Volvo Innovation

Common Rail Fuel System

The unique design of Volvo’s common rail fuel system delivers multiple benefits. Finer control allows quicker, more accurate fuel injection for improved fuel economy.

Turbo Compounding

For applications operating primarily at cruise speed, Volvo’s D13TC uses turbo compounding to recover lost energy. A secondary exhaust turbine can improve fuel economy by up to 6.5%.


Increasing fuel efficiency saves money for truck owners and reduces their environmental impact. Volvo is a partner with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in the SmartWay® tractor program.
