FUEL COST ($)
FUEL COST: Enter the current average fuel purchase price per gallon.

How it's used: The Tire Life Cycle Cost calculation includes the cost of fuel used to overcome tire rolling resistance. In order to project actual impact on your operating costs, it is necessary to consider the current cost of fuel for your fleet.
AVG. VEHICLE FUEL ECONOMY (MPG)
AVG. VEHICLE FUEL ECONOMY: Enter your average annual mpg (miles per gallon) for the type of vehicle being compared.

How it's used: The average mpg per truck is utilized to determine current fuel usage and project fuel and mpg savings per truck per year.
TARGET NUMBER OF FUELTECH
RETREADS PER CASING
TARGET NUMBER OF FUELTECH
RETREADS PER CASING
ANNUAL VEHICLE TRAVELING DISTANCE (MILES)
ANNUAL VEHICLE TRAVELING DISTANCE: Enter your average annual miles for the type of vehicle being compared.

How it's used: The average miles per year per truck is multiplied by the savings per mile to obtain the total annual savings per truck per year.

4 The Bridgestone R283 Ecopia, M710 Ecopia, and R197 Ecopia, in size 295/75R22.5, are compared to the equivalent size of Goodyear G399 LHS FM, G305 AT LHD FM, and G316 LHT FM and the equivalent size of Michelin XZA3+, XDA Energy, and XTA Energy; and the Bandag B710 FuelTech and B197 FuelTech compared to Goodyear G305 and G314 and Michelin XDA2 23 and XT1 AT. Results are based in part on third party SAE J1269 rolling resistance tests. Actual on road results may vary.

Life Cycle Cost Calculator
Lower costs. Greener returns. Based on rolling resistance and field mileage tests, Bridgestone Ecopia and Bandag FuelTech are our most fuel-efficient and lowest total cost of ownership tire and retread solution. Combining proprietary low rolling resistance technology with the industry's most retreadable casing, Ecopia and FuelTech can help reduce fuel use and extend tire life for lower costs and greener returns, when compared to other Bridgestone tires.

The Bridgestone R283 Ecopia, M710 Ecopia, and R197 Ecopia, in size 295/75R22.5, were compared to the equivalent size of Goodyear G399 LHS FM, G305 AT LHD FM, and G316 LHT FM and the equivalent size of Michelin XZA3+, XDA Energy, and XTA Energy. Results obtained from third party laboratory SAE J1269 rolling resistance test.
BASys data from over two million Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin brand casings recorded between June 2009 and November 2010 prove that Bridgestone had the lowest percentage of tires that could not be retreaded due to conditions relating to casing construction.
Based on EPA SmartWay rolling resistance to fuel savings ratio. Actual results may vary.
5%, 9% and 10% above is the weighted average of the first two lines of data.
