Car and van fleet operators can capture and take advantage of 'highly accurate' fuel consumption data with a new monitoring tool from Ctrack.
Fuel Reader plugs directly into the OBD II port to read data directly from the engine control unit (ECU) and effectively calculate fuel usage, carbon emissions and RPM.
This information is then communicated via Bluetooth to the Ctrack tracking unit, so fleet operators can have real-time and historical access through their existing fleet management and reporting platform.
As a result, Ctrack says they will be able to better understand exactly how much fuel is being consumed and where potential wastage in occurring.
John Wisdom, managing director of Ctrack said: “With fuel typically accounting for more than a quarter of all fleet operating costs, it is essential that car and light commercial vehicle operators have complete understanding of consumption along with associated carbon emissions.
"Fuel Reader works alongside our existing tracking solutions to provide an integrated approach that delivers the necessary intelligence to help drive down overheads and operate more responsibly.”
