Video log: Tagging along with a 10 mpg owner-operator

Updated Aug 22, 2013
Henry Albert took ownership of his Freightliner Cascadia Evolution tractor-trailer in November 2012 and logged his first 10 mpg run about a month later. Today, he routinely breaks through the 11 mpg threshold on his runs.

Overdrive Equipment Editor Jack Roberts is on the road with owner-operator Henry Albert, part of Freightliner’s Team Run Smart, trekking from  OD headquarters in Tuscaloosa, Ala., to The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas, which takes place this week.

Albert, owner of the one-truck Albert Transport, has averaged 9.5 mpg in his Freightliner Cascadia Evolution, and in the trip to Dallas, he plans on meeting or exceeding a 10 mpg average. 

In the videos below, Roberts and Albert talk about their trip and their fuel economy and Albert breaks down ways owner-operators can increase their fuel economy and help keep better track of their fuel usage.
