Derive Systems has released new engine calibration software to improve fuel economy of the Ford Transit with 3.7L or 3.5L engines.
“Businesses select the Ford Transit because their fleets require a highly customizable vehicle,” said Tom Kanewske, senior director of business development. “Derive addresses the most significant portion of this customization challenge by delivering a focused engine solution that directly lowers the bottom-line maintenance and fuel costs.”
The software includes a top-speed limiter and reduces idle rpm by 30%.
“At Derive, we realize that each industry operates the same vehicle differently. By understanding these differences, we are able to deliver a client-specific solution that addresses a fleet’s most significant budget drivers – fuel, maintenance and insurance,” added Kanewske.
Derive also offers engine software calibration products for Ford, Chevrolet, GM, Chrysler, Nissan, Toyota, Paccar, Mercedes, Caterpillar, Cummins and Detroit Diesel engines.
