Do Ute Service Bodies Impact Fuel Efficiency?

Are you concerned about a service body affecting the fuel efficiency of your ute? Do you want to know how much extra it might cost you in terms of fuel? Following is everything you wanted to know about the impact of a ute service body on fuel efficiency.

First and foremost, it goes without saying that any additional weight on your vehicle or ute is going to affect its fuel efficiency. More weight means less fuel efficiency but things are not as simple as they seem. 

When you get a service body for your vehicle and you add on the additional weight of the things that you will be carrying in that service body, it will bring down the fuel efficiency of your ute. However, eventually, it will save you money as you won’t have to make multiple trips to get the things you need for the job. 

Without a service body, you might be forced to make multiple trips to get tools and materials. Simply put, the fuel efficiency will go down in absolute terms but in relative terms, you will save money with the right service body as you will operate more efficiently.

Customised Service Bodies

Perhaps, the biggest benefit of having a service body for your ute is that it can be completely customised as per your specific requirements. For instance, the service body for a plumbing company will have completely different requirements compared to the service body for an electrician. Professional companies specialising in designing and manufacturing customised service bodies for various industries can create a design to meet your specific requirements.
