Original Fuelscoop design gaining ground in Chile

Fuelscoop, an aerodynamic device developed in Australia in the early 1980s, is currently experiencing a renaissance in South America. 

According to producer Aerotrans, the original design that was tested in the RMIT wind-tunnel back in 1983 has found a niche in Chile, where it is sold via a local distributor.

“It was selected as being just the right product to fulfil the goals of a government-backed initiative to assist transport businesses reduce the use of fuel on older rigid trucks operating in regional areas,” said Aerotrans’ Nigel Fletcher.

“This is the first step in a renewed drive by Aerotrans to develop export markets particularly for its aerodynamic product lines – marketed within its Aeroz-Products brandline business.”
