The amount of money a truck APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) can save you per year varies based on several factors such as fuel prices, the number of hours the APU is used, the cost of idling, and the specific APU model and efficiency.
On average, a truck APU can save anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000 or more per year.
Let’s break down the potential savings:
Reduced Fuel Consumption:
The primary source of savings comes from reduced fuel consumption since the truck’s main engine doesn’t need to idle for extended periods. Idling can consume about 0.5 to 1 gallon of fuel per hour. If a truck idles for 5-8 hours a day, 250 days a year, and diesel costs around $3 per gallon, an APU could save around $1,875 to $3,000 annually.
Extended Engine Life
Reduced engine idling also means less wear and tear on the truck’s engine, potentially extending its lifespan and decreasing maintenance costs. The exact amount saved varies based on maintenance schedules and the specific engine model.
APUs themselves require maintenance, but the cost is generally lower than maintaining a truck’s main engine. Regular maintenance costs can be offset by the fuel and maintenance savings gained from reduced idling.
Compliance and Fines
In some areas, idling restrictions are enforced, and truckers can face fines for non-compliance. Avoiding these fines adds to the annual savings.
The improved comfort for drivers during rest breaks can contribute to better health and morale, potentially leading to increased productivity and reduced turnover.
It’s important to note that the initial investment for purchasing and installing an APU can vary greatly, depending on the APU model, installation costs, and any additional features. Additionally, the actual savings will depend on how much you would have idled your truck without the APU and the consistency of your truck’s usage pattern.
