With the prices of oil rising each day, many businesses are willing to go the extra mile – literally – in order to save a buck or two. But having your fleet drivers travel to where diesel is a bit cheaper may be costing more than you think. Time is money, and fleet fueling can help you save on both. Not so sure? Consider this:
- The value of one driver and one truck is at least $65 per hour
- A driver spends a minimum of 20 minutes for each refueling stop, and needs to refuel about 3 times a week (which takes up an hour of that driver’s time, and costs you at least $65.00)
Doing this every week for an entire year will cost your business $3,380 and/or 52 hours per truck! That’s hardly worth the 2 or 3 cents you might save per gallon by driving around looking for the best fuel deal.
Instead, businesses should consider fleet fueling, which saves money on drive and fill times at gas stations while providing peace of mind in knowing that trucks are always fueled and ready to go. With fleet fueling, we’ll come directly to your site and fuel your trucks at a time that is convenient for you, and you can always rest assured knowing that your fleet received the highest quality diesel directly from the refinery to your truck. You’ll also receive the added protection of additives – ones that aren’t available at your regular fuel station – that are necessary for today’s engines to run efficiently and trouble-free.
