There are six essential components to our onsite fuel management: the tank, the pump, the tank gauge, the fuel management system, the fuel access device and the software.
All of our solutions cover the three main steps of fuel management:
Step 1: Measuring tank stock levels
When fuel is delivered to a site, the amount of fuel transferred from the delivery tank to the onsite fuel storage tank is measured using an electronic tank gauge. This data is automatically fed in to the fuel management system and provides a clear picture of the current tank stock. The gauges can also carry out leak detection analysis.
Step 2: Identifying drivers & vehicles
Whenever a vehicle is refuelled, the fuel dispensed is monitored and accounted for. The dispensing equipment interfaces with the Fuel Management System and drivers can be identified by using a non contact tag, Kisskey or PIN number.
Step 3: View clean data reports
These fuelling transactions are presented by Triscan’s Odyssey™ World software; a unique web-based interface with a series of dashboards that provide the user with as much or as little information about their fleet as required. Typically, operators use the software to gain an understanding of their fuelling costs and view a detailed breakdown of fuel stock consumption by user, vehicle and site. Odyssey World™ also highlights potential areas of concern, such as a sudden drop in fuel stocks – and generates reports with suggestions regarding how to achieve a higher level of fuel efficiency.
Secure and robust, the Apollo 2™ has been built as a sleek, modular-type system with durability in mind. The Apollo 2™ integrates seamlessly with Triscan’s Odyssey World™ software to give users a real-time* overview of fuel consumption by driver or vehicle.
Specifically designed to help existing customers migrate to our latest, real-time software application, Odyssey World™. We’re always on the lookout for ways to improve our product offering and make things easier for you. That’s why we’ve invested our resources into developing the ApolloR2, a low – cost upgrade to your existing fuel management system.
What is a fuel management system?
A fuel management system is a combination of hardware and software products that together maintain, control and monitor fuel consumption and stock in any type of industry that uses transport, as a means of business.
Fuel management systems are designed to effectively measure fuel consumption and fuel storage across any industry using transportation. The systems are typically used for large fleets of commercial vehicles or within companies and governing bodies that want to keep on top of fleet logistics and monitor costs. However any vehicle that requires fuel to operate, including aircraft, water and railway vehicles, benefit from using a fuel management system to take control of fuel stores, security and access.

Why do I need a fuel management system?
Fuel represents one of the highest costs of running a fleet – in some sectors it accounts for over 40% of the operating cost of a vehicle. As prices continue to escalate and green issues climb ever higher on the agenda, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to manage fuel usage. The difficulty lies not only in collating information but also in having the confidence of its accuracy and the ability to interpret it easily.
A fuel management system ensures that all fuel coming to, stored on and leaving the businesses site is measured accurately. It enables all discrepancies to be quickly highlighted with short deliveries, leaks and theft addressed quickly.
