Bringing you the latest news in fuel management systems

Do you have a fleet of company vehicles that are used regularly? If so, you should consider purchasing a fuel card, because it can save your company cash.

 

You might think that you quite a bit about fuel, but take a look at these six facts and you may be surprised what you didn’t know. 

 

Early on, management at Bulk Fuel Australia recognised the benefits of integrating a system like DriveCam into its fuel distribution fleet. It seemed the obvious choice to improve driver safety, track bulk fuel deliveries in real-time and ensure regulatory compliance.

 

In the past, enduring a power outage was as simple as lighting a few candles. Not anymore. Without electricity, security systems can falter, telecommunications can cease, businesses can fail, and people can die. Luckily, there are emergency generators and other temporary power solutions to get us through.

 

Just like you're not the same as the next person and more relevantly, one machine isn't exactly like the next, different types of fuels vary in performance and use.

 

With the price of fuel going up and up, we want to drive as efficiently as possible so we can conserve our fuel, and in return, save money.

There’s no denying Australia has a love affair with cars and trucks. Perhaps it’s our competitive nature, our love of the outdoors or simply the sheer size of the country that has fuelled this love affair, to the point that there’s even a representative in our federal senate from the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party.

But what literally is fuelling this relationship? The latest figures show that Australians use as much as 31,839 million litres of fuel each year, with 57% petrol and 37% diesel. In this article, we take a brief look at the major differences between diesel and petrol, and consider how they are refined, used and priced.
