EURO 6

HeavyTorque Issue 1 - Euro 6

A DONE DEAL

THE MUCH-VAUNTED EURO 6 EMISSIONS REGULATIONS ARE NOW WITH US, AND THEY ARE THE ONLY SHOW IN TOWN. WITH OVER SIX MONTHS OF ON-THE-ROAD EXPERIENCE IN THE UK, AND A LOT MORE IN EUROPE, IAN NORWELL LOOKS AT HOW THE MAIN PLAYERS APPROACHED THE ISSUE AND WHERE THEY AGREE TO DIFFER

FOG OF WAR

With the completion of various European press tests of trucks equipped with Euro 6 engines, it’s become clear that fuel economy is not the worry it was perceived to be a couple of years ago. Taking the major players’ vehicles on independent tests, the top and bottom performers have consistently been separated by as little as 0.5mpg. These figures are so close that the vagaries of testing may well have produced a different result on another day. But what these figures do tell us is that fuel consumption has not been a casualty of Euro 6. It’s also true that the latest emission legislation is not just about engines – a lot of other improvements have hitched a ride to fog the landscape, with transmissions being the most influential.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
