Fuel management systems are used to maintain, control and monitor fuel stock in any type of industry that uses transport as a means of business.
By implementing a fuel monitoring solution you will soon see an improvement in the following areas:
- Improved fuel economy
- Reduced CO2 emissions
- Increased fleet utilisation
- Significant cost reduction potential
- Easier, simplified management of fleet and fuelling operations
With over 30 years experience as the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of Fuel Management Systems, The Triscan Group pride ourselves on our ability to deliver one, totally integrated quality solution to onsite fuel management services.
Do you need a fuel management system?
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 and 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 various identification devices such as a non contact tag, Kisskey or PIN number.
Step 3: View clean data reports
These fuelling transactions are presented by fuel management software; such as Triscan’s Odyssey™ World software which offers 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. This software 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.
When implementing a Triscan fuel monitoring solution you see an improved fuel economy, reduced CO2 emissions, increased fleet utilisation, significant cost reduction and an easier, simplified management of fleet and fuelling operations
The lack of clarity or inaccurate data input within a company’s fuelling data can result in additional time being spent on reconciling reports from other sources. The Triscan data capture, asset tracking and access security systems in conjunction with the advanced software for both fleet monitoring and fuel efficiency will provide you with the most accurate and appropriate control over your resources.
Triscan have provided solutions which are ideal for serving smaller companies with one fuel pump or companies with multiple sites such as the UK’s biggest postal operator with over 200 sites.
Simple but effective operational policies can typically report between 7% to 11% improvements in fuel usage, and this is reportedly a conservative estimate. For the average heavy goods vehicle, an improvement of around 0.5mpg can equate to a fuel saving of around £4,000 and a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of over 7,000kg per vehicle year.
