Fuel Saving – Ecosafe Green Box Solution™
Fuel friendly driving – Control, limit, reduce, save
Ecosafe Green Box Solution™ once installed, restricts maximum engine revolutions and ultimately, a vehicle’s speed. We install the most efficient settings or if preferred, the customer’s required settings. It stops harsh and heavy acceleration of a vehicle – simulating safe and fuel efficient driving without the need for training. The benefits are proven and Ecosafe can demonstrate numerous projects and scenarios that have saved customers money.

Ecosafe Green Box Specifications
We restrict the maximum Revs Per Minute (RPM) to our recommended or customer’s requirements. Combining this with our throttle control means we remove the ability to unnecessarily over rev the vehicle’s engine beyond what is needed. This encourages earlier gear shifting – the higher the gear the more fuel is saved.
These days standard speed limiting is a common practice for most fleets which is a service we include, however part of the service we can offer is Smart Switch Speed Control™. Changing on-the-move: Speed zones can be be programmed into the unit on the installed vehicle which restricts the maximum speed of the vehicle when it enters or leaves a pre-set perimeter. For example a pre-set speed limit zone can be programmed around an area such as a speed sensitive depot; as soon as an installed vehicle enters this area the speed limit of the vehicle automatically changes to the pre-programmed speed limit. Please note, this feature only works in conjunction with vehicles already installed with telematics. For emergency services, highway agencies or vehicles of similar type we can provide Smart Switch Speed Control™ to be activated or de-activated when the emergency lights are switched on or off! Telematics is not required for this feature.
This identifies each driver and sets the on-board profile for the key fob for use by multiple drivers. Key fobs can be assigned to specific drivers.
This identifies each driver and sets the on-board profile for the keyfob for use by multiple drivers. Key fobs can be assigned and programmed so the car’s restrictions are activated or disabled depending on the key fob in use. Pre-set speed limits, restrict maximum engine revs and control acceleration can be programmed.
By preventing harsh acceleration and removing the ability for aggressive driving, this can bring about considerable cost savings, as there is less wear and tear on the engine and transmission. This increases longevity of the vehicle and in theory means service schedules can be extended.
Fleet operators can be assured that whoever steps into a company vehicle no matter what their personal driving style, they will be driving in a fuel friendly manner. This gives employers reassurance and confidence that their employees are representing them well when driving and that each vehicle in their fleet is driven with equal responsibility.
The device is a fit-and-forget installation and requires no ongoing management or training costs with the ability to be removed, reconfigured and installed onto new vehicle cycles.
