The basic answer is that fuel management systems are just that; devices, programs, and/or systems used for control and monitor fuel usage and other related accountability issues. It can be used on your truck’s tank or on the tank being hauled.
In a basic nutshell, fuel management systems measure the amount of fuel put into the tank and how long it lasts and can also monitor cost, consumption, and other data.
Most commonly associated with airplanes, we have all see the movie where the pilot reads the gauge, estimates the burning rate, and how much long the engines will run.
Well, it works similarly for your truck, only it also tells the dispatcher (or other authority) how much was put in the tank, the cost, and how fast it was used.
There are numerous systems, some common ones are:
- Card based, the fuel credit card used is used with a driver’s assigned pin (usually assigned either the driver or the vehicle).
- Onsite fueling systems, fleet trucks are fueled in their lot and the appropriate information is recorded.
- Onsite fuel delivery, the fuel is brought to the jobsite and the vehicles are recorded / monitored on the spot.
