Fleet Fuel Management with Telematics: A Solution Worth Considering

Telematics technology has transformed how fleet managers operate their fleets. It has not only proven to be a game changer for fleet management by giving previously unattainable real-time data and insights but with the integration of fuel level sensors into telematics systems, fleet managers can gain critical insights into fuel usage patterns, identify areas for improvement, and optimize their fleets for maximum efficiency and cost savings.  

What is fuel level sensor and how does it operate? 

A fuel level sensor is a gadget that determines how much fuel is left in vehicle’s tank.  It helps you to log and gain powerful insight about your fuel consumption and how it contributes to asset operating costs. With a click, you can identify high consumption vehicles and allocate them based on their usage.  

Connecting the fuel level sensor to the telematics system is of paramount importance. Once connected, the data from the sensor is transferred to the Eagle-I dashboard which then compute and analyze the fuel usage  

Eagle-I offer fuel management using an ultrasonic fuel level sensor. These fuel sensors are non-invasive tools installed on fuel tanks. They do not require contact with the fuel and do not damage the fuel tank. It is easy to install and environmentally friendly. Besides this, they are IP66 compliant which means they provides ±0.5% level accuracy with a measurement range of 5cm-100cm. Our ultrasonic fuel level sensors are compatible with the advanced telematics devices offered by Digital Myths Solution.   
Eagle-I fuel level monitoring solution offers detailed reports about every phase of fueling such as refueling/drainage time & location, how many liters were filled, how many liters were consumed, fuel tank lid opening date and location, etc. Moreover, it offers a graphical representation to determine the cause of change in fuel volume i.e. refueling or draining of fuel in the tank. Besides this, reports can be generated to calculate the miles traveled by the fleet and the amount of fuel consumed by them, providing insight into the cost per Mile and performance levels.  
Once the fuel level data is integrated into the telematics system, fleet managers can access it in real-time. This allows them to monitor fuel consumption and usage patterns, identify potential problems such as fuel leaks or theft, and optimize routes to reduce fuel consumption. 
In addition to fuel level data, telematics systems can also collect other data related to fuel usage, such as engine performance, vehicle speed, and idle time. By combining this data with fuel level data, fleet managers can gain a comprehensive view of their vehicles’ fuel usage patterns and identify areas for improvement. 
For example, if a particular vehicle in the fleet is consistently using more fuel than others, it may be due to inefficient driving habits, such as excessive idling or speeding. By identifying these issues, fleet managers can provide training to drivers to improve their fuel efficiency and reduce overall fuel costs. 
The combo of fleet management solution and fuel monitoring is quickly a must-have for any fleet manager looking to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced business environment.
