This year, PEUGEOT took a comprehensive victory in the MPG Marathon, sponsored by Barclaycard Fuel+ in conjunction with TMC, with the all-new 208 Diesel 5-door hatchback, which covered more than 385 miles in real-world conditions, achieving an average fuel consumption of 104.5 miles per gallon. Not only was this the highest MPG of all the cars that took part in the event, it was also the 'Best Percentage Improvement' with a 29 per cent improvement over the official combined cycle economy figures.
Car economy and fuel consumption, CO2 emissions are all things we know and understand well from the automotive world. Many of us choose a new car based on these parameters. But what about equipment for the food industry? There are similar things there too, such as electricity consumption or water consumption.
This is important information to study, monitor and analyse, especially in today's realities of energy prices and the growing trend towards respect for the environment, nature and the planet we live on.
These numbers and data have a direct impact on your production costs and your bottom line. It's worth thinking about...
