Northeast Cooling’s Green Gem in Ford Transit Connect

Northeast Cooling isn’t just available for your every commercial refrigeration need night or day, from Chicago to Kenosha and all points in between, we provide the Greenest service possible. Right down to our service vehicles!

For the past year, Mitch has been primarily driving a 2010 Ford Transit Connect. Ford boasts this handy little truck as having the best fuel economy in its class. We’d have to agree. Over the past year we’ve racked up 19,500 miles and averaged 20 mpg! For us, that means using approximately 975 gallons of gasoline during the course of the year.

This is a huge savings over our ¾ ton heavy duty truck, also a Ford. We still use our Ford E250 ¾ ton van to service larger commercial refrigeration install jobs, but favor the Transit Connect for everyday use. Our E250 gets 10 mpg! That means without the addition of our new vehicle we’d have used 1950 gallons of gas this year alone! See image below.


When you consider we can, and do, have calls in Grayslake, Winnetka, Highland Park, Palatine, and Chicago all in one day, you can understand why we are singing the praises of our Ford Transit Connect! So as we drop in to service your ice machine, deliver parts for your refrigeration equipment, or replace a fuse, know that we are doing it all while being as Green as we can!
