The cost of fuel is always a concern, and fuel savings continue to be fundamentally important in running a successful fleet operation. In most vehicle operations fuel expenses account for at least 32% of operating costs, so fuel monitoring & management is the logical place to start in order to reach fuel efficiency.
There are many factors that influence fuel consumption, and knowing these factors at all levels is important if real improvement is to be made.
One of the many reasons why a fleet owner implements vehicle tracking system for his/her long route truck is to regain control over the losses incurred on road. And so as a first step, he/she should focus on reducing fuel wastage and catch enroute fuel theft attempts.
Unmonitored vehicles are left vulnerable to fuel theft, and the surveillance of fuel tank level becomes critical to catching thieves in their act. Subscribe to AVLView fuel monitoring system with vehicle tracking, you won’t be disappointed.
Let the fuel vouchers/bills your drivers bring be kept aside, those are easy to manipulate. The fact is, you clearly should have an idea about fuel refill volume on your trucks, ie., what volume of fuel was refilled, at what time, where was it filled etc.
Apply fuelling restrictions on your fleet which in turn would reduce usage, theft, abuse and wastage.
With AVLView fuel monitoring system, wasted fuel will be a thing of the past. You can monitor, analyse fuel refilling and consumption even without using additional accessories like fuel sensor rods. Those who use spreadsheet would find this feature handy.
You may upload fuel refill data on a spreadsheet directly to the platform. Once uploaded, fuel logs are created and the fuel expenses are e-logged.
