  1. Mileage Improvement Program Location: Gainey Transportation Services Dates: Dec. 17, 2005 – July 31, 2006

  2. Summary Tadger Group International and Gainey Transportation Services collaborated to demonstrate the Tadger in-line fuel economy improvement technology. This testing program was an extension to the original test. This trial used a larger sample size of 34 vehicles. The test vehicles were equipped with the Tadger technology, run with revenue generating loads and both the “before Tadger” and “with Tadger” mileage was tracked using the SensorTRACS system. The tests on thirty-four different vehicles indicated across the board improvements in fuel economy.

  4. Test Procedure • Extract “before Tadger” data from SensorTRACS system for Tadger vehicles • Extract “before Tadger” data from SensorTRACS system for Control vehicles • Install Tadger on Tadger vehicles (10 min.) • Run revenue generating routes with all trucks • Extract “with Tadger” data from SensorTRACS system for Tadger vehicles • Extract “after Tadger” data from SensorTRACS system for Control vehicles • Results • The results have been documented and illustrated on the attached charts. • Additional test results for other municipalities, private industry and larger fleets is available on request or at www.tadgergroup.com

  9. Discussion & Conclusion The purpose of this portion of the test program was to validate the results from the original test by using a larger sample size. A total of 34 vehicles were monitored with and without the Tadger product installed. The results were compared against Control vehicles run over the exact same time period. The results of this test program validated the original conclusion that the Tadger is effective in improving fuel economy.
