TESTING THE IH 2375 FOR "REAL LIFE" FUEL ECONOMY

In October 1982 International Harvester claimed that a professional driver team averaged 8.26 mph with a 2375, pulling a Fruehauf F-Plus van loaded to 65,000-lb. GCVW. Fleet Owner noted those test results and wondered what fuel mileage a typical driver in a real-life situation would get if he operated a similarly spec'ed 2375 with an identical load. To find out, they made arrangements to borrow a 2375 and conduct their own evaluation. They used a total of 184 gallons for a total of 1,321 miles, a trip average of 7.2 mph.
