GPS Tracking America’s GPS tracking solutions will result in payback in as little as 1- 2 months. In addition, it alerts both management AND the driver of harsh braking, rapid acceleration, engine idling and speeding, while it improves maintenance scheduling and provides an audit trail of driving activity as required by management and government.
What does a mile of driving cost your operation? Use the calculator below to find savings by reducing distance driven.
Don’t Idle when stopped. 1 gallon of fuel is burned when an engine idles for approximately 1 hour at rest (900 RPM).
Watch your speed. At speeds above 60 mph, the fuel loss is about 1% for each mile per hour increase in speed.
Don’t drive erratically. Driving a pickup truck effectively can use less fuel than driving a compact car erratically.
Keep your vehicle tuned. Proper tuning not only increases fuel economy by up to 10%. Use the GPS tracking system maintenance.

This Return On Investment Calculator is a business tool to identify possible areas of savings for a fleet in fuel cost reduction and the resulting improvement in productivity and customer service. This document is not a guarantee of payback. Payback results must be achieved through driver behavior modification and with proper and consistent management use of the GPS tracking system to meet business objectives.
