Apparently the Series 60s were exceptionally good on fuel in their day. How do they stack up today? I also heard that hp for hp, a Cat will out-torque a Cummins and use less fuel doing it. I know for sure they're 100 times more pleasant to work on than a Cummins.

My cummins is a freight train and neither Cat comes close. Absolutely in love with my cummins but they last half as long lol

The S60 of the old is still unbeatable. Honestly my old 93 freighty with double on will get 2.2kms to a litre and my others are all around 1.7-1.8.

Maybe different classes of engine fare better than others, a lot of drivers reckoned a C12 would drink less than an M11 and the torque was noticeably better (maybe they didn't need to wring their necks, and that's why they drank less). We're talking only 325 hp class on single tanker trailer rigs (Freightliners and Louisvilles), all probably outdated nowdays. Your rigs are a few steps up from that, different kettle of fish.

 

Good old Detroits.... They really were ahead of their time. We had a weird-arse Freightliner with a lifter/borer on the back that sounded a bit strange come into the yard. It was from another depot. I thought "that can't be a six", and sure enough, stuck my head under the guard and saw 4 branches on the exhaust manifold. Yep... A Detroit 60 4-banger! Wasn't a small truck either.

2.2 to the km is exceptional. That's about what 40 to the hundred? Our Euro-5 Isuzus with wussy 7.8l and 270 hp get about 60l/100 km but they're autos, do mostly suburban work and run stationary all day with PTOs running EWPs on the back.

Its is about 45 to the hundred yep. Got a mate with a bonneted volvo and it has a 600hp cummins signature mated to a volvo box. He gets 2.3 with a triple and around 3.2 with a double. Its mental and im very jelous haha.

C12 vs M11 the C12 will win in torque and economy definately haha
