Running cost

In the illustrated example, no less than 93% of the total cost of ownership is fuel. This means the
engine’s fuel consumption will show much more than the purchase cost on the bottom line. Thanks
to the latest in electronic engine management, Volvo Penta engines achieve greater fuel efficiency
than ever before. In addition, the temperature-controlled fan, which is integrated into the engine
management system and only engaged when needed, which can save an additional 5% on fuel.

Imagine how much, a lower fuel cost, would effect the TCO and what the customer would earn with
a fuel efficient Volvo Penta engine. With innovative engineering and new materials and techniques
Volvo Penta will continue to develop more fuel efficient engines in the future, not only to meet new
emission legislations throughout the world, but to stay true to our green commitment.
