Fuel costs constitute about a third of the total vehicle operating costs. Such a major cost area has attracted plenty of attention over the years and continues to do so, hence the continuing development of more fuel efficient engines which are, at the same time, increasingly environmentally friendly.
There have been major improvements over the last 10 years in engineering a cleaner vehicle incorporating reductions in the amount of fuel being used together with technology such as engine management systems and emission control devices. Alternative fuels are gradually finding niche markets too, as innovative fleet operators and fuel suppliers jointly develop new products.
