It is designed and built as a hyper-fuel-efficient Class 8 truck with the capability for reducing the energy usage associated with the transportation of goods. The body of the proposed tractor is made of carbon fiber from the side skirts, to the hood, and front end.

The Trucker News Publisher states:

” The truck will use a number of full synthetic Shell Lubricants products including Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 transmission oil, Spirax S5 ADE 75W-80 differential oil and Spirax S6 GME 40 wheel hub oil. In addition, Shell Rotella Extended Life Coolant will provide excellent high-temperature protection and heat transfer. Shell Rotella Diesel Exhaust Fluid, a high purity diesel exhaust fluid, will also be in the truck. ”

The efficiency and lesser fuel costs could really make positive and growing changes for both Shell, AirFlow Truck Co. and the trucking industry altogether.

One Wrong Turn into a 4 Day Excursion

The New York Post – the 4th largest newspaper in the United States and leading digital media publisher – reported that a trucker from Portland, OR – Jacob Cartwright, 22 years old – was en route to his destination when he put in the wrong address and got stuck in the woods in an area with limited cell reception.

Cartwright was hauling a trailer full of potato chips and claimed he never ate or took any with him during his 14 mile walk in a span of four days.

He finally ended up in the town of La Grande dehydrated and determined to get back to his wife and kids.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
