Fuel Saving Strategies

Standard Economy Mode – G Series can adjust engine power based on your individual needs. With this feature, fuel savings are achieved by reducing power between 0.15 to 15 percent.

Adaptive Economy Mode – New for G Series – requires a baseline for production from you. As the truck goes through the haul cycle, it constantly evaluates your baseline against opportunities to reduce power and save fuel. It’s fully automatic with no special operation required. • Speed Limiting – while you can continue to gear limit your G Series trucks, Caterpillar offers another alternative you can utilize which is the new speed limiting feature. Speed limiting allows the truck to travel at a more ef cient engine speed and gear selection.

Auto Neutral Idle – as the 777G waits for the loader or crusher while idling in a forward gear, the transmission will automatically slip into a neutral state to avoid stalling the torque converter and raising engine rpm. As soon as the operator releases the brake or applies throttle, the truck is instantly back in the forward gear. • Engine Idle Shutdown – when your G Series truck is in park and idles for more than a preset time, the truck will initiate engine shutdown to conserve fuel. This feature can be time adjusted or turned on or off according to your speci c needs.
