According to the U.S. Department of Energy, each 5 MPH you drive over 50 MPH is like paying an additional $0.25 per gallon of gas. To lower your fuel expenses its as simple as keeping to the speed limit. The gas mileage of most vehicles starts to decrease between speeds of 55 and 60 MPH.
Fleets that are operating in the Eagle Ford Shale certainly understand this. The distances they have to cover are long no matter where they come from.Getting your drivers to slow down just a little bit could go a long way to reducing your fuel bill. If you have vehicles that spend a lot of time on the highway this could add up very quickly.
Without the right tools monitoring the speed of any vehicles is very difficult to do without the right tools. An easy way to monitor the speed of your entire fleet is by equipping your fleet with GPS tracking systems. GPS Tracking USA’s GPS tracking systems will report the speed and location automatically to our user interface. Using reports and speed alerts can automatically send you notifications when speeding so you can inform your drivers.
A speed alert can be setup to record when a vehicle goes above a certain speed. For example, if you set the threshold to 65 MPH then every time the vehicle goes above that the GPS system will mark that location. Now as a manager you can easily identify when and for how long your vehicles were going above the limit.
