Use Green Best Practices While Driving Your Food Truck
Even if no one gets hurt in a fender bender, how green is it to get a new bumper or have your truck re-painted or re-wrapped? As a general rule of thumb, keep your engine speeds between 1,200 – 3,000 RPMs, and up-shift between 2,000 – 2500 RPMs (if applicable). Also, drive wise and minimize unnecessary miles by doing errands in in your truck. Use your personal vehicle (which in almost every case will be much more green than your truck) to drive anywhere other than the commissary or your next truck stop.
