With fuel costs reaching unprecedented highs, fleet managers and operators are under increasing pressure to optimise fuel efficiency and keep these losses and waste to a minimum. To be able to accurately do this you need to know how much you are using.
Flowquip offer a wide range of flow meter solutions for fuel consumption measurement by monitoring fuel usage on cars, trucks and agricultural/construction machinery. Being able to accurately monitor fuel usage allows operators and fleet managers to:
Many fleet operators risk fuel theft during vehicle or stationary machinery operation. The highest percentage of fuel misuse occurs with construction, agricultural and other machines where fuel is accounted for according to engine hours. Fuel tank draining, underfilling fuel in a tank, fraud with cash vouchers and fuel cards are the most common methods of fuel theft. They can be eliminated by introducing a fuel consumption monitoring system.
Control of fuel consumption allows eliminating fuel theft in a fleet and thereby helps to reduce total fuel expenses and fleet costs.
Another important task is solved – engine operating time monitoring. That helps fleet manager to exclude inappropriate use or excessive downtime of the machinery.
Engine operation time recording also helps to shift to a performance-based pay system for drivers and operators of the equipment. That means drivers are paid for actual working time and achieved fuel economy score.
Fuel consumption measurement allows machinery-owner to recalculate fuel consumption quotas for each unit of equipment.
Our experience shows that fleets, which operate less common tractors or special vehicles, have just a general idea of the real consumption of diesel fuel. The consumption rates (quotas) approved by governmental bodies or by the company’s internal documentation is also inaccurate because they do not include influence of machinery working conditions.
The implementation of a fuel consumption control system gives fleet-owner a multi-directional economic effect:
