How Cat Innovation Improves Fuel Efficiency

The Caterpillar team is always at work, constantly looking for ways to make our products more powerful, durable, and fuel-efficient. Here are a few fuel efficiency innovations we’re integrating across our product line.

  • Power-Dense Engines increase machine performance in a lighter-weight package, cutting fuel burn and reducing emissions.
  • Automatic Engine Idle Shutdown turns off the engine during idle periods, eliminating unnecessary excess usage.
  • Economy Mode allows you to run your machine at a lower output, reducing maximum engine speed and decreasing fuel consumption up to 6%.
  • Load-Sensing Hydraulics automatically reduce heat generation and redirect the flow of fuel based on operating conditions.
  • Energy Recovery Systems store and capture excess hydraulic energy for later use, reducing fuel burn without affecting performance.
  • Electro-Hydraulic Joystick Controls are designed to be quick and intuitive, increasing work efficiency and decreasing overall fuel usage.
  • Productivity and Equipment Management Systems give you streamlined data, allowing you to record performance, measure progress, and achieve your business goals.
