    Hello! We just bout a 1985 Freightliner cabover with a plaque that says Energy Saver on it. Does anybody have an idea what this entails exactly??

    It probably has a 100 cummins in it barely able to hold 40 mph downgrade. //TEASE.

    I believe it had something to do with Cummins BC 4 350 formula (lower governed rpm) with 9-speed and 3.55 rears. Relatively new concept at that time.
    I have a stripped out ‘85 cab from one that was speced that way and it has the energy saver on the build sticker on inside of glove box door.
     
    Mbrinkman Thanks this.

    I don't remember if this was Freightliner but some if them had aluminum panels or something underneath, in an attempt to keep turbulence down or something I guess.
