Pit Group to Evaluate Fuel Efficiency of 5 Tire Brands

By Team Writer / June 10, 2017

Pit Group made the announcement that a focus of their studies this year will be on the effects on the efficiency of fuel consumption utilizing five different tire brands. Testing will occur in Canada sometime in the month of June; the brands tested will include BF Goodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, and Michelin brand tires. Pit Group is known for the research that they conduct in North America to improve efficiency and operational maintenance.

Key Takeaways:

  • During Energotest, tires from BF Goodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, and Michelin will undergo a series of fuel economy tests using stringent protocols to measure the performance of each tire.
  • Each member lists issues they are facing and our engineers create a list of potential items to test.
  • Type III testing will test each tire on several identical vehicles, by switching tires from one test vehicle to another between tests, to clearly measure the impact on fuel consumption.
