New move to cut fuel bills

A NEW service launched by PHH aims to help fleets cut fuel bills to below pre-Budget levels by encouraging drivers to drive economically. MPG Improvement Reporting monitors drivers' progress against pre-arranged individual or company monthly targets through transactions on the AllStar fuel card.

PHH says now the 6% increase in pump prices has filtered through to the UK forecourts, an average 100-vehicle fleet will see fuel bills rise by more than £10,000. But, it claims that by using MPG Improvement Reporting, the same fleet could see a fuel bill reduction of at least 10%, leaving it £4,500 better off than before the Budget.

PHH divisional manager, fuel, Keith Greenhead, said: 'The majority of drivers should be able to make an improvement of between two and three mpg without any difficulty. Two miles alone is enough to offset Budget increases. Everything over this is a clear and obvious saving.'
