How to Stop Losing Money on Fuel

Fuel has always been expensive and the costs are rising. With the withdrawal of red diesel now only a few short months away – access stops on 1st April 2022 – getting a handle on escalating fuel costs has never been more crucial for UK businesses.

Your fuel stocks can tie up a lot of capital. Losing any of this stock can be catastrophic for your business, not to mention hugely frustrating. If you have fuel losses that are unaccounted for – you have a problem. Incorrect usage, human errors in recording fuel consumption and fuel theft are the three biggest causes of unaccounted fuel loss.

If you haven’t got firm control over your fuel use, the consequences could be more than lost money. Running out of fuel for plant or fleet vehicles causes downtime you could do without. It’s damaging to your business activities as well as your organisation’s reputation.

The Challenge of Fuel Management

Monitoring and controlling fuel usage is part of any fleet manager’s workload. But, it can get very complicated, especially when you’re monitoring fuel usage across multiple vehicles, drivers, dispensers or sites. As well as the sheer amount of time involved in monitoring stocks effectively, everyone makes mistakes and errors can cause a real headache.

The answer is to use an automatic fuel management system.

Automating your fuel management gives you full control of usage across multiple sites and multiple dispensers, enabling you to make data-driven decisions that help you plan, cut costs and improve fuel efficiency across your organisation.

Atlantis Tanks’ Solution

After researching the fuel management systems available on the market today, we’re now pleased to offer our customers the Piusi Cube B.SMART, which we consider to be the best.

The B.SMART is a cloud-based fuel management system, designed to take over the task of monitoring and controlling fuel use. Not only does this eliminate the possibility of human errors, it also saves plenty of human hours. This frees up your time to focus on what you do best while the B.SMART looks after your fuel.

What does the B.SMART do?

Reports

B.SMART provides real-time refuelling transaction reports and details of the driver, vehicle, amount of fuel taken, site and the dispenser as well as lots more essential information. It covers as many sites, drivers and dispensers as you need and can be scaled as your needs change.

Control

Only authorised drivers can take fuel and access can be instantly controlled. This plays a huge part in eliminating fuel thefts and waste. The system provides a simple way to pre-set dispensing volumes or set dispensers to fill. Whatever control you need over fuelling transactions, the robust, reliable B.SMART can be tailored for the job.

So, how does it work?

For Managers

There are no ongoing subscription or hosting fees with this cutting-edge system. Your designated fuel manager has an easy-to-use web portal that delivers the reports and enables access control over individual dispensers across multiple sites. Using the system means there’s no more need to create multiple reports or visit each site to check usage. Data and diagnostics are viewed in real-time – it’s the ultimate control at your fingertips. The B.SMART makes it easy to see where savings on fuel can be made and waste reduced.

For Drivers

Each of your drivers uses a mobile phone app (either iOS or Android) that communicates via Bluetooth and the existing network to send data to the cloud about their activities and fuel use.

The system also provides a safe method for drivers to refuel. Drivers can use the app up to 15 metres from the pump. This means they can set up dispensing from their vehicle, then leave the phone in the cab and complete the fuelling.

Features

The Piusi Cube B.SMART is available in a variety of configurations to match your fleet requirements and the number of drivers you have. Additional driver licenses are easily added to your system and a full range of accessories is available to tailor B.SMART to your exact needs.

For additional fuel safety and security, we recommend pairing the B.SMART with any of our steel StoraFUEL tanks. Take a look at our range of secure, steel fuel storage solutions
