Fuel-Saving Exhaust System for Truck Fleets
Borla, Oxnard, Calif., and Alphabet Energy, Hayward, Calif., formed a non-exclusive partnership to deliver what is said to be the industry’s first aftermarket thermoelectric fuel-efficiency product for vehicle internal combustion engines.
Borla’s technologically-advanced exhaust systems coupled with Alphabet Energy’s PowerModule thermoelectric generator can capture 5-10% of a car or truck’s waste heat and use it to improve fuel efficiency by reducing alternator loads or replacing the alternator entirely. In fact, heat captured by a Borla exhaust and delivered to an Alphabet Energy’s PowerModule could deliver a fuel savings of 3-6%, or as much as $7,500 per year per Class 8 truck.
