Driver behaviour can affect fuel efficiency in your fleet

When it comes to maximising fuel efficiency there are a range of things you can do to ensure that you are getting the most out of your company vehicles.

Regular fleet maintenance is an excellent way to see that each vehicle is operating efficiently, while also making sure that your drivers remain safe behind the wheel as well.

Another way to improve fuel economy is by assessing driver behaviour and identifying areas which can be improved.

People often underestimate just how much basic driving habits can affect the amount of fuel your vehicles are consuming.

Little details like removing unnecessary weight, ensuring your drivers are accelerating and decelerating smoothly and selecting the right gear (in a manual vehicle), can make all the difference when it comes to maximising your mileage.

A fleet management service which can provide in depth reporting and guidance around fuel consumption is an excellent tool in this department.

By comparing actual fuel usage to manufacturer vehicle specifications, a fleet service can highlight where shortfalls in economy are occurring and inform you of the potential solutions available.
