5 Fuel Saving Tips

Potter's Fuel Saving Tips

  1. Keep tire pressure at company recommended pressures and check them weekly.
  2. Keep the truck maintenance up to date. Dirty oil and dirty air cost fuel.
  3. Keep your trailer as close to the tractor as possible.
  4. Keep all aerodynamic devices intact and get them repaired if needed.
  5. Keep your truck clean. The slicker the truck, the smoother it goes through the air.

Stay Fit Out There

Staying Fit on the Road

Exercise: Walking around your truck and trailer 32 times is considered a mile.

Food: Being on the road makes it hard for the drivers to make healthy lifestyle changes sometimes but below is a list of some options that are less than 400 calories:

  • McDonald's – Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich (350 calories, 9 grams of fat)
  • Subway – Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki 6" Sub (370 calories, 4.5 grams of fat)
  • Burger King – Whopper Jr. (350 calories, 21 grams of fat)

Some general fast food rules to live by: Avoid fried sides, such as fries or onion rings. Don't drink your calories; forego milkshakes, sugary coffee drinks, and soda. Beware of adding calories when you get condiments. Adding that extra BBQ sauce can add a bunch of hidden calories to your meal.
