Commercial trucks weighing more than five tons will be prohibited from traveling between Exit 13 and Exit 22 on I-95 in Philadelphia from Saturday, July 23 at noon until midday Friday, July 29.

In addition, movement of all superloads (loads greater than 201,000 lbs, 16′ wide or 160′ long) will be suspended in Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties during the same period.

The following are the posted detours that PennDOT recommends trucks take:

•From I-95 North: Route 291 (Penrose Avenue) east, to 26th Street, to I-76 West, to I-676 east

The site is accessible from both desktop and mobile interfaces.

Better MPG Through Maintenance – Tech Tip Tuesday

Better MPG Through Maintenance
Preventive maintenance can help improve fuel economy. Here are 8 steps to improve your MPG:

Use data to identify possible problems.“If we suspect a truck is having mpg problems, we will schedule it in for what we call a fuel economy check,” says Bill Bliem, senior VP, fleet services, for New Jersey-based NFI. “This includes valve and overhead adjustment, air filter minder check, alignment, fuel flow, etc.”
Take care of your tires.Maintaining correct air pressure in tires equates to fuel savings. For every 10 psi of under-inflation, a 10% reduction in fuel economy can result, according to NACFE. Improper wheel alignment can rob fuel efficiency by creating rolling resistance and also cause premature tire wear.“The biggest thing we do maintenance wise and our biggest fuel economy pick up is tire pressure and alignment,” Bliem says.
Change your oil.Too little or too much engine oil can create more friction and rob power. Clean oil lubricates better than dirty oil, so pay attention to oil change intervals. Explore the use of lower-viscosity oils to improve fuel economy. Gerry Mead, senior VP of maintenance for Chattanooga-based U.S. Xpress, recommends oil intervals based on your fleet’s operations. “OEMs set a limit, but is that limit good for your operation and type of oil?” he notes. “Oils break down and that takes away from its properties to cut down on wear. As oils break down they are less fuel-efficient. We have a zero overdue mentality.”
Let the engine breathe. A restricted air intake system (air filter, air cooler, and tubing) or exhaust system will decrease engine power output. Check components at regular PMs and fix any leaks. These leaks can be particularly hard to find, as leaking air is not as […]

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc., distributor of low-cab-forward trucks, announced that the 30,000th gasoline-powered Isuzu N-Series truck has been produced at the Spartan Motors, Inc. facility in Charlotte, Mich. The truck rolled off the line on Friday, June 10, 2016.

“Last April, we announced that our partners at Spartan Motors had produced their 20,000th gas-powered Isuzu truck in only four years. Now, only a year later, we celebrate another 10,000 trucks produced,” said Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “The demand for gasoline-engine low-cab-forward trucks is growing, and we’re the only brand able to meet that need. But we couldn’t do it without the performance and reliability of our Isuzu N-Gas truck and the tremendous build quality of the finished product, thanks to Spartan.”

Assembly of Isuzu N-Series gas trucks began at Spartan in April 2011.

Isuzu N-Series gas trucks are powered by a Vortec 6.0L small-block V-8 engine that produces 297 hp at 4,300 rpm and generates 372 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. The powerplant is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lock-up torque converter for enhanced fuel economy and performance.

An optional version of the engine is capable of being converted to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or propane).

A full range of gasoline-powered models is available:
