Commonly asked questions

Fleet fuel management consists of:


• Monitoring driver behaviors that can result in negative effects on fuel efficiency, such as speeding, acceleration and braking, and excessive idling
• Gaining greater control of where and when fuel is purchased
• Optimizing preventative maintenance schedules
• Using vehicle diagnostics data for proactive maintenance purposes
• Rightsizing vehicles to duty cycles
• Preventing fuel fraud by monitoring excessive fuel usage patterns

Fleet fuel management software gives you greater control over the way your drivers use and purchase fuel. It helps you identify events that are causing unnecessary fuel usage such as excessive idling or fuel theft, ultimately enabling you to reduce the cost of running your fleet

By using a fleet telematics system with fuel management capabilities, you can take control of your fuel usage and significantly reduce costs. Fleet fuel management reduces fuel costs by increasing fuel efficiency. This involves:

• Proactively mitigating the misuse of resources and cutting unnecessary fuel costs through measuring, tracking and reporting on inefficient driving habits or the breaking of company policies
• Implementing a preventative and proactive maintenance program that keeps vehicles running optimally in order to reduce excessive fuel consumption
• Controlling where and when fuel is purchased and drivers fill up, whether that’s at your depot or with fuel cards
Geotab’s fuel management system provides visibility into trends on fuel usage and fill-ups, plus access to critical engine data for proactive vehicle maintenance. It can be used to track key fuel metrics such as:

• Fuel consumption (fuel used and fuel used when idling)
• Fuel economy (the actual MPG)
• Fuel level
• True idling
• Engine faults, such as faulty oxygen sensor that reduce fuel efficiency

Fuel commonly accounts for between a quarter and a third of a fleet’s operating costs. Put simply, it is a vital element to gain control over.

Fuel management solutions, coupled with Geotab data, allow fleets to improve fuel efficiency in order to maximize cost savings. With a fuel management system in place, you can decrease wasted fuel, put a hold on stolen fuel cards, approve or decline fuel transactions and prevent abuse of resources.

Fleets can determine optimal vehicle use and cost savings using fuel management tools. You can reduce wasted fuel, put a hold on stolen fuel cards, accept or refuse gasoline transactions and prevent resource abuse with a system in place.

You may also use one central site to simply compute fuel economy and other related metrics, right-size your fleet and enhance fuel efficiency by maximising usage, locate shorter routes and advise drivers on the best areas to stop for fuel.
A fuel card, sometimes known as a fleet card, is a payment card that is often used at gas stations to pay for gasoline, diesel, and other fuels. At the option of the fleet owner or manager, fleet cards can also be used to pay for vehicle maintenance and expenses. The majority of gas cards are charge cards.
The convenient and thorough reporting that comes with using fleet cards allows fleet managers to obtain real-time reports and set purchasing limits. This allows them to remain on top of all business-related spending.
