A description of a device called a "fuel saver," which optimizes the fuel consumption of MU locomotives, is given. This is achieved by maintaining only the minimal number of locomotives at the optimal throttle position while maintaining the throttle of the other units at position No. 1. Potential improvements in fuel efficiency of 5% to 17% are claimed.
