New diesel engine-driven units reduce fuel use by as much as 30 percent, improve weld quality with difficult electrodes, and reduce weight on trucks by as much as 500 pounds. 

Wireless remotes have been adopted extensively by pipeline contractors for the ease of mobility, the lack of a cord (one less part to get damaged), and the reliability.
Floyd East discusses the fuel efficiency of the Big Blue 350 Pipe Pro.

Brownsville, Wisconsin-based Michels Pipeline Construction is contracted to build the 24-inch X70 transmission pipeline, scheduled to go into operation in September of 2012. 

Welders on the project report excellent arc quality and substantial fuel savings compared to other welder generators. 

Floyd East reports saving approximately $6-8 each day in fuel.
