Reducing Fuel Consumption

The average price for a gallon of gas continues to climb, costing over $3.00 per gallon for southern Californians. With the consistent increase of gas prices, many businesses are looking for alternative ways to reduce unnecessary fuel consumption in an effort to increase profits. The solution has come with GPS tracking system technology!

The Secret Expenses Of Idling

The truth is that vehicles that are left idling for long periods of time can result in revenue lost. The American Trucking Association states that:

  • A vehicle left idling can consume over a gallon of gas every hour.
  • One hour of idling by a vehicle everyday for year will culminate in approximately 70,000 miles of vehicle engine wear-and-tear after all associated factors are added.

With the average gallon of gas costing nearly $3.00, do you know how much money you are wasting because of unnecessary idling? The chart below provides information on how much money you could be losing because of idling, providing the fuel costs associated with excessive vehicle idling.

How Coasting To Stop Can Cut Fuel Costs

Simple Tips For Better Fuel Economy

The one thing drivers and businesses with company vehicles can agree upon is that the recent spike in gasoline prices can have a substantial impact on a family budget or corporate bottom line. With gasoline prices likely to stay in the $3.00-$5.00 range for the near and medium term future, motorists are having to really evaluate their personal driving habits in an effort to reduce fuel consumption. Smart drivers have been taking simple steps such as consistently checking vehicle tire pressure and staying on top of routine maintenance to improve the fuel economy of their cars, but there are also very simple driving habits that motorists can adopt to cut fuel use. Whether a driver wants to cut fuel consumption to reduce the amount of green house gases they contribute to the environment, wear-and-tear on their automobile or to simply save a little money: by coasting into stops instead of hard breaking motorists can improve fuel economy.

Most motorists and businesses who have drivers operating mobile assets don't realize it, but simple changes to driving habits can have a direct impact on both fuel efficiency and the driver's bank account. One simple and easy technique applied by drivers concerned with fuel consumption reduction is coasting into stops in order to decelerate rather than hard break into stops. When a driver takes their foot off the gas pedal as early as possible to begin the deceleration process, most modern vehicles will then cut off the fuel going into the vehicle's engine. This is process is done through the fuel injection system and essentially results in the motorist receiving a "free ride" when the vehicle is coasting. Since no fuel is being transmitted into the fuel cylinders while the car is in a coast mode, the vehicle is able to continue moving without using any gas!

About Fuel Consumption Reduction

Fuel economy tips include practices such as investing in more fuel-efficient automobiles, combining errands to reduce excessive trips and keeping up with vehicle maintenance to enhance automobile efficiency. However, as prices at the pump continue to escalate past all-time highs, businesses and everyday people are getting no relief from rising fuel costs. In search of a technological and cost-effective way to reduce fuel consumption, businesses and consumers are now finding that allusive relief through the use of GPS monitoring devices.

Although there appears to be no short term answer for skyrocketing gas prices, GPS tracking solutions are offering a unique way for businesses and consumers to oversee driving activity in an effort to reduce fuel consumption. GPS trackers have been used successfully in fleet management applications for over a decade. This is because GPS monitoring solutions can record how fast a driver operates a vehicle, real-time position information and historical location-based data involving time en route, time departed and addresses arrived/departed. There really is no better way to determine if a driver is excessively speeding, taking unnecessary trips or misusing company/family vehicles.

Saving Money At The Pump

GPS Tracking Systems To Fuel-Efficient Cars

GasPumpGoing to the gas station and filling up the car or truck has become a very expensive process that effects many people's cost of living. With automobiles still being the number one form of transportation, soaring gas prices can have a direct impact on the finances of the everyday family as well as businesses with fleet management needs. Making the matter worse, continued tension in the Middle East and Summer gas prices (typically gas prices reach their peak in the Summer months) right around the corner, the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better. Understanding the critical importance of fuel economy and reduction of fuel consumption, Tracking System Direct has put together a list of the top 5 ways consumers and businesses can save money on gas.

GPS Tracker: Invest In One!

GPS vehicle tracking systems have came down dramatically in cost over the past few years, making the GPS monitoring devices affordable for both families and small businesses. What makes GPS tracker technology special is that it gives fleet managers and/or parents of teen drivers the ability to oversee the driving patterns and behaviors of employees or teens. Poor routing, excessive speeding and a number of other factors can all have a negative impact on fuel economy, and that is why is so many people invest in GPS tracking systems to monitor driving activity.

GPS Tracking Driver Speed

How Driving Slower Can Save Your Business Money!

gasFuel costs have been skyrocketing over the past couple months as unrest in the Middle East has caused many investors to believe that exports of petroleum from OPEC/oil producing countries will likely feel some form of disruption. With oil still being the main form of energy producer, many companies have had to make concessions in order to keep production high while not getting their backs broken from soaring fuel costs. The answer that many forward-thinking companies have found is that GPS tracking systems can offer a cost-effective avenue to oversee the precise cost of fuel consumption by company drivers. Once businesses are able to draw a base line of the monetary damages associated with fuel consumption, the company can then make adjustments, using GPS fleet management technology to reduce fuel consumption.

GPS monitoring systems can offer businesses a number of ways to enhance operations from improved routing, mileage documentation and auto-theft protection, but the key element that GPS tracking systems offer that can save companies money is that devices can record the speeds a driver travels. The reason why documenting driver speeds is important is because what many people may not be aware of is that any driver can reduce their fuel consumption by upwards of 35% by the proper use of something that every driver probably already has.

That being a functional and appropriately used right foot.

Drivers will often focus on many myths about fuel economy, such as thinking that a vehicle will get better gas mileage with the windows down rather than running the air conditioning, when in fact the way a person operates a vehicle will actually have the greatest impact on the amount of fuel they consume (driving a vehicle with the windows down actually creates drag/resistance that can have a negative impact on fuel economy). Although there are many little things that a driver can to improve fuel economy, for example checking the air pressure in tires once a week to ensure the proper inflation, the best ways to increase fuel efficiency is by keeping a steady foot and taking it slow.

GPS Tracking: How It Helps Fuel Economy

The difference between driving in a range between 55 mph-65 mph rather than driving consistently at the average of 60 mph can actually make a significant impact on any driver's wallet. By using speed control features such as cruise control, drivers can keep a more steady pace, something that can increase fuel economy. Also, by simply driving a little more slowly can have a much more positive impact on the wallet. Although some of this news may already appear to be common knowledge, it is shocking how many drivers seem to neglect these simple ways to improve fuel economy.

The likely reason for the neglect?

The company driver is not paying the gas bill.

Our vehicle monitoring experts are by no means suggesting that companies should begin utilizing a plan or strategy to make drivers pay for gasoline use, but by using car tracking technology, businesses can monitor driving activity and make drivers adhere to more efficient driving standards. The data accessible from both passive trackers such as the GPS Tracking Key and real-time trackers such as the SilverCloud can inform fleet managers about the driving practices of drivers, showing whether or not company vehicles are being used in a efficient fashion or simply taken for a ride. The fleet managers can then systematically shape driving behaviors of drivers to cut fuel costs and increase the overall company bottom line.

Gas is only going to continue to rise in cost, therefore it is important to have drivers execute responsible decision making when operating company vehicles. The cost could save your business a ton!
