It’s a new concept, because it does several things at once. Technically, with the energy recovery turbine, backed up by a software strategy for the gearbox that is very comprehensive, I believe it’s a new concept in fuel-efficient trucks.
The difference is obvious. The driver feels the increased torque. With Turbo Compound it climbs hills differently, at lower engine revs, shifts later or not at all. It’s definitely noticeable.
This is Volvo FH with I-Save, Volvo Trucks’ most fuel-efficient truck to date. But how do you know that? Well, ask this guy. He put I-Save to the test on some of the most demanding roads in the Czech Republic. By combining the latest hardware and software, Volvo FH with I-Save can cut fuel costs […]
Siena, in the heart of Italy’s Tuscany region, is one of the great medieval cities to explore. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site. It is so well preserved that it attracts visitors by the millions and yet most people don’t spend the night here. They are visiting on a day trip, maybe three hours, half […]
The driving experience today was very good, a much bigger surprise than I thought it would be. There’s quite a dramatic change between the non-Turbo Compound version and the new one. From the first press of the accelerator, once you start moving, the extra 300 Nm of torque is delivered straight away. It’s a new […]

Skyltar och vägmarkeringar är så svåra att läsa… gissar att det är p.g.a all snö vi har här i Sverige… Bilen i högerfilen har fortfarande rött. Inte det bästa stället att stanna på! Du får inte stanna på en motortrafikled bara för att du blir […]
As in most tourist towns, there is a worthwhile bus tour of Bath that covers the main sights, although impressions of a small town like this are best gained on foot, so don’t fall into the trap of the lazy tourist and let the bus substitute for the walks through town. Bath is not very […]
What the hell? What the? oh my god
