E-COPILOT Adjusts Fuel Supply Based on Load

Many studies show that there is a gap of about 30% in fuel consumption between a diligent driver and a less diligent one. This difference can be explained only by certain driving habits. RM2J has finally found a solution with the E-COPILOT, using the Fuel MaximiZer technology.

“The E-COPILOT is a module that is installed between the accelerator pedal and the throttle position sensor (TPS). It measures in real time the load to be carried by the truck and adjusts the fuel supply based on this load, “says Jean Poulin, Engineer and Founder of RM2J INC, the company that developed and markets the E-COPILOT.
Assuming that a 500HP engine fully loaded requires all its power to move this full load, when this same truck returns to the terminal or to the next pick-up partially loaded or even empty, there is a great opportunity to save fuel while the truck does not require all its power. Since there is much weight variation from one course to another, the module provides the proper distribution of fuel based on the load, thereby saving a lot of fuel.
