The holiday season is a joyful time of year, however, it can put extra pressure on truck drivers to meet certain quotas and finish tasks on time. While excessive speeding is unsafe at any time of the year, drivers may be more inclined to speed during the holidays. We want to remind you that speeding is never the answer. Vnomics True Fuel™ proves that, at the end of the day, speeding doesn’t actually save much time and it burns significantly more fuel, inflating costs and reducing profits.
The trade-off between increasing highway speed and time saved is a false economy because of how rapidly fuel costs increase per mile at higher speeds. For example, if a long haul driver increases his or her average highway speed by 2 miles per hour, the truck will use an extra 5.6 gallons of fuel a week. It will also only save the driver 38 minutes of drive time in one week. And at higher speeds, vehicles burn more fuel per gallon, so the cost per minute gets worse. This is where True Fuel™comes in, as it can quantify the amount (and cost) of fuel unnecessarily consumed by inflated speeds.
Our innovative, one-of-a-kind fuel optimization system is designed to help commercial trucking fleets increase profits and provide a competitive edge. True Fuel™ technology has helped thousands of drivers improve fuel economy and performance. We have coached drivers over the course of 1.5 billion miles for a savings of more than 7 million gallons of fuel. With a self-install time of less than 15 minutes, True Fuel™ enables fleets to begin saving immediately.
We know that every driver, route, truck, and load is different, which is why True Fuel™ precisely monitors each vehicle’s actual fuel usage in real-time and compares it to the maximum achievable fuel economy for that vehicle under its current load and operating conditions. This is key to fairly recognizing driver performance and leads to improved driver satisfaction and retention.
Our effective and fair scorecards of the driver performance support continuous improvement, while comprehensive and precise analytics pinpoint areas of fuel waste in order for drivers and fleet managers to know exactly what actions to take to optimize their fuel usage. Because of our system’s unique ability to calculate maximum potential fuel economy and precisely determine actual fuel consumption, customers can see for themselves the improvement in fuel economy both in absolute terms of higher MPG and in relative terms of reducing fuel waste.
As a standalone solution, True Fuel™ adds value for any fleet, regardless of its telematics or on board technology platforms. Instantly see your fleet go farther on less fuel and improve your bottom line.
