Companies don’t often consider the effect of managing their fuel use in their budgeting process, despite the growing costs of fuel of all kinds. 4Refuel, formerly known as Mini-Tankers Canada, has built on years of experience in on-site fuel delivery to create a web-based fuel management system designed to track usage and reduce costs.
4Refuel Inc.9440 202nd Street
Last year, 4Refuel saved clients over $5.5 million and helped boost productivity by an average of 20 minutes per vehicle per day. 4Refuel is the recognized Leader in Fuel Management – defined as the process of minimizing the cost of obtaining fuel and maximizing the commercial return on using it.
Using radio-frequency positive ID, 4Refuel tracks and stores fuelling data for each vehicle or piece of equipment, recording volume, date, fuel type and vehicle ID. Then, fuelling data is merged with engine performance data to create a detailed analysis of fuel efficiency, areas of waste and opportunities to boost productivity. The results are staggering.
Many companies are surprised by how much it really costs to fuel a vehicle. In addition to the cost of fuel, the true cost of fuel includes the per vehicle cost of time, labour, administration, additional maintenance, insurance, etc.
Unlike traditional fuel suppliers, 4Refuel trains a national team of Territory Managers to be fuel managers who assist clients in analyzing and cutting fuel costs and help them improve fleet efficiency, profit and productivity.
The essential tool in fuel management is data – you can’t manage what you can’t measure. Each of 4Refuel’s 6,500 clients have 24-hour access to detailed fuelling history through Fuel Management Online (FMO) – at no extra charge. FMO stores years of detailed fuelling data searchable by location, vehicle, date, etc.
To this, sister company U-Con adds powerful second layer of analysis by merging the FMO fuel data with real-time vehicle engine data. The result is vehicle-by-vehicle detail on fleet idling, speeding and revving as well as engine maintenance and even fuel misappropriation. The system is unmatched in the world and is helping businesses and government actually see their fuel and directly control it.Biodiesel
