Fuel Management 

Remote Monitoring – Video Recording – Status Monitoring – Reports

FUEL MANAGEMENT

Managing fuel is like managing money. Like any other company expense, it needs to be constantly monitored and managed to ensure that no fuel is stolen, that the company can assess the value of the trip taken, and lastly create comprehensive reports on company expenses.

What is fuel monitoring

 

With technology and management systems improving, so does the need for constant administrative control, especially when dealing with large fleets. All systems can accommodate up to 2 fuel tanks simultaneously

  • A light motor vehicle uses around 10 litres per 100km. (10km to the litre)
  • Heavy Goods vehicles can use up to 50 litres per hundred km. (2km to the litre)
  • For a company to remain viable many long haul trucks drive up to 10 hours a shift.
  • This could easily mean fuel usage of 400 litres per day.
  • The usage would translate to a conservative estimate R120 000+ per month.
  • This in turn translates to over R1.2 million per year.
  • Remember fuel is a commodity
  • Even a tiny loss of 1% on a HGV would mean losses of R12 000 a year.
  • In reality the losses can be much greater if we consider all the risks transport faces today.
  • Another more serious problem can be under estimating the fuel used to do a delivery.
  • This can result in massive under quoting or repeated losses, which could cost you your business.

We have had the following tricks reported to us:

  • The driver is given a fixed amount of cash to add fuel. Eg R200.
  • Asks attendant for an R200 slip which is easy to obtain as there are many R200 transactions.
  • Driver tells attendant to add R150 fuel, bring R40 change and keep R10.
  • Losses on a light motor vehicle doing 100km/day will add up to R8110 per year.
  • Your drivers could be using the petrol tank as his personal ATM.
  • The slip will indicate the actual fuel dispensed
  • But does it all go in your tank?
  • Is it syphoned out later?
  • Is a drainage system used?
  • Works in conjunction with IQTech FMS Software
  • Gives you a fuel information on your logbook
  • Updates via SMS of fuel theft or fuel added
  • Map indication of where fuel was added or removed
  • Graph of fuel for the day

How Does it Work

 

A Fuel Tank Level Sensor (TLS) fitted to the tank and an IQTech device fitted to the vehicle/bowser. TLS connects to the IQTech system which in turn provides the user with fuel information provided by the system.

A STEP UP FROM VEHICLE TRACKING

The Remote Monitoring system is designed to be a highly accurate fuel measuring system that updates to an online server continuously. Customers are kept in the loop via SMS and server information to monitor theft, fills and low fuel levels. The online system has multiple reports to show fuel usage over days, weeks or even months.
Fuel monitoring is used on both vehicles as well as fuel bowsers with the components for vehicle fuel monitoring being much the same as the vehicle tracking but with the addition of the fuel probes and the harness

BOWSER FUEL MEASURING

The fuel measuring system used for bowsers are marginally different from regular vehicle fuel monitoring as it has
specific parts needed, such as a (from left to right) fuel monitor, fuel monitor, flow meter, valve, and a tag ID
