In the current economic climate, companies are having to look for new ways to reduce costs. An ever growing cost for most organisations is fuel. At Everglade Services we have tried and tested many products to try and help companies save on their ever increasing fuel bills. There are a number of ways we can help achieve these fuel efficiency savings as outlined below:
Top Speed Limiters
For vehicles that do many miles on motor ways and dual carriage ways, a top speed limiter can dramatically reduce fuel consumption, especially if drivers are going above the speed limit. Tests have been conducted on a variety of vehicles at various speeds to see how fuel usage is related to speed. The results do vary but the common theme is that less speed = less fuel used. In most of these cases, the fitting of top speed limiters can effectively pay for themselves within just a few months. A number of our clients have reported back significant fuel savings after the installation of top speed limiters.

Engine RPM Limiters
We also offer a product that helps to reduce fuel consumption throughout the engines operating range not just at high speeds. The engine RPM limiter device can be fitted to most diesel and petrol vehicles and has shown results of between 5-25% saving on fuel bills. This product is particularly effective on HGV’s but also effective on pick-up trucks and light commercial vehicles....
