ACT Research announces an enhanced fuels calculator for fleets that now covers operating cost comparisons between diesel, natural gas, hydrogen-fuel cell, and electric. ACT’s Truck Fuel Calculator helps fleets measure power selection and vehicle cost, fuel and performance, and maintenance over a set time period or trade cycle.

“Electric vehicle technology continues to make strides as it further penetrates the various vehicle classifications with Class 8 on the docket,” said Ken Vieth, senior partner and general manager at ACT Research. “All viable commercial vehicle power alternatives must now be considered to accurately measure potential cost savings for fleets as we look to the future.”

ACT also offers a “Natural Gas & Alternative Fuels Quarterly Report” for companies interested in the alternative fuels market. It is designed to give enhanced insights in the evolution of the adoption of alternative fuels for the heavy duty transportation industry. Diesel is still king of the road but change is coming.
