How It Works

MPG IS NOT AN ACCURATE MEASURE OF DRIVER PERFORMANCE...BUT YOU AND YOUR DRIVERS ALREADY KNEW THAT

UNDERSTANDING FUEL PERFORMANCE & SCORING DRIVERS THE FAIR AND EFFECTIVE WAY: FUEL EFFICIENCY

Load, tractor type & equipment, environmental variables, and route and terrain are all factors/variables outside of the driver’s control, but all heavily impact MPG – So how could MPG accurately represent the driver’s performance? It can’t.

True Fuel® is listening to data from the truck’s ECM and, with patented software, can tell you how much fuel is being wasted to:

  • Engine Speed Control
  • Speeding
  • Idling

With this unique ability to measure how much fuel is wasted and where, we’re able to tell you the MPG the driver could have achieved if the truck was driven perfectly, with no waste – We call this, the Potential MPG. 

Knowing the Actual MPG, and the Potential MPG, we’re able to determine the driver’s Fuel Efficiency.

How It Works

Proven to reduce fuel spend by 3% to as much as 10%, True Fuel® uses three pillars to improve driver behavior:

1) Driver Coaching

Drivers hear audible coaching tones only when exhibiting inefficient behavior.

2) Actionable Analytics

Automated reports empower trainers to have efficient and productive coaching conversations. For additional insight, the portal and API are easy to use and data-rich.

3) Fair & Balanced Scorecards

Measuring the fuel wasted to true driver behavior, Fuel Efficiency is the fair and understandable metric for assessing driver performance.

Ease of Use

INTEGRATED WITH YOUR EXISTING TELEMATICS PROVIDER

True Fuel® is an application that integrates with your existing telematics system, automating data capture and driver assignment. True Fuel® uses three pillars to improve driver behavior:

  • Real-time in-cab coaching does the heavy lifting of affecting change in inefficient driver behaviors.
  • Automated reporting provides only the data needed to your driver trainers, empowering them to have efficient and impactful coaching conversations.
  • A simple, understandable, performance metric (Fuel Efficiency) is given to the driver at the end of each trip so they know how well they did, and how they can do better.

Additional driver and fleet data is accessible through the easy to use web portal and API (for back-end integration with custom BI reporting systems).
