Optimize your fuel spend to increase profitability with NexTraq.
When running a business with a fleet, one of your largest operational costs is your fuel spend. And while it’s an unavoidable expense, when your drivers waste fuel through excessive idling, it increases your fuel consumption and the wear and tear on your vehicles, which will have a negative impact on your bottom line.
To avoid unnecessary idling and maintenance costs, you need an effective platform that will help you improve your fuel economy and monitor driver behaviors. With NexTraq fuel management solutions, you can prevent idling and save a gallon per day to optimize your fuel spend and increase your profitability.
NexTraq® – a MICHELIN® group company – is the perfect mobile workforce management partner to help you enhance fleet visibility and productivity.
The Ins and Outs of Idling
Throughout the workday, there are instances where idling is completely acceptable. These include waiting in traffic or when the engine is powering auxiliary equipment. However, when your employees sit in their trucks with the air conditioning on during their lunch break, that’s when real fuel waste happens. Even though it might seem innocent, over time this practice can lead to a big hit on your budget.
The Cost of Excessive Idling
One hour of idling has the potential to use up to a gallon of gas. And since many fleet vehicles average two hours of idling per day, this can cause your fuel consumption to skyrocket. Along with increased spending at the pump, excessive idling also puts undue wear and tear on your vehicles’ engines, exhaust systems and spark plugs, which will drive up your maintenance costs.

With NexTraq fuel management solutions, you can control your fuel economy and track driver behavior to minimize idling to make the most out of your resources.
