The system designed to augment diesel engine systems. Morrow said his company had just finished a test on Boeing trucks that showed an 18 percent mileage increase and significantly lower emissions.

The Vehicle Maintenance Management Conference (VMMC) is an industry educational conference sponsored by the University of Washington for the vehicle maintenance industry.

It started on Tuesday, March 22, and will continue on Wednesday and Thursday, March 23-24. One day and partial reservations are possible.

The conference is in its 60th year but this is its first time at Shoreline Community College, which boasts a world-class Professional Automotive Training Center.  The College is located at 16101 Greenwood Ave North, Shoreline, WA 98133-5696.

The 60th VMMC features full days of training with indoor and outdoor displays, keynote speakers each morning prior to sessions, certification courses, a Tech Challenge, technician and management roundtables, and a closing general session with awards.

There are in-depth technical presentations, and open panel discussions featuring experts in the field. The Technicians' roundtable discusses problem-solving techniques and the Management roundtable discusses issues common to public and private fleets. There are multiple sessions for technical and supervisory professionals at all levels, and equipment and product exhibits.

Participants will gain knowledge about new engine designs, fuel saving practices, hybrid technologies, shop management and more, while they network with industry leaders and trainers and test their skills at the Tech Challenge.

"The continued success of VMMC is bringing together participants to learn and network from experts and peers in the vehicle maintenance and management industry."
