When we think of saving money on fuel we automatically think of cheaper fuel prices; but there are other ways to save money on fuel before even hitting the pump.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revised its vehicle testing procedures in 2006 to help better reflect how people really drive in current conditions. The way you drive any vehicle affects how much fleet fuel you use, if you didn’t know. These new testing methods – whose results took effect with the 2008 model year – include factors such as high speeds, quick accelerations, air conditioning use and driving in cold temperatures. All of these items done incorrectly will cause your fuel management program havoc.
With a bad economy and taxes on a rise everyone is looking for ways to save money. Many try to cut back on non essentials such as going out to eat, the movies, and shopping. But what can you do when it comes to necessities, such as fuel? At Sokolis Group one of our goals is to help our fleet fuel clients save money on that necesssity.
