Fleet Management

Fuel Storage Solutions for Fleet Management Companies

Whether you’re in the car rental business or keeping corporate vehicles on the road, the right fleet management solutions are vital to ensure your operation runs safely, reliably and economically.

Improving the fuel economy of your vehicles by less than 0.5km per litre could save you more than $100 per vehicle for vehicles travelling 33,000km a year at current prices, and more than $180 if your vehicles travel 55,000km – a significant saving.

Simply fixing an out of tune engine can improve vehicle mileage by an average 4 per cent, or up to 40 per cent for more serious problems.

Getting fleet management right starts with the right fuel storage systems.

Fuel Supply, Storage and Security

Top 3 Benefits to a F.E.S. TANK

FUEL SUPPLY

Quality fuel supply on site and on demand.
(24 hrs / 7 days / 365 year)

FUEL STORAGE

Safe storage of fuel and hydrocarbons in challenging locations. Design and drop installation with plug and play commissioning. Fast and simple.

FUEL SECURUTY

Robust tank construction with live fuel management and monitoring ensuring 24/7 data and security monitoring.

Why Does Fuel Storage Matter?

Knowing the fuel that powers your car rental or commercial fleet is properly stored and as fresh as possible is essential to your efficiency and your bottom line – but it can be a difficult variable to control when cars are being refuelled at multiple locations.

When buying fuel off-site drivers might not always have access to the best quality fuel at the best price, and monitoring quality can be a near-impossible task.in

On-Site Storage: The Benefits

Storing your fuel on-site is one way to take control of fuel quality, as well as making it easy to monitor consumption and quickly pick up any maintenance issues with particular vehicles before they become major problems.

Ideally, you’ll choose a storage option that allows you to turn your fuel supply over while it’s fresh while still giving you the flexibility and capacity to buy when the price is right – making significant cost savings.

Using on-site fuel storage tanks means you can minimise problems caused by contamination from water and particulates or diesel bugs.

Fuel destabilised by any of these factors will spoil quickly, and can lead to other problems.

Contaminated Fuel

Operational issues caused by contaminated fuel:

  • Poor starting or failure to start
  • Reduced availability of operational equipment
  • Poor or rough idle, reducing efficiency
  • Increased consumption
  • Excessive smoke and emissions

Other benefits of on-site fuel storage – particularly for car rental fleets – include:

  • Significant time savings as refuelling is now done on-site rather than staff going down to the local service station to fill up.
  • Greater control over refuelling on-site reduces the risk of employees filling the vehicle with the wrong product type.

Tank Integrity – Keeping Fuel Contained

In the past, the worry of keeping fuel contained in line with State and Federal environmental legislation has put some fleet managers off the idea of on-site storage.

After all, leaks in tanks or faulty valves and fittings can not only cost you thousands in lost fuel, but could also mean hefty clean-up bills under environmental legislation.

Fortunately, those issues have been addressed with the growing availability of self-bunded fuel storage tanks which have a double wall for fuel containment, revolutionising refuelling options for business.

The integrated second tank wall not only eliminates the need for expensive and inflexible external bunding work but dramatically improves the probability of being able to recover your fuel in a useable condition in case of a spill.

As an added bonus, the tanks are fully transportable so they can be installed easily on site and transported between operational bases as your fleet movements and needs change.
