Airmax Remote has announced the results of research conducted over twelve months in 2017, highlighting fuel savings achievable by MPG monitoring.

In 2017 Airmax Remote analysed a full year of fuel data reported by their Airmax Remote Premium Plus product.

Using the manufacturer recommended values as a benchmark and comparing actual fuel usage from the vehicle CANBus, the research highlights that across a 10,000 vehicle sample, recording 200k miles a year reveals an overall 9.08% improvement on the delta (difference between manufacturer MPG and Remote Mileage Manager analysis, along with a 2.0% improvement per mile (45.52mpg - 46.42mpg).


Breakdown of the MPG analysis in 2017:

  • Average published manufacturer MPG: 61.84
  • Average MPG reported by Airmax Remote: 46.42
  • Delta (difference between manufacturer MPG and Airmax Remote recordings) 15.42 MPG (-24.49%)


The research based on actual driver behavior statistics concludes that the gap between published manufacturer MPG and actual MPG is 24.49%.

Airmax Remote’s managing director Richard Perham said: “We firmly believe that misuse of company fuel cards and exaggerated mileage claims are set to become a thing of the past.

"Airmax Remote’s technology delivers complete accuracy and definitive reporting to identify fuel savings for fleet operators.”

“Additionally, recognising the growing market trends towards alternative fuel types, we will be working with customers to provide insight into which of their drivers are most suitable for electric and plug-in vehicles by accurately monitoring existing fuel usage resulting from analysis of mapping, distances travelled and reasons for the journey.”
