Engine maker Detroit Diesel has released the first in a four-part video training series that is aimed at helping truck drivers enhance the performance of their vehicles’ engines. The training can be accessed either at this special Detroit Diesel videos page or at www.youtube.com/DemandItAll.
The four videos include general product background on Detroit Diesel’s DD13, DD15 and DD16 family of diesel engines; guidelines on driving for optimal fuel economy and power; specifics on BlueTec SCR emissions aftertreatment, including detailed information about diesel exhaust fluid (DEF); and updates on DDEC, which is Detroit Diesel’s proprietary electronic engine monitoring system.
The engine maker said the videos also provide step-by-step guidance for drivers on using Detroit Diesel’s products as well as provide information on driving trucks with older vs. newer engine models, “detailing the differences in engine characteristics that drivers need to know.”
“Detroit Diesel’s products are among the most reliable and fuel-efficient engines available today. We want to help our customers further maximize their performance by providing them with useful tips,” said Brad Williamson, director-- engine and component marketing for Detroit Diesel.
