In 2014 we launched our latest product, a first for the Irish market, Fuel Improve which allows you to sync the latest GPS tracking technology with your fuel card use. Through on-going training we give you the tools needed to reduce your overall transport costs by up to 20% or we will give you your money back if you don’t see a saving. This pioneering software allows you to record all vehicle activity and lets you know where every litre of fuel purchased is used. Find out more about Fuel Improve by clicking here.

In 2012, Fuelwise launched their latest fuel card to the market which means we now have 4 fuel card options to offer our customers, view all our cards and see which one is the right card for your business by clicking on our products.

Fuelwise continue to invest heavily on our site network, product range and online management tools. Recently we launched the very latest in on-line technology; Velocity which is our online management tool and is unique to the fuel card industry. This allows you to get the most out of your account by providing you with critical business information at the click of a button. Velocity provides you with all the information you need to manage your business more efficiently; for example you can create bespoke reports on card usage and miles per gallon (kilometres per litre), access historic invoices, check PIN numbers and order or stop cards. Visit Velocity now to sign up or view a demonstration.

With a Fuelwise fuel card you will get a competitive price at all filling stations available on our network no matter what part of the country you are travelling in. Fuelwise can save our customers up to 6cpl on diesel in Ireland when compared to the national average pump price as quoted by the AA Ireland website* and in the UK prices can be up to 4ppl less than pump prices and even less when compared to motorway service stations. There are many market factors that influence our supply price and your price reflects the oil market movement by reacting quicker to price moves than forecourt prices. We cannot guarantee to be cheaper than every filling station, however if the oil market drops we pass on these savings immediately. We also supply you with a price update so you will always know what price you are paying allowing you to make an informed decision in the best interests of your company putting you firmly in control of your costs. Visit our cost saving calculator now to see how much you could be saving on your fuel today.

Applying for a Fuelwise fuel card could not be easier, have a look at our application now to apply online or let us know if you would like a call back and one of our dedicated account managers will be in contact with you shortly to talk you through the process.

This year we are currently looking at adding to our network of sites and hope to bring a new fuel card to the market which will complement the current range of cards available and reinforce Fuelwise as the leading fuel card company in Ireland.

Company History

Fuelwise was started in 1989 by my late father Gerry Kelly. He had a lot of knowledge about the industry having previously driven HGV’s and also having worked for a well known local fuel supplier.

In 1989 he combined this knowledge and contacted a few filling stations with the idea of fuel bunkering which would allow drivers to take advantage of the savings in the Republic of Ireland. This was a first for the fuel business within Ireland and this “new innovative idea” began to grow and our company was formed.

Initially a driver would go to one of these filling stations and sign for the fuel. At the end of the month a report would be sent to our office where it would be manually broken down and separated into invoices for each individual customer.

Now of course all this is done through the fuel card which has Chip & PIN technology. Each night all the information is polled through the telephone lines to a central computer which reads the information and breaks it down accordingly. Now you can see where your card has been used in the last 24 hours simply by logging on to Velocity.

In 1998, after 9 years of continual growth, a deal was struck with UK Fuels to allow Fuelwise to use their network of sites in both Ireland and the UK giving Fuelwise customers access to the largest network of sites in Ireland and a comprehensive network in the UK. This has helped distinguish us from other competitors as we offer the largest choice of sites in Ireland – currently over 1100 (1300) refuelling points available. See where your card can be used in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

At the end of 2000 I returned from working in England and Scotland to work alongside my father. In November 2001 Gerry passed away. This was a shock to our family and to Fuelwise. In taking over the business under difficult circumstances I have tried to maintain the same dynamics that had been established and had seen the company grow and form a great reputation in the fuel card business.

Over the last 13 years we have witnessed many changes. We opened our office in Galway in 2003 employing 10 staff, this allows us to provide a better level of service to our clients in Republic of Ireland, this office is now a vital part to our growing business and it helps us sustain our reputation with clients in the Republic of Ireland.

Our office in Coleraine has rapidly expanded to meet the demands of our clients in Northern Ireland. Your Fuelwise card is now accepted at over 180 sites across Northern Ireland giving you the largest network of sites of any fuel card supplier in the country.

I believe Fuelwise is well positioned for the future. With our clients foremost in mind we aim to offer you an exceptional level of service at all times and we continue to work hard with new innovative ways to improve your experience with us and we remain the leader in the fuel card industry.

Fuelwise have the advantage of having family roots with the structure of a corporate organisation. We are large enough to make sure we can pass on savings through bulk buying and also investing in new technologies which keep us ahead of the market, yet small enough to care and adapt quickly to an ever changing market place.

We currently have 4 fuel cards within our product range, each one tailored to your individual needs. If you need fuel in Ireland, UK or Europe or if your fleet ranges from a company car to a whole fleet of HGV’s we have a card that will suit you. If you would like to know more about our product range click here.

Our aim is to constantly bring new products and innovative solutions to the market which will continue to keep Fuelwise at the forefront of the fuel card business across Ireland and the UK.
