Reduce Fuel Expenditures with GPS Fleet Tracking

29 Jun 2017

GPS fleet tracking technology is growing in popularity, and for fleet owners like you, it can help you make better use of their resources (drivers, vehicles and mobile technicians). It can also help you reduce fuel expenditures.

With GPS fleet tracking you can:

  • Reduce aggressive driving (rapid acceleration, speeding and braking): According to the Department of Energy, aggressive driving wastes gas. GPS tracking can help improve fuel economy by around three percent and improve gas mileage by around 10 percent for those using it.
  • Reduce unnecessary idling: Keep track of drivers who are idling excessively and change this behavior. One hour of idling uses up around a half gallon of gas.
  • Reduce risk: When you can track the speed of your fleet drivers, you’re able to not only lower fuel consumption and save money, you can also reduce their risk of getting into an accident.
  • Reduce vehicles required: With GPS fleet tracking, you can reduce the number of vehicles and routes required to meet your schedule needs.

GPS tracking devices can help you identify where your fleet is at all times which can help you increase fuel efficiency and make other improvements. When you’re able to identify where excessive fuel consumption is coming from, you can make the changes needed to reduce your fuel costs.

Fleet managers often use fuel cards manage and control fuel costs. Integrate your fuel card with your GPS tracking technology and have complete visibility of your fuel consumption and spend.

It can be unquestionably complicated having to generate long reports of your fuel card use. However, when you integrate your fuel card with GPS fleet tracking, you are able to integrate fuel card use and present the data you get in a simple format.

GPS fleet tracking technology provides you with the exact fuel data of just one driver or your entire fleet. You’re able to pinpoint any outright fuel theft or fuel wasting practices easily.  With GPS fleet tracking you can:

  • Pinpoint exactly where high fuel consumption is taking place
  • Track accurate MPG
  • Enforce driving habits that save fuel
  • Eliminate fuel slippage
  • Reduce fuel costs
  • Ensure your vehicles are running efficiently


Bottom line, GPS fleet tracking technology will alert you various driving behaviors that waste fuel so you can implement necessary changes to reduce your fuel expenditures and run your fleet operation more effectively.
