Fuel Optimization

Who doesn’t like to save money on fuel? Fuel costs are a huge part of trucking, let’s face it. But since you spend so much on fuel, there’s also the potential to save a lot of money in this area as well. Fuel optimization is perhaps the best way to accomplish this.

How Do Fuel Optimizers Work?

Fuel optimization programs help you get the most bang for your fuel buck. By analyzing various factors that influence fuel costs, these programs recommend the best choices for purchasing fuel for a given driver on a given route. Let’s take a closer look at how these programs work.

There are several factors that fuel optimization programs analyze in determining the best fuel-buying choices. Chief among these are:
  • Amount of fuel in the truck’s tank
  • Fuel prices along a certain route
  • Expected gallons burned & average MPG
  • Total IFTA tax, if any
Using at all these variables, fuel optimization programs then figure out a driver’s best options according to various calculations. Drivers or dispatchers are then ready to make their best informed fuel buying decisions.

TruckLogics Gives You Fuel Optimization and So Much More
