Improve Fuel Economy With OBD2 Vehicle Tracking Monitors

ZVL1_FrontR-Prova_1smallMonitoring your fleet vehicles with the VHM OBD-II vehicle monitor can improve your fleet's fuel economy by helping you identify gas guzzling vehicles, reduce engine idle times and reduce fuel consumption.

Outside of keeping your fleet cars and trucks well maintained the single most important method to control and reduce fleet fuel consumption is through driver behavior management.   OBD-2 vehicle monitors track and report driver behavior issues that impact fuel economy and Fleet Genius notifies you of drivers who waste fuel through idling and speeding.

REDUCE ENGINE IDLING TIME TO REDUCE FUEL WASTE AND LOWER FUEL COSTS

Most organizations know how much fuel they use every year but very few understand how much of the fuel has been wasted through excessive idling.  Monitoring and preventing excessive idling can save thousands of dollars of fuel expense every year.

Fleet Genius fleet management software monitors the information collected by the VHM OBD-2 fleet monitors on idle time per trip,  The system collects every idle event over 1 second and also highlights idle events that meet user-defined targets (e.g. every event over 5 minutes),

This data can then be used to identify drivers with consistently higher than target or higher than average idling times.  Most GPS fleet tracking systems can't provide this data because they never talk to the engine's computer.

REDUCING SPEEDING REDUCES FUEL USE AND SAVES COSTS AND IMPROVES SAFETY

Fleet Genius tracks driver behavior.  The fleet management software collects speeding data from your vehicles and lets you view it trip-by-trip and over time.  Your employee drivers who drive at high rates of speed are easily identified.  The California Energy Commission estimates that slowing down from 65 MPH to 55 MPH reduces fuel consumption by up to 15%.

Fleet Genius tracks vehicle speed for every trip and summarizes that information trip-by-trip.  Identifying the time your drivers spend driving over 55 MPH and correcting that through clear business policies can save 15% of your fuel costs.

Identify problem drivers who consistently speed and take remedial action to save fuel and improve driver safety.

MONITOR FUEL ECONOMY AND FUEL USE TRENDS OVER TIME TO IDENTIFY SAVINGS

Fleet Genius monitors your vehicles over time recording fuel economy information trip-by-trip from information collected from your engine's computers.  This allows you to see trends in vehicle and fleet fuel economy and nip problems in the bud.

"What gets measured gets managed."

FUEL RECEIPT TRACKING AND FUEL CARD INTEGRATION LETS YOU TRACK ALL VEHICLE EXPENSES IN ONE LOCATION

Having lots of performance information at your fingertips is important to stay on top of fuel efficiency issues. The ability to track actual fuel expenses is also critical to understanding your fleet's operation.  Thats why Fleet Genius lets you also track fuel receipts or fuel card data in addition to the fuel use information reported by your vehicle's engine.

Fleet Genius fuel receipt tracking allows you to see exactly how much fuel has been purchased by your drivers for every vehicle,  Tracking how much fuel gets put into a vehicle provides the most accurate way of tracking fuel economy over time.

Tracking fuel receipts or using fuel cards can also help uncover and reduce odometer fraud, helping you stop fuel theft. Fleet Genius's OBD-2 fleet monitors track fuel tank metrics and can identify situations where a fuel tank reading and a fuel receipt present conflicting information. Use Fleet Genius to track fuel use online and never look at receipts again.
