Turbo Compounding Calculator

This powertrain calculator is comparing previous emission level Volvo engines to GHG 2017 engine technology.

Use this calculator to compare the cost of fuel and DEF consumption between select prior emission level Volvo trucks and a greenhouse gas (GHG) 17 Volvo technology with either the Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) or Turbo Compounding (TC) engine.  There are various powertrain setups highlighted including the XE Package (eXceptional Efficiency) and various rear axle ratios (RAR). Comparisons to previous emission years are based upon the most possible improvement for Volvo engines. All comparisons involve Volvo D13 engines.

The purpose of this Calculator is to provide you with estimated comparisons of the cost of fuel and DEF you may obtain between various Volvo vehicles equipped as described. The Calculator is a comparative tool, not a predictive tool. The comparative functions are based on information developed through field testing, cell testing, and simulation testing and results are for illustrative purposes only. Comparisons generated by the Calculator do not take into account all possible factors that may affect your actual fuel economy and DEF usage. Your actual fuel economy and DEF usage will vary depending on many factors, including actual topography, driver conditions and experience, varying load weights, just to name a few, all of which can greatly affect the actual fuel and DEF usage of any vehicle. As a result, Volvo Trucks and its affiliated companies make no representations, warranties or guarantees as to the accuracy of comparisons generated by this calculator.
