Influence of Parking Air Conditioning on Vehicle Fuel Consumption


With the development of trucks, you will find that the configuration of trucks is becoming more and more comfortable, with four-point airbag suspension in the cab, air shock-absorbing seats, steering assist, and even on-board air conditioners. In the hot summer, it provides a comfortable driving environment.

The DC 12V/24V parking air conditioner came into being, which is the common aftermarket truck air conditioner on the market. Solved the problem of truck friends being hot in the summer. It is widely adopted by everyone because of its compact size, low energy consumption and excellent refrigeration.

But we installed the parking air conditioner not only to provide us with coolness, but more importantly, it will affect the fuel consumption, that is, "idling often, idling fuel consumption".

Modern EFI high-pressure common rail is the mainstream fuel supply method for trucks. A heavy-duty diesel engine needs about 3L of diesel for one hour of idling. The negative impact is not only the premature wear of the engine, but also the fuel consumption of the whole vehicle. Increase.

Next, we will give you an example, and then you will understand how it affects the fuel consumption.

Idle speed often accounts for almost half of the driving time. From July 13th to August 30th, if the idle speed is 142 hours, even if 400L of diesel is consumed, the unit price is 5 RMB(0.8USD) per liter, and it will take less than two months (the statistics start on July 13th, and the August I almost didn’t get out of the car, and it only took a month together) to idle the air conditioner for 2,000 RMB(315 USD)

  1. After reinstalling electric truck air conditioner

Through the above data, we can see that the idling time after installing the parking air conditioner has been significantly reduced. Although the vehicle's attendance efficiency from September to October has increased, due to the installation of parking air conditioners, the engine can be prevented from idling for a long time during loading and unloading or rest, which not only saves fuel costs, but also effectively protects the engine.

The short-distance transportation is different from the long-distance transportation. Most of the time, it is either queuing up for loading or queuing for unloading. According to a preliminary estimate, the fuel consumption spent on the idle air conditioner for a month is about 2,000 RMB/month (USD 320). Overall, the cost of this is still quite large.

Today's transportation industry has reached a period of low gross profit, and everyone pays more and more attention to fuel consumption. We have to admit that there are many factors that affect fuel consumption, but the fuel consumption of the vehicle affected by idling cannot be ignored. Therefore, according to the operation of your own vehicle, it is necessary to choose the vehicle configuration reasonably, and the parking air conditioner is still necessary.
