Aggressive driving can increase fuel consumption higher than 33%. Keeping in mind that it will also add up to higher and more frequent vehicle servicing costs, think twice next time you are pulling off from traffic lights burning tyres and your money. Built in accelerometer in GPS Tracker will help you to track such driving habits and improve fuel efficiency.
Drive at recommended speed
Different vehicles have different fuel consumption at certain speed, however usually most engines have decreased efficiency at over 130 km/h speed. To avoid speeding, you can setup the speed limit on the system which will send you a warning when the driver exceeds the set limit . Also in the case of an accident it is easy to prove the current speed for insurance purposes. Usually when drivers are aware of a GPS Tracker in a vehicle, they are driving much more sensibly, so GPS Trackers can save not only fuel, but lives also.
Avoid excessive idling
Research indicates that every two minutes a car is idling, it uses about the same amount of fuel it takes to go about one mile. Average person idles their car five to 10 minutes a day. People usually idle their cars more in the winter than in the summer. But idling is not an effective way to warm up your vehicle, even in cold weather. The best way to do this is to drive the vehicle. Frequent restarting has little impact on engine components like the battery and the starter motor. Component wear caused by restarting the engine is estimated to add €15.00 per year to the cost of driving, money that will likely be recovered several times over in fuel savings from reduced idling. The bottom line is that more than ten seconds of idling uses more fuel than restarting the engine.That's why most new modern cars have now Start-Stop sytem. Our GPS tracker will monitor idling duration and you can export full report to PDF and DOC formats._
Choose the efficient route
Many fleet managers are still working ineffectively by just giving destination address to the driver. And the driver just types in the address into sat nav. Shortest is not necessary most efficient. With GPS tracker you can track whole route's altitudes, acceleration, average speed and fuel consumption. Huge difference can be noticed in trucks' routes, carrying heavy loads. In this way you can organize most efficient way to deliver your goods or services to your customer.
