VQ Efficiency

Make your vehicles
work for you

Improve fuel efficiency,
Improve Your Bottom Line.
Leveraging calibrations to modify a vehicle's engine parameters improves fuel efficiency, decreases fuel costs, and limits dangerous driver behavior. Infusing calibration capabilities into the Derive VQ® fleet management system, allows fleet managers to customize any vehicle with automated idle management, eco adjustments, and speed governing.

Reduce fuel costs

Idle Reduction

Idling is one of the worst fuel-wasting activities for a fleet, wasting as much as 0.25-0.50 gallons/hour, depending on the size of the engine. Implementing Idle Reduction Management significantly limits or eliminates these costs by relying on the vehicle to manage idling rather than the driver.

"Green" your operation

Eco Adjustment

Adjusting the parameters of a vehicle’s engine to minimize fuel waste during vehicle acceleration reduces redline shifting and engine wear and tear. Drivers will experience a smoother driving experience and fleet managers no longer have to modify driver’s acceleration throttle response control.

Increase driver safety

Speed Governor

Speed governing can restrict maximum speed to the limit mandated by a fleet’s policy. By relying on the vehicle to manage speed, drivers are no longer put in a position where their driving habits can affect the safety of themselves and other passengers on the road or the efficiency of the vehicle.

Engine calibrations are a way to customize the vehicles in your fleet to make them work in the most effective way possible.

  • Fuel Efficiency
    Fuel Efficiency

    After implementing engine calibrations, most fleets experience a fuel cost savings of 6-12%.

  • Fuel Efficiency

    Limiting vehicle speed can help minimize risky driver behavior and help ensure your vehicles and drivers are safe.

  • Fuel Efficiency

    Fleet vehicles are not one-size-fits-all. By making specific alterations you can make your vehicles conducive to their required use.

  • Fuel Efficiency

    From unlocking horsepower and torque to adjusting throttle sensitivity, and changing the vehicles shifting points, you can make your vehicles more productive.
