Truck: 2004 IHC 4300, DT466
3200 gal. bulk tank
Stats: went from 6.8 to 8.8mpg

“The Red Rooster has increased our fuel mileage
by 20% and the increased horsepower is an extra
bonus. Operating a bobtail with propane as part of
the fuel source is a great feeling along with the
great support from the ACME staff.”

TRI-GAS Distributing Testimonial


Truck: 2003 Freightliner FL70 M2, Mercedes, 6.4L 3000 gal. bulk tank
Stats: went from 6 to 8mpg

“This is the smallest motor in our fleet, at 230hp it is a bit of
a dog when my 3000 gallon tank is full, with the Red
Rooster the truck performs more like our other trucks which
are rated at 250hp. Spool-up time is much quicker also hold-

ing engine RPMs up steep hill has improved a lot. We’ve
had the Red Rooster for over 2-years and it runs great.”
