Speed Limiters: Two Sides of the Same Coin

Posted by PS Energy Group on Feb 21, 2017 10:00:00 AM


It seems that when there is a proposed rule or regulation affecting the trucking industry, there is a great amount of buzz and often two sides vehemently opposed. 

The proposed rule by the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding mandatory speed limiters on heavy trucks is no exception. In one corner you have the industry’s largest trade group, American Trucking Associations (ATA) in favor of the rule which mandates that heavy trucks—weighing more than 26,000 pounds—be fitted with electronic devices that would limit top speeds to no higher than 65 mph. They argue that reducing and regulating truck speed via the device would decrease the number of collisions on U.S. roads.

New Diesel Engine Oil Standards

Posted by PS Energy Group on Apr 26, 2016 9:59:31 AM

It’s not too early to start thinking ahead to December 1, 2016. Not because it’s both National Pie Day and Bifocals at the Monitor Liberation Day, but because December 1st is when the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) two new diesel engine oil standards—API Service Categories CK-4 and FA-4—will first appear in the API Service Symbol donut.
