravity and Eco-roll to lower fuel use

Scania's new Eco-roll function will help customers in Europe reduce fuel use when it becomes available in early 2014. The feature, which chooses optimal times for trucks to roll downhill in neutral, will be available from the first quarter 2014 to European customers who purchase a truck fitted with Scania Opticruise and Scania Active Prediction. Eco-roll promises to cut fuel use by up to two percent, depending on the terrain in which a vehicle is travelling.
