Mesilla Valley Transportation
Learning about the science of fuel mileage through Innometric MPG has answered questions we’ve had for a long time, and that’s been a big help too. It explained why the SAE test numbers varied so much and we saw firsthand how critical it is to have the kind of equipment and experience Innometric MPG has. We don’t even bother anymore with real-world testing in day-to-day operation to measure fuel savings, we can test in a few hours with Innovative Fuel Solutions, know the numbers are trustworthy, and account for variables if we need to for the fleet. It saves us a lot of time and if the part saves fuel we can decide on it right away. It used to take us months to get a number and we would still debate the results because of the variables.
We depend on Innometric MPG to help us improve our fuel mileage and with the cost of fuel in trucking these days that says a lot about how much we trust their work. The fact that Innometric MPG has been to our terminal five times in the last year and done almost eighty tests is pretty solid proof of our confidence in them.

Customer Review from Greg Peterson
Improving fuel economy is critical in any fleet today. As a division of the largest supermarket chain in the country, we’ve evaluated many products over the years, using all the different test methods; in-service evaluations, testing with 3rd party organizations, and with OEM’s and vendors. They all have their challenges and limitations. We found InnoMetric MPG testing far superior to other test methods; it is fast, reliable, and cost-effective. InnoMetric testing is also by far the easiest testing we’ve ever done. Any fleet will appreciate how quick and easy InnoMetric testing is, and the minimal disruption it has on operations.
Getting reliable answers on fuel economy is very challenging and we evaluate products thoroughly. A few years ago, our company did an extensive in-service test that included 30+ trucks and 12+ months of tracking fuel and maintenance. That took a lot of time & manpower with disputable results. In 2 days InnoMetric performed similar tests with results that made total sense. How many things can a fleet test in 2 days and get reliable answers? Prior to testing with InnoMetric, I would have said none. InnoMetric testing saves us a lot of time, frees up our manpower, and lets us find more fuel savings.
It can be hard knowing who to trust when it comes to fuel economy and we found InnoMetric is truly legitimate. There is no hidden agenda with InnoMetric, no pressure, and no false claims about product performance. Anyone that appreciates integrity will be happy with InnoMetric.
InnoMetric MPG exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them to anyone.
Testing with MVTS found us 0.86 MPG in fuel economy improvements and several million dollars in annual profits, which makes it an excellent investment with almost instant payback. That surprised us, considering we have a very modern fleet.
No one else is really doing this in the industry, it’s not SAE testing, or coast-down, or CFD. It’s our own equipment and it’s real fuel economy in a real application.
What impressed us most was that we were able to hire MVT Solutions as an independent 3rd party that produced accurate and reliable results we can make informed decisions with. I wish we did this 5 years ago but it’s never too late to make improvements going forward.
MVTS testing didn’t disrupt operations at all, which was a very nice aspect of doing it on-site. In the past, we’ve participated in other forms of testing but MVTS testing is much more convenient and our people could be more involved and engaged, which they enjoyed.
Overall, this was a very positive experience. It was easy and convenient, our people enjoyed it, and it will save us a lot of money moving forward. We plan to continue using MVT Solutions.
Certification was fast, easy and resulted in immediate sale of our product. MVTS Certification helps us when talking to fleets because they immediately recognize and trust Mesilla Valley as the industry expert on fuel economy. Instead of debating fuel savings, we get down to business.
Since Certification, MVTS has helped our sales efforts by taking our product to carriers. These are companies actively seeking fuel savings, which has proven to be a great sales opportunity.
Overall, we’re extremely pleased with MVTS Certification and its positive impact on our sales program.

I want to thank you for the fuel mileage testing InnoMetric MPG provided for us. We appreciate the extra time taken to explain the test methodology and its capabilities, we found this very thorough and insightful. As experienced engineers ourselves, we also appreciate the validity of the science and technology supporting InnoMetric testing.
We were pleased and impressed with the level of detail InnoMetric testing generated, which provided some surprising information for us. It illustrated how our previous testing may have been skewed by environmental conditions and how it is vital to use advanced data acquisition and scientific methods whenever possible. InnoMetric testing also provided solid answers that showed clearly where we should focus our attention with further developments.
We look forward to working together in the future and extend an open invitation to you whenever you are in the area.
My sincerest thanks for the fuel mileage testing provided and for the insight into the science of fuel mileage testing that has helped us progress.
