5 Ways GPS Tracking Can Boost Fuel Economy

Due to the current increases of fuel prices across the global, businesses are looking for alternative methods to boost fuel economy.

We have put together a list of five ways that you can use GPS Tracking to boost your fuel economy.

Let’s check them out;

5 Ways GPS Tracking Can Boost Fuel Economy

1. Stop Speeding

A truck driving 75 miles per hour consumes 27% more fuel than one driving 65 miles per hour. Sticking to the speed limit is one of the biggest ways to save.

2. Reduce Aggressive Driving

Fuel economy could be improved by between 15% and 30% at highway speeds, simply by curbing aggressive driving.

3. Cut Down on Idling

Trucks idling at rest stops burn 0.8 gallons of fuel per hour, totalling 1.1 billion gallons annually across the entire industry.

4. Get More Efficient

Location tracking means that any wayward vehicles can be course-collected faster, saving time and money. Also, over time the quickest routes can be identified by the systems reports, for future efficiency increases.

5. Reduced Overtime

Similarly, overtime hours are tracking, ensuring Fleet Managers will be able to address a situation in real-time rather than learning about a driver’s overtime hours after the fact. We cover more tips like this in our 19 Actionable Tips To Reduce Fuel Costs post.

The e- Route app helps our engineers find Core sites instead of Non-Core sites which helps with efficiencies and cost savings. Velocity is well managed, and I can create plenty of reports and my Account Manager is always on hand to help.
