Keeping Track of your GHG Reductions

What cannot be tracked cannot be managed. A Fuel Data Management System relates the true costs of fleet operations, with respect to fuel consumption, to key decision makers.

A fleet manager can select the most relevant measuring tool of a variety of monitoring and measurement methods, including:

  • Manually entered data.
  • Uploaded fuel pump data.
  • Fuel card or receipts data.
  • On-board vehicle computer data.
  • GPS data.

The City of Williams Lake has installed a fuel dispensing system to allow for improved fuel management.Fuel data management ensures that efficient and accurate fuel consumption and vehicle performance data is recorded and tracked. The understanding gained from this will allow fleet managers to invest in targeted areas that will result in the greatest fuel efficiency increases and GHG reductions. Ongoing monitoring and measurement performance will ensure green fleet action plans remain dynamic and ever-improving.

A fuel data management system will also provide a strong basis to understand performance variation in drivers, vehicles, and departments. The City of Victoria uses on board diagnostic equipment to develop an idling baseline. The City of Williams Lake installed a new fuel storage and dispensing system that allows them to better manage vehicle fuel consumption.

Benefits

A fuel data management system makes every other one of your fleet GHG reductions more effective. It also:

  • Helps identify continuous improvement opportunities.
  • Provides detailed measurement of fuel performance.
  • Increases benchmarking comparison opportunities.
  • Provides accurate cost methods.
