    The Journal of Transportation and VerticalNews.com report that the DOE will give $54 million to Cummins, an Indiana based “corporation of complementary business units that design, manufacture, distribute and service engines and related technologies, including fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission solutions and electrical power generation systems”. Cummins will develop two projects on fuel efficiency for large and small trucks. Peterbilt Motors Company (an affiliate of PACCAR) will also be involved on the so-called Supertruck project. The Journal of Transportation says Cummins will receive “$39 million in funding to support systems level technology development, integration, and demonstration for highly efficient Class 8 trucks (SuperTruck). The Company (Cummins) will receive an additional $15 million in funding to support advanced technology powertrains for light-duty vehicles (ATP-LD).”
