Don-Bur Hold Their First Fuel Saving Forum


forum 2Entitled 'Fuel Is Costing Us The Earth', Don-Bur has just hosted its first fuel saving forum on 16th September at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent.

The purpose of the forum was to lift the shroud of mystery from what is considered a complex and somewhat misunderstood topic. Too many unregulated and unverified claims are being made by many manufacturers, which are making decision making processes difficult among those who are serious about reducing their fuel consumption.

98 delegates attended, including some of the most senior decision makers for our premier operators throughout Britain.





Speaker Company & Position Topic
Justin Stanton Editor, Commercial Motor Chair
John Evans Manager, Engines & Fuels: SMMT How Is Your Fuel Consumed?
Tony Pain Marketing Director: DAF Trucks The Importance Of Tractor Unit Efficiency
Andy Richardson Sales & Technical Director: Don-Bur Trailer Design
Angus Lock Principal Engineer, Aerodynamics: MIRA Aerodynamics Relating To Commercial Vehicles
Dan Lamb Technical Manager: Michelin Understanding The Impact Of Rolling Resistance
Dan Rapson Principal Consultant: AEA SAFED Driver Training: The Role The Driver And Inertial Resistance Has To Play
Scott Hardy Project Manager: Freight Best Practice Benchmarking To Measure & Improve Your Fuel Performance
Ian MacAulay Innovation Manager: DHL Supply Chain The Challenge Of Introducing New Technology To An Operation
Ray Collington Fleet Engineer: John Lewis Reducing Fuel: The Fleet Engineers Perspective

Perhaps surprisingly, Don-Bur did not take centre stage and considerable time and effort was taken to ensure a specialist speaker list to discuss all areas of fuel consumption and how we can viably reduce it.

In addition to discussing a subject, critical to the success of British transport, Don-Bur also took the opportunity to launch the Teardrop™ MK2.
