Best Practice (Good)
Implement a fleet gas credit card program for drivers to refuel their vehicles, restricting usage of the card to a set number of times per day with a dollar limit per each transaction.
Typical Practice (Bad)
Provide drivers with set allowance for refueling their vehicles during transit. The time and amount of each individual refuel cannot be logged, and data on individual fuel purchases is not available, which limits cost tracking capabilities.
Benefits: Allows for an accurate, real-time, and easily accessible measurement of how much gas fleet vehicles/drivers are using. This helps identify which drivers are using more gas and at which times, allowing fleet management to drill down on specific improvements related to gas consumption.
