Fuel Management Systems are used to monitor, control and record fuel stocks, tank levels and dispensing data. Also, implementing user security control to access and dispense fuel is a good security feature. A typical fuel management system will record the following data:
With the use of personal identity number (PIN) or a simple RFID keyring tag, it is simple to keep track of who has dispenser the fuel. And what vehicle or plant the fuel has gone in to. The above data is stored in an integrated fuel management computer mounted within or next to the dispenser pump, ready for a report to be downloaded.
With the adoption of cloud computing, there is very little need to install any software. The leading fuel management systems now offer browser-based ‘Anywhere’ solutions. With mobile phone and tablet friendly interfaces for ultimate freedom from the desktop PC.
The refuelling data is sent via a GPRS SIM card over the mobile phone network, via wifi if available or a hardwire connection to a local area network (LAN). This creates real-time dispensing and tank level data within seconds of each operation occurring. This data can then be used to report on vehicles and drivers. Also, it allows for usage and mpg to be analysed and reports can be saved in different formats such as .pdf .xml .csv etc.. Cloud-based systems have the benefit of allowing drivers and vehicles to be added or removed from the system remotely and also limit the amount of fuel taken by any user. Also, it allows a third party, like us at Tank Services to access and support your system without having to go to the site. So, it’s simple to make remote changes.
Here is an example of our system.
Tank level monitoring can also be set to trigger alerts. Such as email reminders to order a bulk fuel delivery. As an example, a trigger level of 15% can be set, you can also set the email to be sent to your oil delivery company to fulfil your order or request a quotation. As well as standard diesel and petrol fuels, fuel management systems can be used for AdBlue, Lube Oil and other distributed fluids that need to be monitored and audited. All from the same fuel management system.
We have installed one of these Fuel Management Systems on our Diesel Tank in our yard. So we have full access to a demonstration unit so that we can show you exactly how it works! Plus that means we’re experienced in how the system works so we can offer impressive after-sales support!
