Galileosky experts estimate that the percentage of fuel thefts in corporate vehicle fleets can reach up to 20%. For example, a company buys 100,000 tons of fuel a year, and 20,000 tons of fuel may "go out". At a cost of fuel of 1.5 USD the loss could be 30,000 USD a year.
If the fuel control system is not implemented at the enterprise, the fuel costs can be monitored based on the following parameters:
GPS-tracker receives the data on the vehicle movement (coordinates, speed, mileage and others). It is possible to analyze the factors influencing fuel overconsumption: unplanned trips, idling, and others, based on these parameters. It is important to note that it is impossible to get accurate information about real fuel consumption on the route, time, places and refueling volumes with the help of the GPS-tracker only.
The fuel level sensor is installed in the car tank and connected to the GPS tracker.
Every change in the tank fuel level is displayed in the monitoring system with time and location reference. The accuracy of the data provided by the fuel level sensor is 97-99%.
Accurate information on location, speed, mileage, tank refills, tank discharges, fuel consumption by tank, etc.
The GPS-tracker is connected to the vehicle control unit via the CAN-bus: the tracker receives data from the regular sensors and transmits them to the monitoring system.
Among the solutions that have been considered, it is best to use a package solution. The real control is the ability to compare as many different indications as possible and to identify the causes of discrepancies.
