Schnucks Boosts Fleet Fuel Efficiencies with Proprietary Diesel Blend

ST. LOUIS -- Following a successful four-month field trial that demonstrated the efficacy of a proprietary fuel performance enhancement, Schnuck Markets, Inc. here is transitioning entirely to International Fuel Technology, Inc.'s (IFT) DiesoLIFT 10 for use in its entire distribution fleet.

During the field trial of the performance enhancement product, Schnucks realized an overall fuel economy improvement of greater than 6 percent in its fleet of approximately 100 trucks.

"With such a large fleet, we are constantly seeking ways to reduce fuel consumption, cut back on emissions, and make our fleet more efficient," said Steve Carroll, Schnucks' director of transportation. "IFT's DiesoLIFT technology has provided a significant boost to our fleet's overall fuel economy, which translates to immense savings on our annual fuel costs that can then be passed on to our customers."

"At Schnucks, we constantly monitor fuel economy data for our fleet using our computer-based fuel management system, which enabled us to accurately track the effect of DiesoLIFT 10 on the fuel consumption of each individual truck," said Kevin Redell, Schnucks' fleet maintenance manager. "The results we have seen since implementing DiesoLIFT 10 in our fleet have been remarkable."

Schnuck Markets, Inc. operates 101 stores (including five Logli stores) and 98 pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
