Finding Efficiency In $4 Fuel

Case IH Magnum 340

As you’re wrapping up spring planting, we understand your first priority is getting your equipment to the field and getting it done.

Still, we expect that concern lingers in the back of your mind about rising fuel costs as you spend endless hours in the field. “Will our harvest cover these rising input costs? Will prices stay strong?”

With average U.S. diesel costs around $4 per gallon, (reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, May 30, 2011, it’s a hard issue to avoid.

While Case IH can’t do anything to lower fuel costs, we can offer you some guidance to optimize fuel efficiency as you operate your tractor. That’s why I asked John Bohnker, Case IH Marketing Manager for Magnum tractors, to provide helpful tips.

Proven Technologies Powers Case IH Equipment

Case IH high-horsepower diesel engines feature the world-class design innovation of Fiat Powertrain Technologies, a global company that makes more than 2.6 million engines every year and is a sister company of Case IH.

In last week’s blog post, Engine Ed: What’s the 4-1-1 on Case IH’s 2011 Lineup?David Stark walked us through some key features of the new Case IH engines and explained how they work together to provide Case IH’s 2011 lineup of Steiger®, Magnum, and Puma tractors with the power, performance, and fuel efficiency you need to get the job done.

With that said, I know many of you are curious about Case IH’s partnership with Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT), so I wanted to provide some background about this partnership and what it means for you.

SCR & DEF Widely Used

Q&A About Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

If you’ve heard about the new 2011 Tier 4A engine emissions requirements, you’ve probably heard mention of Diesel Exhaust Fluid aka DEF. But, you might not know a whole lot about it. Below, we’ll shed some light on DEF.

What is DEF and when will I need it?
DEF – a stable, non-toxic solution made of synthetic urea and deionized water – is a key ingredient for the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment process being utilized in model year 2011 and beyond Case IH high horsepower tractors. In combination with proven Case IH engines, this technology will improve engine power and responsiveness, fuel economy, and overall durability for Case IH Steiger®, Magnum™, and Puma™  tractors, while helping them meet 2011 EPA emissions regulations

School of Hard NOx: SCR Primer

By now, you’ve probably heard about the new federal regulations mandating cleaner, more efficient engines beginning in 2011. Maybe you’ve even heard some acronyms like SCR and CEGR and wondered what it means to you.

Listen up, class is in session!

Tier 4 emissions regulation was created to crack down on air pollutants – primarily particulate matter, which we know as soot, or unburned fuel, and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted as a by-product of an engine’s internal combustion process. Doing this requires the addition of an exhaust after-treatment system, such as Cooled Exhaust Gas Regeneration (CEGR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).  (more…)
