What is the largest operating expense for fleets? Fuel. So, managing fuel efficiency is one of the key challenges for every fleet management company. Fortunately, telematics solutions can help fleet operators with cutting fuel costs. According to Frost & Sullivan, the benefits of a fleet management system include reducing fuel expenses up to 25 percent and idle times by up to 30 percent.

Geotab has consistently empowered our customers with key fleet insights. In this endeavor, we are launching improved fuel reports with latest release of MyGeotab. Here are the two default forms of fuel reporting available in MyGeotab: fuel usage and fuel fill-ups.

Fuel Usage Report

The Fuel Usage report summarizes fuel used, distance traveled, and fuel economy for the selected vehicles and time period.

This report presents valuable insights to identify the fuel performance for the fleet and specific vehicles. If the fuel economy is not within expected range, users can take action to identify the root cause (driver behavior, vehicle maintenance required, etc.). Once appropriate action is taken, fleet managers can see improvements in fuel efficiency leading to significant cost reductions.

To find the Fuel Usage report in MyGeotab, go to Engine & Maintenance > Fuel Usage.

Fuel Fill-Ups Report

The Fuel Fill-Ups report identifies the fill-up events as detected by the telematics device.

This can be a very useful tool to analyse and identify fuel-related fraud. Events from this report can be compared with imported fuel transaction data to highlight any mismatched transactions.

Custom Fuel Reports from the Geotab Marketplace

In addition to MyGeotab reports, you can find the following custom fuel reports on the Geotab marketplace:

Weekly Idle Cost Trend Report
As the name implies, this report tracks idling costs on a weekly basis and can also present the data as a graph. This makes it easier for fleet managers to track trends in idling time and assess if attempts to reduce idling are having an impact.

Average Fuel Economy Report
This report represents fuel economy of the entire fleet visually and through text. The simple presentation makes the data easy to assess at a glance and is ideal for dashboard reporting.

Last 3 Months Fuel Trend Report
Quarterly fuel tracking allows fleet managers to get a larger view of fuel usage and better evaluate the impact of policies meant to improve fuel efficiency or reduce waste.

    These are the same reports that have been in MyGeotab multiple years. I’m not sure after reading the article, are we expecting new and improved (non Beta?) reports? Or are there concrete improvements with new features in these reports which were simply not shown in the article?

      Yes, these reports existed on MyGeotab earlier. With latest release, we have completed our Beta testing to launch them fully. There are internal improvements and corresponding documentation (Product Guide – Fuel Usage & Fill-Ups FAQ). There are however, no visible changes related to how these reports should be used.
