If you’re tired of wasting money on fuel, losing sleep over lost fueling data and transaction records or having to explain complicated fueling procedures to your employees over and over, then you could probably benefit from wireless automated fueling. What is wireless automated fueling, and how exactly can it benefit you? Let’s dive right in!
1) Is entering a vehicle’s credentials too time-consuming?
The entire process can be streamlined so that you can fuel a vehicle simply by lifting the nozzle and inserting it into the fuel inlet. With the FuelFocus Vehicle ID Box equipped to your fueling vehicle assets, all of the credentials required for fueling are stored with the vehicle, automating the process of authorizing a vehicle to fuel. With this, you can move your vehicles through the fuel islands at a much faster rate than previously, saving your organization time and money.
2) Tired of seeing “0” or “999999” as the meter when a vehicle fuels?
The FuelFocus Vehicle ID Box will retrieve and store the vehicle’s meter information and enter it automatically when the vehicle fuels. If you want accurate periodic maintenance schedules, you need to also have accurate meter information. Pulling the meter directly from the vehicle’s Controller Area Network (CAN) bus is the most accurate and reliable way of reporting meter information. The Vehicle ID Box can be installed on a wide variety of vehicle types, even older vehicles that don’t have a CAN bus. With modernized ID boxes, your fuel reporting measurements can be much more accurate – no more “0’s” or “999999’s!”
3) Wish you could have engine fault codes show up on work orders automatically?
With the FuelFocus Vehicle Data Collection module, vehicle telematics will be automatically sent to your FleetFocus database in order to create work orders for the vehicle in question. Even if a driver forgets to mention that their Check Engine light is on, you’ll be alerted that the vehicle needs maintenance and the engine code can be automatically added to a work order. Neglect and postponed maintenance can be one of the driving factors in rising maintenance costs and vehicle downtime, and it might not be the technicians’ faults. A driver may not notice Check Engine light, or may believe that he doesn’t need to report the dashboard lights or other issues that arise because your system knows the problems with the vehicles automatically. Now that’s true! With this technology, the vehicles’ Telematics and Diagnostic Trouble Codes are passed along to your management system so you can schedule the necessary maintenance before it is too late.
