Executive Guide to Fleet Fuel Economy, Part 2

Executive Guide to Fleet Fuel Economy, Part 2

With major flux and market volatility surrounding the cost of diesel fuel, complete with highs of more than $4 per gallon over sustained periods, it is crucial that businesses take full control over variables affecting fuel spend and consumption that are within their influence. One solution to skyrocketing fuel costs is to focus on the basic premise of conservation.

To achieve improved fuel economy in a systematic way requires a good understanding of the full range of equipment and employee contributions to fuel consumption. Part 1 of this informational series provides a refresher on fuel economy basics with a discussion of savings options you may select to implement within your fleet. A complete fuel management program generally begins with a review of fuel purchasing and ends with consideration of vehicle fuel consumption. Our focus in
Part 2 of this Fuel Economy Executive Guide will be on change management within your organization, especially for driver and other staff behavior that impacts the success of any fuel conservation program.

This document will expand on the leadership decisions and commitments that are necessary to bring about real change in your employee and driver population regarding attitudes and behavior toward fuel economy. We will offer practical and strategic guidance on driver management and behavior modification approaches and techniques, the relative costs of various approaches and their comparative impact on fuel mileage. Driver training, motivation and handling common objections are covered as well.
