There’s a new “math equation,” so to speak, being deployed in the world of new-truck sales, but it’s one any buyer of new or used trucking equipment should think about: return on sales or “ROS.” Mark Lampert, senior vice president-sales and marketing for Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), discussed this topic with me last month. He explained this is how Manufacturers many OEMs—but his in particular—hope to recoup the tremendous amount of are explaining money manufacturers spent over the last decade adding emissions control technol“truck math” ogy to their products. According to all the information I’ve gathered over the years, between $13,500 and $23,300 got added to the base cost of a Class 8 truck since 2002 to meet emissions mandates. Yet, from Lampert’s perspective, there’s a benefit to customers using DTNA’s selective catalytic reduction technology package to comply with the 2010 emissions rules and that’s improved fuel economy, which the company says can be on the order of 5%. Going forward, Lampert explained that OEMs like DTNA will present a new ROS formula to customers. “If we can provide you with increased fuel economy and improved uptime, meaning less money spent on maintenance and less time in the shop, then we will ask for a premium for our product,” he noted. “We expect the customer would be able to ‘pay back’ the premium we need in a year or two from the fuel and maintenance savings,” he pointed out. Let’s see how the market responds to that. AT

Fighting regulations M

Parts demand increasing Alliance Truck Parts is trying to position itself as an all-makes “value brand.”

T

he demand for aftermarket truck parts is booming and is poised to keep gaining strength as owners continue to extend truck ownership cycles. Alliance Truck Parts (ATP) executives, speaking at a NASCAR media event in Miami, FL, in December, explained that longer trade cycles are driving up prices for used trucks, causing many to keep their trucks longer. This is resulting in more maintenance work and driving parts demand. Dan Haggerty, Daimler Truck North America’s (ATP’s parent company) director of parts and service marketing, noted that the company is trying to position ATP to attract the second and third owners of trucks who are seeking quality parts to get the most life out of their trucks. “With the value of that equipment higher and expectations for it to last longer, we’re seeing the opportunity to sell quality, value, and dealership service at a competitive price,” said Haggerty. “We’re trying to show the second and third owner that our parts and service pricing is not all that bad, and is worth the investment to sustain

longer ownership periods.” John O’Leary, DTNA senior vice president-aftermarket, noted that the company is focused on expanding the distribution footprint of its ATP brand of parts, which contains 20 product lines aimed at the Class 6-8 truck market. “We’re trying to [make ATP] known as the all-makes ‘value brand’ in the parts market,” he explained. “Since the industry went through its worst downturn ever starting in 2008, budgets now do not always support buying parts at premium price points. We want to fill the ‘middle tier’ of the truck parts segment; we want to be the better part at a good price.” ATP is also continuing to “rationalize” its parts offerings, adding six new ones in 2011 and discontinuing others. New offerings include charge air coolers, radiators, new clutch assemblies, four new battery models, and new brake chamber models. New products expected this year include customizable fuel tanks, U-joints, starters and alternators, fifth wheel top plates, and air springs. —SEAN KILCARR

any truckers and carriers feel they’re being regulated right out of business. But if you’re going to be in the trucking business, you need to figure out how to deal with rules and regs that you may not agree with. You need to figure out how to make them work to your advantage. A trucker wouldn’t let a mountain, adverse weather or congested traffic beat him, so why would he let a bunch of changed rules run him out of business? We must get the attention of the politicians and force them to put pressure on regulators. We must do this by getting the public’s attention. The best way to do this is to adhere to the rules shippers place upon your trucking operation, while at the same time making sure you are financially compensated for the increased costs and any lost revenue incurred due to the new rules. Hold your shippers accountable for delays they create. Make sure you’re fully compensated for both the time and distance required to complete each load. Then let the shippers know why their rates have increased. If you don’t ask, you won’t ever receive, and if you don’t insist on better compensation, it will never happen.

On Oct. 19, 2011, Brian J. Fosdick of Marshfield, MA, was fatally injured while performing “some kind of tirechanging operation” on a septic truck. A reporter from the local newspaper called me that afternoon looking for more information on multi-piece rim service. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the exact cause of the accident, from what I was told, it appeared to be avoidable incident. Lack of another This seems to be a common regarding fatalities knowledge theme and truck-tire service bemechanics and maincan be deadly cause tenance personnel working for transportation companies appear to have a higher risk of being injured. I have participated in several investigations over the past few years and in almost every instance, the victims were unaware of the risks because they were not properly trained. While every inflated truck tire and wheel has enough explosive force to cause a serious or fatal injury, the multipiece assemblies are clearly the most dangerous. To begin with, the rim components will typically be at least 20 years old, so finding the identification stamps to determine if they match is often next to impossible. It’s also important to note that decades of service will result in some degree of corrosion and pitting. The end result is a heightened level of unpredictability, particularly when removing the inflated assembly from the vehicle. OSHA published a demount/mount chart to provide employees with additional information outside of Regulation 29 CFR 1910.177. The chart outlines the steps that must be taken to reduce the chances of an accident. Based on my conversation with the reporter, Mr. Fosdick would probably be alive if OSHA guidelines had been followed.

14 American Trucker/February 2012

Before loosening the lug nuts on any multi-piece demountable (or Dayton) rim assembly, both tires in a dual position must always be deflated. This procedure has been the subject of great debate over the years as it significantly increases the amount of time that it takes to remove the tires. Productivity experts will point to the fact that it doesn’t make sense to deflate a tire that isn’t flat, but they aren’t the ones standing in front of a potential bomb. If the tires are not pressurized, then the “bombs” are essentially defused. To the average mechanic, truck-tire service appears to be so simple a caveman could do it. After all, it’s just “nuts and bolts,” so rather than watch the work go to an outside vendor, employees decide to protect their jobs and save the company some money. When dealing with tubeless tires on single-piece rims, the risks related to that practice are notably minimal. However, the hazards associated with multi-piece service are more severe, which means the untrained employee may be completely unaware of the consequences when safety procedures are not followed. OSHA provides weekly summaries of fatalities and catastrophes that occur in the workplace. The majority of the accidents related to tire and wheel service over the past 12 months did not take place in a traditional tire dealership, which doesn’t make sense from a statistical perspective. One would think that the employees of tire dealers would have the most risk simply because they service a greater number of assemblies on a daily basis. Maybe it’s just luck, but I believe that professional tire service technicians are trained to recognize the hazards so they see a lot more than just a few nuts and bolts. AT

LEASING

Attention to detail Keeping specs driver-friendly keeps rental fleet booked

I

If you ask David Bylenga, executive vice president of Star Truck Rentals, what keeps him up at night, his answer is both swift and to the point. “Have we made the right decisions going forward?” he asks. “Are we specifying the equipment that meets our customer’s needs today and on a long-term basis?” Even more to the point, Bylenga says that his concerns recently are most often focused on engines, especially as the fleet fields what he sees are yet to be proven 2010 emissions-compliant designs. “For Class 6, 7 and 8 tractors and trucks, we’ve been primarily buying Cummins ISX, B and C models,” he relates, “although we’ve been sticking our toe in the water with other engine makes. The SCR engines in our operation have not had any issues so far and DEF availability hasn’t been a problem; however, we do have some long-term maintenance concerns.” Economic issues also impact Star’s equipment decisions. “While we’d prefer growth to come from our longterm full-service business,” Bylenga says, “our daily rental operation is a beneficiary of the slow recovery we’re seeing, and that’s where we’ve been in-

vesting in new equipment more heavily for the past two years. “At the same time,” Bylenga continues, “in daily rental we will often be dealing with someone who is not an experienced driver, and that significantly increases the potential for a costly breakdown due to driver error. If a vehicle is in the shop for unnecessary repairs, it’s not on the road where we and the customer are both making money.”

GOING AUTOMATED

To address this particular challenge, Star has been a longtime proponent of automated transmissions. The company recently ordered 15 Freightliner 26-ft. trucks specified with Eaton UltraShift HV mediumduty transmissions for its daily rental fleet. The UltraShift HV is a fully automated gearbox for Class 6 and 7 vehicles powered by diesel engines in the 195 to 260 hp. range. “The UltraShift HV transmission is perfect for our rental fleet because it makes shifting decisions for less experienced drivers,” Bylenga says. “There are also inherent safety benefits because having two pedals

instead of three means operators have one less thing to worry about when driving and can keep both hands on the wheel at all times.” Lonnie Vis, maintenance director at Star Truck Rentals, says a big reason why the fleet is spec’ing Eaton’s automated transmissions is the customer support it has been getting from the manufacturer. Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Star fields about 1,500 power units at 17 facilities in Michigan and Indiana, and is a NationaLease affiliate. Believed to have been founded as Star Baggage Co. in the 1860s, the company has been owned and operated by the Bylenga family since 1916. Almost 100 years later, Bylenga notes, Star is still addressing the same types of challenges. “Trucking equipment is getting better all the time in some respects, but it’s increasingly complex and expensive to maintain, in part because of ongoing regulatory activity,” he explains. “When it comes to regulations, we always wonder what’s next. Sometimes we worry more about how the government will impact our business than about our competition.”

shop talk MANAGER: Peter Kane and Greg Graves TITLE: Vice president-operations and sales manager, respectively FLEET: Kane Transport, Sauk Centra, MN OPERATION: Fuel hauler with 180 tractors and 250 tanker trailers

Cold-weather solution Cold weather is always unpredictable, punishing man and machine alike; but for trucking, it’s even more so. Just turning over diesel engines in freezing temperatures can be a challenge, and that’s before the use of fuels such as biodiesel get thrown into the mix. Biodiesel blends of B20 or below, a mixture of 20% biodiesel with 80% “regular” diesel, are considered by many to be ideal green fuels as they can be readily used in current diesel-powered equipment with few if any component changes. However, one big difference between biodiesel and regular diesel is its cold flow properties. For example, B20’s cloud point, the temperature at which it begins to

gel or become waxy, is three or four degrees higher than straight diesel. And truckers using biodiesel in their engines aren’t the only ones who have to worry about its cold flow properties either, notes Peter Kane, vice president-operations, for fuel hauler Kane Transport Inc. “When your territory includes Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, as well as Manitoba and Saskatchewan, you have to be ready for cold weather if you want to haul biodiesel year round, as biodiesel tends to gel or ‘freeze’ at higher temperatures than conventional diesel,” he says.

When customers approached Kane Transport to haul biodiesel, the carrier decided it needed to work on a way to make it happen. While such “freezing” wouldn’t affect the fuel inside the insulated tankers Kane uses, it would be an issue for the exterior pipes that run the bellies of its tankers. The comSOLUTION along pany tapped Greg Graves, sales manager responsible for transportation of renewable fuels, gas, diesel, and compressed gases, to work with trailer maker Polar Tank Trailer to figure out a way to solve this cold flow problem. In extreme cold weather, biodiesel would gel in the exposed piping on the belly of the trailers, hardening like a “stick of butter,” in Peter Kane’s words, and creating a maintenance nightmare for the fleet. “There’s no easy way to deal with frozen fuel in the pipes, except to wait for it to thaw,” he says. “Whatever we did had to be simple and effective. We’re sensitive about adding weight, cost, or complexity, and Polar understood that.” Together, Kane and Polar came up with a novel way to insulate and warm the bottom pipes on the fleet’s 8,500gal. 43-ft. aluminum tankers: wrapping the exposed belly

pipes with, for lack of a better term, “electric blankets.” Graves explains that the belly pipes are kept warm by a heated, insulated wrap to ensure an even temperature throughout. “It’s a low-maintenance solution that should last the life of the trailer, which for us is 30 years,” he says. Peter Weis, Polar’s chief engineer, says the electrical heating system is also redundantly sealed against moisture and vapors. “This is a low-temperature system that operates essentially at ambient temperatures,” he explains. “The heating element is protected by a double vapor barrier and incorporates an internal thermostat to maintain correct temperatures while preventing overheating.” All of the system’s switches and indicators are vaporproof and mounted away from the fuel discharge area to prevent any sort of electrical spark from potentially igniting the fuel. To date, Kane has bought 17 tanker trailers equipped with this custom-designed pipe-heating system, and five more are on order. “We’ve had no issues whatsoever with the product gelling or freezing, and we’ve now been hauling biodiesel in 30 or 40 below-zero temperatures,” Graves says. —SEAN KILCARR

Fifth wheels

A

As additional emissions equipment to help meet EPA 2010 emissions regulations was added to Class 8 tractors in 2010, more fleets began looking at other areas to offset that weight increase. Fifth wheels remain a primary target of such fleet weight-reduction efforts going forward on both factory-delivered tractors and in the aftermarket. Fifth wheel manufacturers are equally as focused on eliminating as much weight as they can in new products while increasing safety at the same time. “To offset the increased weight of tractors, the Fontaine Ultra LT was launched in 2010 as the lightest fifth wheel slider system in the industry,” says Terry Mennen, vice president of sales & marketing, Fontaine International. “Steel construction makes it costeffective when evaluating cost per pound for lightweight options. We added the Fontaine Ultra NT recently due to customer requests for a fifth wheel that incorporates the Fontaine No-Slack lock on a lightweight slider.” Fontaine is continually looking at new products that can help customers meet their needs. “The new Fontaine Ultra NT and Fontaine Ultra iT (which weighs 165 lbs.) are the latest fifth wheel top plates to continue the theme of weight reduction,” says Toby Harris, vice president of sales & marketing, Fontaine Fifth Wheel.

Weight remains the focus

OTHER CONCERNS

At Jost International, everyone is also concerned about product weight. “Fleets and OEM partners alike are interested in reducing weight,” says Rich Carroll, vice president-sales & marketing. “Our JSK36NSL line of top plates offers a 35-lb. reduction from our JSK37USL line. Our ProTech inboard mount is a true integral angle design. By eliminating a set of mounting angles, we offer weight savings approaching 100 lbs., depending on length of travel and mounting height.” But Carroll offered a cautionary note as well. “Any time you’re considering weight reduction, [be aware] of the balance between weight reduction, durability and lifetime cost of ownership, not simply acquisition costs. With regard to weight reduction/durability, this becomes critical when it involves such a vital safety-related component as fifth wheels.” To meet demands for ways to easily identify when a

fifth wheel is locked properly, Jost created the Locktronic. “Our Locktronic is a self-contained, battery-operated sensor positioned at the release point of the fifth wheel that senses and reports a safely locked condition through a flashing light,” Carroll says. Jost also offers the JSK37YSA top plate with a simplified air release system for yard mules and port tractors.

WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS

“Generally, fleets are looking for reliability; reduced maintenance, including lubrication; and weight reduction,” relates Mike Ginocchio, vice president-product planning & development for SAF-Holland’s Power Vehicle business unit. “With respect to reliability, SAFHolland constantly strives for and achieves the highest standards in quality and reliability.” According to Ginocchio, SAF-Holland is the only fifth wheel company to offer a “completely lube-free fifth wheel.” The company also offers low-lube and NoLube options on its most popular fifth wheels. “We offer the lightest assembly in the industry with our forged aluminum FWAL fifth wheel, and our FW17 is one of the lightest cast steel fifth wheels in the world,” Ginocchio says. He adds that offering time-saving and maintenance-reducing options on fifth wheels can improve driver retention and attraction. “Features that increase driver comfort and reduce the risk of injury include the Holland fifth wheel kingpin air release option and lock sensor systems that provide a remote in-cab display of the fifth wheel’s coupling status,” he FOR MORE INFORMATION, says. “Fleets are facing VISIT THESE WEB SITES: FONTAINE FIFTH WHEEL increasing competition www.fifthwheel.com and with the recent enactment of CSA reguJOST INTERNATIONAL lations, safety-sensor www.jostinternational.com technologies, such as our patented elecSAF-HOLLAND tronic lock indicator, www.safholland.com help fleets increase efficiency and safety.”

Fueling your Profits B Y T I M B R A D Y, BUSINESS EDITOR

re you still dealing with fuel surcharges? If so, you need to bring how you cover your fuel costs into this century. With diesel fuel continuing to hover around $4/gal. and no relief in sight, fuel remains the primary expense, and an unpredictable one at that, for any trucker.

Created in the late 1970s, the fuel charge was established by the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) as a way to help then-regulated trucking companies recoup sudden increases in fuel costs. The same basic formula is still used today. The first surcharge was 18%

of the line haul and was assessed across all segments of the industry. The idea was to reimburse the purchaser of fuel for the increased cost of fuel, which wasn’t addressed in the tari rates as set by the ICC. The fuel surcharge percentage was reevaluated at the end of each month and, based on the price of fuel on that

Trucker.com for used equipment listings


date, was adjusted up or down on the 15th of the following month. Te general formula and method has been used ever since. Te theory was that by using this method, truckers would recoup all their fuel costs over time.

PRICE HISTORY Now let’s take a quick, painful look at the history of diesel costs. In the ’50s and early ’60s, a gallon of diesel was somewhere between a nickel and a dime per gallon. By 1994 it increased to around $1.10/ gal., an increase in 40 years of a little over a dollar a gallon, or about $500 for 500 gals. of diesel. From April 1994 to April 2007, the cost of diesel increased from $1.10 to $2.85/gal., so a 500 gal. purchase increased from $550 to $1,425, or up $875 in 13 years. From April 2007 to April 2008, the cost per gallon of diesel increased from $2.85 to $4.14, so a 500 gal. purchase increased from $1,425 to $2,070—or up $645 in just a single year. As of this writing, diesel averaged $3.38/gal. nationally, with a high of $3.62 on the West Coast. Just within a year’s time, diesel has gone up almost 80¢/gal. Here’s the problem: If you adjust your fuel surcharge, even weekly, based on last week’s fuel price, that fuel surcharge won’t reflect the actual cost of fuel. It’ll be a week or more behind the current fuel cost and many dollars short. Small motor carriers can adjust more quickly to these soaring fuel costs than larger trucking companies. But there is an even easier way to account for the changes in diesel fuel prices. I came up with a simple system several years ago and have had a number of small carriers use it with great success. Shippers love the easy-to-understand formula; it’s

Go to

simple to calculate; and you’re not playing catch-up on your costs. Te current fuel surcharge method always looks at what fuel cost in the past, and then adjusts it so it equals some lower amount per gallon, i.e., $1.10/gal. or $1.50/gal. Tese are very unrealistic numbers in today’s trucking operations. Using this method in today’s volatile fuel price environment will always leave your carrier behind the fuel cost eight-ball. Instead of using a fuel surcharge, establish a fuel cost adjustment policy (FuelCAP). Tis creates a much more equitable system for both you and your shipper

Learning how to charge for fuel can take price volatility out of the equation so your rates include the real fuel cost for the load. To do this, you separate your fuel cost from the rest of your hauling rate by calculating a FuelCAP. To ensure your fuel costs are fully covered within the rate you provide a shipper, take the total miles of the load from destination to destination and divide by the truck’s actual miles per gallon. Multiply the number of gallons by the current price of fuel to arrive at your total fuel cost for the load. Divide your total fuel cost by the total miles to reach a fuel cost per mile figure. Here’s how your hauling rate works: Determine all your fixed costs and add in your capitalization point (profit) to calculate your base hauling rate (BHR) per day. Next, add your operational cost per mile

Trucker.com for used equipment listings

(maintenance, repairs and tires) to your fuel cost per mile. To determine a hauling rate per mile figure for your shipper, take the total days involved in the load multiplied by your base hauling rate plus your operational and fuel costs per mile (OFC) figure multiplied by the actual total miles (not the paid miles). Divide this total by the paid miles as provided by the shipper. For example, if you have a fourday load going 1,500 mi. that has paid miles of 1,200 mi., your BHR is $400 per day. Your operational cost is 15¢ per mile, and fuel cost is 65¢ per mile for a total OFC of 80¢ per mile. q BHR of $400 x 4 days = $1,600 q OFC of 80¢ x 1,500 mi. = $1,200 q $1,600 + $1,200 = $2,800 (your hauling rate) q $2,800 ÷ 1,200 mi. = $2.33/mi. (your required rate per “paid” mile on this load) Does this mean you’ll always get the rate you need to meet all of your needs? No, but it does help to establish the target amount required to meet all of your costs plus a profit that can sustain and grow your company. Trucking operates on an extremely thin profit margin, so controlling costs is important—but equally important is making sure those costs are covered. And because fuel is the one cost that can bury a carrier very quickly, making sure you are compensated in your hauling rates is imperative for your survival. Follow this formula, and you’ll be operating in the 21st century instead of running a fleet of Brockways. AT Contact Tim Brady at tbrady@writeuptheroad.com or call 731-749-8567.

Retrofit or replace? New state rules are bringing emissions standards to older trucks BY LARRY KAHANER, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

F

or owner-operator Christian Vega, retrofitting his truck to comply with air pollution regulations at the Port of Oakland was the only way he could stay in business. “There were a lot of drivers who didn’t think [tougher air pollution standards] were really going through. I didn’t really think it was going to go through, but they did pass the new regulations and the money for a retrofit came out of my own pocket.”

Vega uses his 1999 Kenworth for drayage at the port, and admits that the port’s air pollution requirements were difficult for him to understand. At first, he thought he would be able to put $10,000 into his truck and use it for another five or six years, but that turned out not to be the case. He finally got his engine to comply with 2014 requirements. “I’ve had the truck for two years so I bought about four years of extra operating time for $15,000, and I think that’s a good deal.”

HELP AVAILABLE

He didn’t have to put all the money down at once but instead pays a monthly note because he was able to get a loan from Cascade Sierra Solutions (http://cascadesierrasolutions. org), an Oregon based nonprofit organization dedicated to saving fuel and reducing emissions from heavyduty diesel engines. The group has been operating for about five years and has helped with about 100 retrofits in the Seattle area and additional trucks in the San Francisco Bay area for people like Vega. “We specialize in finding win-win solutions for public agencies, for the breathing public, and for trucking companies,” says development director Sandor Lau. “People getting retrofits by and large are doing it because they’re mandated to do so. There’s no business case for putting

on retrofits except that in regulated areas you get to stay in business rather than not staying in business.” The organization not only helps with securing loans, but helps truckers understand compliance regulations and schedules, which can be confusing because they can be different depending upon the state. However, the standards set by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are usually the de facto standard among states with diesel regulations. “The first question we usually get is, ‘do we have to do this?’” says Lau. “The second is, ‘I don’t understand what we have to do.’” Although groups like Cascade Sierra Solutions can be helpful in parsing out what you need to do to stay in compliance, CARB itself offers help and guidance. A guide is published at http://www.arb.ca.gov/ html/fact_sheets/smallfleet_comp.pdf to help understand the regulations. Other sources include state trucking associations and groups like OOIDA (http://www.ooida.com/). The ball got rolling in December 2008 when CARB approved regulations to reduce particulate matter and oxides of nitrogen from diesel vehicles operating within the state. For small fleets, those with one to three diesel trucks with gross vehicle weight ratings over 14,000 lbs. that are privately or federally owned (there are exceptions like transit

Trucker.com for used equipment listings

buses, port drayage, waste collection trucks and others—they are subject to other regulations), they can comply with the same modelyear schedules as larger fleets. Or, if they choose, they can take advantage of optional small fleet provisions that delay the initial particulate matter (PM) filter requirements until 2014 and delay engine replacements until Jan. 1, 2020, or later. (See Tables 1 and 2 for larger fleets.) Single-truck owners can delay the PM filter requirement for heavier trucks until Jan. 1, 2014, and truck replacement until 2023. If your truck engine is 1995 or older, you can comply with the schedule by replacing the vehicle by Jan. 1, 2015, or Jan. 1, 2016. (See Tables 3 and 4 for small fleets.) One of the most important items for truckers to know is that they must report their engines to CARB by the new deadline of March 31. (It was originally Jan. 31.) This reporting allows fleets to take advantage of credits. For example, any vehicle that is retrofitted with a PM filter before Jan. 1, 2014, will not need to be replaced until Jan. 1, 2020, regardless of engine model year. According to CARB: “Replacements can also be deferred until Jan. 1, 2023, for all heavier vehicles in the fleet if all heavier vehicles are equipped with PM filters by Jan. 1, 2014, or for all lighter vehicles in the fleet if all lighter trucks are equipped with PM filters by Jan. 1, 2014. Fleets must report information about each vehicle and the PM filter installed by Jan. 31, 2014, to claim the credits.”

THE EQUIPMENT

The purpose of retrofitting is to reduce particulate matter, which is the main focus of pollution mitigation, but also to reduce gases such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), hydrocarbons

American Trucker/February 2012 25


cover story (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO). Sometimes, these are classified by levels. Level 1 means a reduction of 25%; Level 2 means a reduction of 50%; and Level 3 is a reduction of 85% or more. There are many options depending upon the engine age and year, configuration, operating conditions such as temperature and altitude, and how the truck is run (i.e., short runs, drayage or long haul). “It’s different putting a retrofit on a long-haul truck that’s going over the Cascades or Sierras. It’s going to be reaching very high exhaust temperatures where you can put on a passive filter that will burn off the residue,” says Lau. “If you’re a local driver, and not necessarily going over big hills or pushing the engine to the limit, you may need an active filter which will burn off residue.”

THE DPF

By far the most popular pollution mitigation equipment is the diesel particulate filter. DPFs are exhaust aftertreatment devices that physically trap particulate matter and can drop its levels by 85 to 95% with accompanying reductions of HC (85-95%) and CO (50-90%). The equipment costs between $8,000 and $50,000 with an installation time of six to eight hours. The reason for the disparity in price is because of different engine types and age. In general, the older an engine, the more costly it is to retrofit both in equipment and labor. In fact, some vehicles like Class 6 and 7 utility trucks can be extremely difficult to retrofit because of ancillary equipment. DPFs work best on engines built after 1995 and usually offer the most efficient choice. Other choices are available and may be more cost-efficient based on state regulations and the truck’s condition and age. Diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs) are exhaust aftertreatment devices and typically

packaged with engine mufflers. They require little or no maintenance and have been well tested for years on many different engines. They can reduce PM between 20 and 40%. DOCs can reduce HC by 40 to 70% and CO by 40 to 60%. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, DOCs cost between $600 and $4,000 with installation taking one to three hours. Partial diesel particulate filters, or pDPF, can reduce PM up to 60% and also reduce HC by 40 to 70% and CO by 10 to 60%. These filters cost between $4,000 and $6,000 to buy and take six to eight hours to install. Also known as flow-through filters, pDPFs are much less efficient than DPFs and require minimum temperatures to work properly. In

other words, they are less efficient when engines are cold. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is used to reduce NOx fumes by up to 75%. It works by injecting diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) into the exhaust stream where it reacts with a catalyst to convert NOx into nitrogen gas and oxygen. SCR systems require periodic refilling of urea. Because of new NOx standards, most 2010 and newer engines come equipped with an SCR system. The cost to retrofit equipment with an SCR system ranges from $10,000 to $20,000, and installation costs can vary greatly.

cover story a system in which gases containing oil are captured and returned to the crankcase. These gases are ignited again and used for combustion. The amount of PM reduction varies greatly as does cost of equipment and installation. Most engines manufactured since 2007 have CCV systems, which are usually paired with DOC or PDF equipment. This is usually not retrofitted. Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) can reduce NOx by 25 to 40% and is also used in combination with DOC or DPF systems. EGR systems redirect a portion of exhaust back into the engine, which reduces peak combustion temperatures and pressures. This, in turn, reduces the production of NOx. EGR is seen in newer engines to comply with emissions regulations. Retrofitting can be difficult, and you don’t see it very much. The last retrofit system is called Lean NOx catalyst (LNC), which injects diesel into the exhaust stream and creates a catalytic reaction that reduces NOx pollution by 5 to 40%. LNCs are usually paired with DPFs but are rarely used because they can decrease fuel consumption by 5 to 7%. They can cost

Diesel particulate filters can cut up to 95% of particulate matter from exhaust.

$6,500 to $10,000. Whichever filtering system you choose, you cannot install it yourself, however. “The filter manufacturer is the one who certifies the installer. CARB verifies the filter for use,” says Karen Caesar, CARB information officer. “One of the main reasons for this is that even if a filter is verified for use on an engine, and for the given duty cycle, the engine may not have had proper maintenance, or may have other issues that keep the filter from working properly. The certified installer will ensure that the engine is in good

working order and that the filter will work properly. If that isn’t the case, someone who purchased a filter and installed it himself may have wasted a significant amount of money.”

RETROFIT OR NOT?

The choice to retrofit or buy a newer truck that meets pollution requirements comes down to dollars and cents. You have to ask yourself how long you want to keep the truck and is it worth the extra investment? The first step in figuring this out is to find an expert like those at Cascade Sierra Solutions, a dealer or mechanic. Look at current and resale value. A starting point for discussion is that a typical Level 3 retrofit costs $12,000 to $15,000. Is it worth the cost if spread out over the expected additional operating life of the truck? Do you want to meet requirements for many years out or just the minimum? Second, where will the money come from for the retrofit? Fortunately, grants exist from state agencies. For example, California’s Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program (Carl Moyer Program, http://www.arb. ca.gov/msprog/moyer/guidelines/ current.htm) offers grants to reduce

fleet does. Sometimes they have to make decisions because it’s cheaper to find a quick fix today and they really can’t look over a five- or 10year window. We are fortunate in that we are a large company; we do have the ability to look longer term and are not forced into making near-term decisions. When we looked at it in a bigger picture, ret-

Dave Meisel, director of transportation at Pacific Gas & Electric in San Francisco, says that the decision to retrofit or buy newer vehicles is unique to every fleet. “Instead of trying to retrofit and get maybe a couple more years out of our fleet, it was more cost-effective for us to buy new vehicles on a staggered schedule and skip that middle step. Another factor in our decision was that we had a hard time making the filters fit in our vehicles from a configuration perspective.” He says that the fleet’s 14,000 Class 6 and 7 utility trucks are about 10 to 12 years old and that compliance would only get them to 2007 compliance levels. He worked with CARB to devise a plan to get the entire fleet into compliance by 2017, five years ahead of schedule. “We tend to look at the total cost, and I know sometimes small fleets don’t have the cash flow that a big

rofitting didn’t make sense.” His advice for any size fleet? “If you have the ability to look longer term, make sure that your investment in a retrofit gives you a return on your investment over [the timeframe in which] you are going to use the vehicle, and see if [it is] more cost-effective by looking longer term.” AT
