How to Maximize Your Fuel Savings this Fall Season
Posted on 09/30/2014 by Adrienne Sallerson | 0 Comments
Along with dropping temps, the fall season has also brought with it a decline in gas prices. And as we get deeper into the season, we can expect to see an even greater reduction in prices at the pump. In fact, many will be able to purchase fuel for under $3 a gallon in November, which hasn’t happened since fall of 2010. And according to GasBuddy.com, this downward trend could last for another four years.
For those running a fleet, this means less money spent on one very expensive operating cost. But your fuel savings don’t have to stop there. Fleet tracking technology provides a number of tools that help reduce fuel consumption and spend. Here are just a few features you can use to maximize your company’s fuel savings this fall season:
- Efficient Routing: Did you know that 368 million gallons of gas were consumed each day in the U.S. in 2013? Fleet management technology can create the shortest routes for your drivers and re-route them on the fly to avoid traffic congestion, reducing fuel usage.
- Idle Reports & Alerts: Americans waste 3.8 million gallons of gas per day through idling. With idle reports and alerts, you can pinpoint and reduce excessive vehicle idling within your fleet and save more.
- Fuel Card Integration: Finding the right fuel card can save you up to 15% on fuel. By integrating your fuel card data into a fleet tracking solution, you can monitor transaction data and eliminate abusive purchases.
