Fleet Management

Operating in the car rental market or working in fleet management?

Fuel costs and vehicle maintenance keeping you awake at night?

Keeping your fleet running safely, reliably and economically is a priority, no matter how big your business.

Improving the fuel economy of your vehicles by less than 0.5km per litre could save you more than $100 per vehicle for vehicles travelling 33,000km a year at current prices, and more than $180 if your vehicles travel 55,000km.

Simply fixing an out of tune engine can improve vehicle mileage by an average 4 per cent, or up to 40 per cent for more serious problems.

Why does fuel storage matter?

Knowing the fuel that goes into your fleet vehicles is properly stored and as fresh as possible is essential to your efficiency and your bottom line – but it can be a difficult variable to control when cars are being refuelled at multiple locations.

When you’re buying fuel off-site drivers might not always have access to the best quality fuel at the best price, and monitoring quality can be a near-impossible task.

A bad batch of fuel can make a critical difference, and is one of the most common causes of breakdown in fleet vehicles.

On-site storage: the benefits

Storing your fuel on-site is one way to take control of fuel quality, as well as making it easy to monitor consumption and quickly pick up any maintenance issues with particular vehicles before they become major problems.

Ideally, you’ll choose a storage option that allows you to turn your fuel supply over while it’s fresh while still giving you the flexibility and capacity to buy when the price is right – making significant cost savings.

On-site fuel storage means you can minimise problems caused by contamination from water and particulates or diesel bugs.

Fuel destabilised by any of these factors will spoil quickly, and can lead to other problems.

Other operational issues caused by contaminated fuel

Poor starting or failure to start

Reduced availability of operational equipment

Poor or rough idle, reducing efficiency

Inc​reased consumption

Excessive smoke and emissions

Tank integrity – keeping fuel contained

In the past, the worry of keeping fuel contained in line with State and Federal environmental legislation has put some fleet managers off the idea of on-site storage.

After all, leaks in tanks or faulty valves and fittings can not only cost you thousands in lost fuel, but could also mean hefty clean-up bills under environmental legislation.

Fortunately, those issues have been addressed with the growing availability of self-bunded tanks which have a double wall for fuel containment, revolutionising refuelling options for business.

The integrated second tank wall not only eliminates the need for expensive and inflexible external bunding work but dramatically improves the probability of being able to recover your fuel in a useable condition in case of a spill.

As an added bonus, the tanks are fully transportable, so can be installed easily on site and transported between operational bases as your fleet movements and needs change.

Better control over the quality of fuel your vehicles use, and efficient systems to monitor individual consumption, can help you avoid expensive breakdowns and maintenance issues and ensure your fleet runs at maximum fuel efficiency, minimising maintenance costs and maximising safety and performance.

We created our unique range of self bunded fuel storage tanks to cover all aspects of fuel compliance so "YOU" don't have to.
