What are Engine Hours?
Engine hours, also known as operating hours or run time, is the total amount of time that an engine has been in operation. It’s a measure of how long an engine has been running (whether the vehicle is moving or idling), generally expressed in hours.
Using a fleet management system to track engine hours helps to track maintenance schedules, service intervals and overall usage of engines.
