Volvo Trucks Fuelwatch Competition has been successfully held for five consecutive years with the aim of improving the fuel- saving driving skills of drivers. According to Volvo Trucks data, driving skills could impact on around 20% fuel consumption, and the number could climb to 50% when the driving behavior is incorrect. In 2013, Jiao Yipin, from Defa Logistics, was crowned. He said: "I always regard driving trucks as a livelihood, and never thought of earning an opportunity to go abroad and exchange driving experience with foreign drivers. This experience is really fantastic and beyond works. I really appreciate this opportunity provided by Volvo Trucks."  Previously, five national champions from China have been invited to participate in the final competition in Sweden and Australia, among whom Liu Jinqiang, from Zhongtie Logistics, got awarded as Volvo Trucks Asia Fuelwatch Champion 2012. Last year, as the fifth Fuelwatch Competition anniversary, the five successive champions have been invited to the award ceremony in Beijing, looking back the competition experience and cherishing the knowledge and friendship gained during the competition.

He won the competition by posting a hot article about Volvo trucks' fuel-saving skills and driving experience.
