The Cat Fuel Edge Program guarantees you fuel efficiency when you purchase a qualifying a Cat® machine with Product Link™ enabled, i.e. Cat Next Gen Excavators. It provides this guarantee by giving you a parts credit back if your new machine burns more than the committed fuel consumption threshold. In simple terms, if your machine burns more fuel than promised, you get Cat parts.
How does the program work?
Prior to purchase, you elect to be part of the Cat Fuel Edge Program and agree to Fuel Edge Program Terms ("Program Terms").
You purchase a qualifying machine.
Via Product Link™, Caterpillar and WesTrac will monitor your new machine's fuel consumption (by agreeing to Program Terms, you provide consent for this to occur).
If the machine's fuel consumption exceeds the threshold, you will be issued Cat parts credit automatically for each litre of fuel your machine has consumed above the set threshold.
As an example, Cat Next Gen Excavators offer up to 25% reduced fuel consumption when compared against previous models. This is not a bold claim, it's a promise and statement Caterpillar is standing by, which is why the Cat Fuel Edge program exists.
If you purchased a Next Gen Excavator and weren't seeing a reduction in fuel consumption, the Fuel Edge program would kick in and you'd be reimbursed with Cat parts credit.
What is the threshold for each qualifying machine?
By choosing to participate in the Cat Fuel Edge Program, if you use more fuel than the committed consumption threshold, we'll credit you! We've put the threshold for all qualifying machines in a table.
The Cat Fuel Edge Program is only available for a limited time. To ensure you are seeing savings when it comes to fuel, we recommend signing up to participate in the program if you are going to buy an eligible new Cat machine.
