Fuel management systems are used to monitor, control and record fuel stocks, tank levels and dispensing data. Implementing user security control to access and dispense fuel is a good security feature. A typical fuel management system will record the following data:
It’s easy to keep track of who dispensed the fuel and what vehicle or plant the fuel has gone into. By using a personal identity number (PIN) or a simple RFID keyring tag, the data is stored in an integrated fuel management computer mounted within or next to the dispenser pump, ready 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.
The refuelling data is sent via a GPRS SIM card over the mobile phone network, via wi-fi 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 which can then be used to report on vehicles and drivers. It also allows for usage and mpg to be analysed and reports can be saved in different formats. 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 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. For example, a trigger level of 15% can be set to send an email to your oil delivery company to fulfill 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 a fuel management systems on our diesel tank in our yard, so we can demonstrate exactly how it works. Being experienced in how the system works allows us to offer impressive after-sales support!
