FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN KENYA
With global fuel prices going up high, cost of fuel has become a daily concern, and thus effective fuel usage has become the most urgent and fundamentally important in running a successful fleet operation. GPS Fuel Monitoring Tracker gives you a chance to monitor remotely where, when and how much fuel was filled into the tank by either mobile phone or internet enabled computer.
WHY MONITOR FUEL?
In most vehicle operations fuel expenses account for at least 80% of operating costs, so fuel monitoring & management is the logical approach to start in order to reach fuel efficiency. One of the many reasons why a fleet owner implements vehicle tracking system for his/her long route truck is to regain control over the losses incurred on road. And so as a first step, he/she should focus on reducing fuel wastage and catch en-route fuel theft attempts. GPS tracking devices detect the fuel amount remotely where, when and how much fuel was filled into the tank by either mobile phone or internet enabled computer. There are many factors that help us solve this problem of reaching optimal fuel use, and knowing these factors on real-time at all levels is important if real improvement is to be made;
Real time fuel level monitoringUnmonitored vehicles are left vulnerable to fuel theft, and the surveillance of fuel tank level in Real-time becomes critical to catching thieves in their act. STOIC FUEL TRACKER is able to monitor fuel in the tank as clock time ticks and wherever the vehicle is.
Fueling controlLet the fuel vouchers/bills your drivers bring be kept aside, those are easy to manipulate. The fact is, you clearly should have an idea about fuel refill volume on your trucks, i.e., what volume of fuel was refilled, at what time, where was it filled etc. Apply fueling restrictions on your fleet which in turn would reduce usage, theft, abuse and wastage.
- Alerts on refuel & siphoning by SMS/Mobile & Email.
- Alarms can be pre-set to alert you of high/low fuel levels.
- Refuel & siphoning locations shown on map.
- Reports on refuel & siphoning
Information on raising or lowering the level of fuel comes from fuel level sensor (car’s own fuel sensor or extra fuel level sensor), and GPS tracking system determines the location and time. The volume of fueling is determined using the calibration table that is either in a terminal of vehicle tracking system, or either in the software of vehicle tracking system.
Actual Engine consumption rateGPS tracking device gains fuel consumption data directly from the vehicle movement against fuel used over a certain distance. The tracking device achieves this over a period of one month and thereafter able to give accurate consumption rate of the vehicle. With fuel monitoring graph of the software, users can easily view the fuel consumption when, where and why, so as to detect violations of technology, such as decreasing of duration of heating burners. Fuel tracking provides exact information about real fuel consumption and prevents fuel siphoning, fuel fraud and fuel over consumption.
Fuel theft control is carried out technically similarly to fueling control. GPS tracking device installed on vehicle receives data about changes of fuel level in the tank from the fuel level sensor. User of the tracking device knows about the unauthorized fuel draining almost immediately.
