Fuel consumption figures and emissions data: countdown to WLTP?

by Eleonora Malacarne on May 29, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Fuel consumption figures and emissions data countdown to WLTP

While we can definitely say that fuel consumption figures never stop being key data for fleet managers, the whole transport and vehicle manufacturing sectors are paying particularly close attention to the current news concerning the abolition of the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) emissions and fuel economy testing regime in favour of the new WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure) regime.

 

By the deadline of September 1st, 2018, vehicle manufacturers will have to make sure all new cars and lighter vans have been tested under the new protocol, which should—at least this is the idea—provide the relevant consumers and fleet operators with more representative fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures.

 

The WLTP has been developed within the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) supported by the European Commission to provide more realistic test conditions, in an attempt to better reflect what drivers experience in the real world. The test will eventually be combined with the RDE, the new on-road ‘Real Driving Emissions’ test, whose ‘Step 1’ has been active since September 2017. In RDE tests, a vehicle with specific equipment installed is driven on public roads and over a wide range of different conditions collecting data to verify that legislative caps for pollutants such as NOx are not exceeded.

 

While there seems to be confusion about the different types of fuel consumption and emissions testing, the fleet sector is already hypothesising about the implications of the September 1st deadline: will there be changes in the benefit-in-kind taxes? Will there be confusion due to the possible coexistence of two identical vehicles having different fuel economy figures because they have been approved over different drive cycles? And will vehicle manufacturers be forced to offer heavy discounts on cars that don’t meet standards, at least within the grace period that some countries already offered after the 1st of September?

 

In this current state of confusion, a few days ago the Swedish manufacturer Volvo (one of the most typical company car brands) became the first to have every model across their car range comply with the new WLTP rules. This includes all petrol and diesel-powered models, plus the collection of hybrid vehicles offered by the Swedish brand. Quite a significant step: as from September 2018 all new cars will have to be certified according to the WLTP test and not NEDC, and cars that aren’t WLTP-compliant by the September deadline will be barred from sale.

 

While both fleets and motorists are still experiencing some confusion and automakers start getting their heads around WLTP, others are objecting that even with a test that more closely mimics real driving conditions with supposedly more realistic data there may still be a gap between the test and reality. If you really wish to be in possession of real fuel consumption figures, only technology measuring real consumption data can provide a realistic answer.

4 ways driving style management can make the difference for your fleet

4 ways driving style management can make the difference for your fleet

Driver behaviour has a major impact on the profitability of any business operating a fleet; but despite that, driving style management is something often overlooked as it can come across to drivers that fleet operators are using the revealing information to ‘punish’ bad driving behaviour. In some companies the tracking units are, in other words, seen as negative control measures rather than a boon for the company as a whole.

 

The lack of data obtained from driving style management in businesses that haven’t adopted vehicle tracking or fleet management technology also often results in training sessions for the team which are merely box-ticking exercises for health and safety compliance purposes, when in actual fact the time and resources used to train drivers could have a wiser usage.

 

This is surely one of the ways in which driving style management can positively impact on the running of your fleet—what then are four more ways to convince you it’s about time to look into it if you haven’t done so already?

 

#1 Tyres costs decrease

Harsh cornering, harsh braking, harsh acceleration and deceleration cost are proved to directly impact on tyre spend. Imagine if all of your drivers were habitually used to these kinds of driving practices, what would be the impact on your fleet? If you are able to detect this driving style among your team, you would be able to correct it and decrease the expenditure. According to an AA research carried out on around 2,200 vans, drivers who never braked harshly or only occasionally incurred tyre costs averaging £172 per annum (around €197), whereas the costs of tyres for more persistent harsh braking was around £283 per annum (around €323), an increase of 73% in costs.

 

#2 Lowering global maintenance costs

Again, rapid acceleration and harsh use of brakes negatively impact on the global maintenance costs. According to the same AA research, the total two-year maintenance spend in the same 2,200 vans sampled were found to increase significantly (up to 160%) dependent on the number of maximum throttle ‘floor to the floor’ events. This increase is seen in all aspects of maintenance including routine service, brakes and general services. Getting started with driving style management would surely benefit your fleet from this point of view.

 

#3 No more fuel waste

Poor driving is also directly connected to fuel waste, as some particular driving styles are more fuel thirsty than others. Particularly, according to the AA research, significant increases in fuel costs are observed as revving and throttle usage increase. If you have a system able to detect inefficient driving behaviours with a view to correcting them, you would expend less fuel.

 

#4 See how the global number of collisions decreases

The behaviour that usually contributes to wasted fuel and higher expenditure is also the least safe. Apart from that, not only are younger drivers at risk because of their inexperience, but seasoned ones could also be making poor driving decisions which could be influenced by stress. Drivers who are heavy on the acceleration and/or prone to speeding will have more collisions and claims, which is not a surprise per se, but if you are able to detect these habits through driving style management, you are also more able to make the necessary improvements.

The 4 fuel related problems fleet directors no longer want to worry about

by Eleonora Malacarne on Feb 8, 2018 9:00:00 AM

The 4 fuel related problems fleet directors no longer want to worry about.jpg

In the present global situation, any company using vehicles for daily tasks are eager to delve more into fuel data to disclose fuel related problem or discover a way to monitor and decrease fuel costs. Fleet directors are constantly looking for ways to optimise any type of action related to the management of their fuel and prevent those costs from increasing and impacting; but what solutions are fleet directors looking for in this field, and what are the problems with which they would rather no longer be concerned?

1. Unauthorized fuel usage

This aspect covers different fuel related issues across fleets. Unauthorized fuel usage can actually manifest differently within the same fleet, whether it’s out-and-out fuel theft, using company vehicles or fuel out of permissible hours, or stealing fuel in other ways. Fleet managers ought also to consider the problem of purchases from a fuel card that cover items not strictly related to fuel (hence, why it might be important to restrict products available to buy with such cards).

2. Increasing fuel spend

Fuel spend might be increasing because your business is more active, but you might actually find out that there is unauthorized fuel usage, poorly planned routes or drivers not sensitized properly to the effect their driving habits have on consumption. The combination of all of these factors, and an unclear pricing from your provider, might cause unexpectedly higher fuel spend—which would surely not happen if you had a fuel management system that was able to prompt you with solutions should any issues appear...

3. Unclear fuel policy

It can be seen as a very basic, but sometimes we take these things for granted. If it is true that the rudiments of fuel card use or fuel purchases for fleet drivers are fairly clear and pretty much down to common sense, why not avoiding misunderstandings by clearly detailing what is allowed in terms of fuel purchases or how fuel cards should be used. A lack of clarity is the enemy of fleet managers and potentially leads to the kind of problems fleet directors surely wish to avoid. Use our fleet policy template and modify it to deal with fuel management or use simply as a starting point if you wish to completely reassess your fleet policy.

4. Undisclosed impact of maintenance and driving on fuel

The correlation between driving style and fuel consumption is quite clear; despite this, not many fleet directors point it out to their drivers when it comes to training them in how to consume less fuel. We are obviously not talking about robotically using practices that save fuel when it is necessary to adapt according to the road conditions or journey; but remember that in general, safer driving corresponds with saving fuel. Idling, harsh braking, rapid acceleration, speeding, or even driving with a vehicle that has issues and is not correctly maintained, does culminate in a higher spend (and can be extremely risky as well). Show to your drivers how important this is; explain it to them and make real life examples to support you—they will understand as this eventually impacts on global safety.

Fuel reports calculating average consumption per 100 km, fuel purchase information coming in in real time and driving events are all metrics that allow a deeper understanding of how fuel is spent and whether there are any errors in the fuel process that suggests fuel receipts do not match actual usage.

Fuel efficiency under cold temperatures: why fleet mileage drops in winter?

by Eleonora Malacarne on Nov 7, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Fuel efficiency under cold temperatures why fleet mileage drops in winter.jpg

Dealing with fleet vehicles in winter, whether for driving or for maintenance, is completely different from what we usually practice during the year. From particularly cold conditions to severe winter weather, we have shared our advice on how to prepare fleets for the cold season and adapt driving style accordingly. It is important  that all fleets are prepared and share this information, but there is also some advice we can offer to help tackle lower fuel efficiency in colder conditions.


In the winter season it is a fact that fuel efficiency drops in mpg over every 100 km driven, so that global fuel consumption increases noticiably. While a cause for this might be the less efficient driving style suited to the road conditions, selecting lower gears and slowing down more, there are still some actions we could take to improve fuel efficiency in cold temperatures.

 


1. Parking depot


If your company has a covered parking lot or a closed depot where you can park vehicles overnight, be sure to park vehicles in it. This will keep their start-up temperature moderate, lessening the strain placed on the battery and ensuring engine oil remains fluid.


2.  Tyre pressure checks


Remember to check tyre pressure on a consistent basis; even more so as the temperature drops. Changes in temperature affect tyre pressure. It has been estimated that fuel economy declines 0.4 percent for every 1 psi drop. Make sure you have a scheduled process for this and tyre pressure is always at the recommended psi values.


3. Try not to overload battery


Unless a device is strictly necessary for your fleet operation, do not use electrical components or demisters or even seat warmers for longer than necessary. Of course, common sense dictates that visibility is a priority in challenging driving conditions, but do not go beyond what is necessary and put an excessive load on the battery at the detriment to fuel economy.

 

4. Try to minimise idling


Idling is much more common in winter than during the rest of the year. Resist the temptation to 'idle' your vehicle—remember,  an idling engine gets zero miles to the gallon. Consider also that idling the engine does nothing to warm up the tyres and drivetrain. Even in the coldest weather, you can begin driving after a few seconds from a cold start—keep speeds low/moderate and use gentle acceleration until the temperature gauge starts to climb.

Fuel spend reporting: how to make sure nothing is left behind

by Eleonora Malacarne on Oct 3, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Fuel spend reporting how to make sure nothing is left behind.jpg

Fuel spend reporting is extremely useful for fleets as fuel is probably the highest source of cost. Despite fuel being a single source of costs, there are actually a number of actions you can explore to make your fuel spend reporting more accurate and complete—assuming you do not already use fuel management software.
 
Here are some of the actions you can take to make sure you record where every drop of fuel you purchase ends up going:

1. Do check on personal mileage
 
Some of our customers are surprised to learn that their drivers have taken detours or have chosen a particular place to go for food or personal errands. While of course it might be part of the job to take lunch breaks and find somewhere to eat, is it necessary to depart too far from the planned route, especially for personal errands and admin? These actions still impact on your fuel costs and need to be taken into consideration. Having said that, it is possible to work out a personal mileage policy or think about a solution for drivers looking for a suitable place to break and eat so that this particular expense doesn’t become excessive.
 
2. Try to estimate quarter/monthly fleet fuel consumption
 
Making monthly or quarterly estimations of your global fuel consumption based on your average can help if you do not expect to stray far from your normal jobs or travel routine; any significant discrepancies from the average estimate should ring an alarm in terms of fuel consumption—has something specific happened with vehicles/fuel purchases/work load?
 
3. Document odometers
 
If you still do not have the technological tools to record the money you spend on fuel, keep track of your odometer reading and your fuel purchases to calculate how much you spend on fuel measured over distance. You can then set an average in litres per 100 km that could be considered your average consumption (although there are many more modern systems that can help you determine the statistical mile/litre average much more easily!).

 
4. Think about factors not strictly related to fuel
 
This is unfortunately something you are not necessarily able to keep track of if you aren’t reliant on technology: driver behaviour, vehicle maintenance and tyres, for example. You never really appreciate how these factors impact your fuel spend until you’ve acquired a technological solution that is able to track everything. Admittedly, you can still cross-check maintenance invoices with fuel consumption using odometers and bills and try to notice any suspicious patterns.


 
We recommend the use of a technological solution like SynX Perform for fuel management, not only for tracking purchase and consumption but also to provide information on other influencing factors such as driving style and global maintenance.

Controlling your fleet budget: how to find money lost in fuel expenses

by Eleonora Malacarne on Sep 5, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Controlling your fleet budget how to find money lost in fuel expenses.jpeg

Fleet managers spend a lot of time dedicated to the control of the fleet budget. Fleet directors devote hours combing through budgets and expenses for opportunities to make savings. The idea is to focus on where money has disappeared. But there could be areas that aren’t properly considered due to lack of time and resources.

So when set to the task of controlling their fleet budget, where can fleet managers find money lost in fuel expenses? Fuel expense is no doubt the biggest cost fleets incur, but apart from the strictly evident fuel expenses checked while verifying fuel bills, where can further losses be looked for?

 

1. Fuel theft: there are a few ways in which fuel theft may occur. Despite the apparent lack of resources to do it, fraud might still happen. It might be your fuel is going somewhere and not necessarily into the fleet vehicle tank.


 
2. Purchases at the fuel station: if you have no regulation in your policy or in your fleet card settings, fleet drivers might just buy non-fuel items without you knowing it—have you ever wondered how much your drivers coffee consumption can add up to?

 

3. Fuel purchased on weekends: hopefully you already looked for this, but what about checking if all fuel purchases have been carried out during working time or if there are any particularly high expense on Monday/Friday—possibly the result of which is in breach of policy?

 

4. Cash payment: if you exclusively use fuel cards so as to avoid the distribution of cash to drivers, you won’t probably incur this. Paying by cash implies that anything can be counted as fuel: coffee, food or other items might be considered essential for the driver, but we need to determine what is absolutely necessary to power the vehicle rather than the driver.

 

5. Detours: if you had the opportunity to read one of our many articles on the subject, you might have seen how much impact detours make when considering fuel spend.

 

6. Unmanaged wear and tear or skipped maintenance: if you do not tackle vehicle issues or do appropriate servicing, chances are that you are spending more on fuel than you should.


 
7. What about driver behaviour? The driving style can seriously impact fuel spend.

 

Here’s some food for thought: it’s all about delving into fuel expenses more deeply—if you are unable to do this, check out how a fuel management system can assist by calling us.

Petrol and diesel vans and cars sale: Britain to ban both from 2040

by Eleonora Malacarne on Aug 15, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Petrol and diesel vans and cars sale Britain to ban both from 2040.jpeg

Following on from an announcement by French environment minister Nicholas Hulot to outlaw all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040, the UK government has decided to follow suit with exactly the same pledge. The first country to formally undertake such a measure was Norway, who, one year ago, announced a similar ban but with a much more radical deadline—2025.

The measure will also affect hybrid vehicles and dramatically increase the sale of electric cars, which would be the only type allowed: as it stands, they only constitute 1% of the UK market. The measure is part of a broader government plan including further interventions on public transport, taxi and cycle paths.

The move is needed because of the unnecessary and avoidable impact that poor air quality is having on people’s health. Ministers believe it poses the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK, costing up to £2.7bn (€2.98bn) in lost productivity in one recent year. The UK government is providing councils with new funding to accelerate development of local plans, as part of an ambitious £3bn programme to clean up dirty air around the roads.

The environment secretary, Michael Gove, will be hoping for a better reception when he publishes the final document on Wednesday following months of legal wrangling.

A briefing on parts of the plan, seen by the Guardian, repeats the heavy focus on the steps that can be taken to help councils improve air quality in specific areas where emissions have breached EU thresholds.

Measures to be urgently brought in by local authorities that have repeatedly breached EU rules include retrofitting buses and other public transport, changing road layouts and altering features such as roundabouts and speed humps.

Reprogramming traffic lights will also be included in local plans, with councils being given £255m to accelerate their efforts. Local emissions hotspots will be required to layout their plans by March 2018 and finalise them by the end of the year. A targeted scrappage scheme is also expected to be included.

Some want the countrywide initiative to follow in the footsteps of London, which is introducing a £10 toxic “T-charge” that will be levied on up to 10,000 of the oldest, most polluting vehicles every weekday.

Driving techniques that boost your fleet fuel economy: an interesting infographic

by Eleonora Malacarne on Aug 3, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Driving techniques that boost your fleet fuel economy.jpeg

Fleet managers reiterating the importance of driving techniques in order to boost fuel economy may feel repetitious for most drivers; but the simple truth is if you are able to properly address driving behaviour, it definitely has long-term positive effects for your fleet in terms of costs, safety and environment.

We recently came across an interesting infographic on driving behaviours that boost your fuel economy published by On Stride Financial and entitled 13 Driving Tactics to Save Fuel, though the infographic has been created for end-users and not for fleets, there are actually some useful principles to take from it in order to adjust driver behaviour to a more fuel efficient style.

Driving techniques that boost your fleet fuel economy an interesting infographic 2.png

We have listed the points of the infographic followed by our opinion of these tips. Have a good read through and let us know what you think!

 
1. Use google maps to avoid driving in traffic jams—we promote route planning, and, what’s more, with our technology you can do it with Google Maps. There are history options for traffic as well, so you can detect the most fuel efficient route for your drivers and plan accordingly.

2. Shed unnecessary weight—according to the Energy Saving Trust publication for the UK Department of Transport entitled Advising fuel efficient driving techniques for your fleet, anything adding weight to a vehicle increases fuel consumption.

3. Drive between 55-65 MPH on the motorway—the speed advised by the AA quoted in the infographic reminds us that excessive speed needs to be avoided.

4. Avoid unnecessary overtaking—we do agree with the fact that overtaking should be kept to a minimum and only attempted when strictly necessary as it can be risky. For some vehicle types and on some roads, it is also forbidden.

5. Change gears at the right time—using the gears wisely helps you cut fuel bills. According to the Energy Saving Trust publication, research into the effect of the use of gears on fuel consumption shows that both petrol and diesel cars shifting up at low RPM and 50% accelerator position result in the lowest fuel consumption.

6. Close car windows and use a/c at high speeds—here we actually do not completely agree, as having the air conditioning turned on always impacts on a vehicle. According to the Energy Saving Trust publication, air conditioning systems pump (compress) a fluid (refrigerant) around a circuit: the fluid is made to evaporate in one part of the circuit (absorbing the heat) and condenses in another part (dispelling the heat). With vehicle a/c, the fluid in the circuit evaporates within the vehicle due to the heat and condenses at a point outside where the heat is dissipated. The compressor that drives the movement of this fluid is powered by the vehicle engine, increasing fuel consumption.

7. Avoid switching off the engine at mid-drive—here we also disagree with the infographic, as any unnecessary idling lasting more than one minute should be avoided at all costs.

8., 9., 10. Going easy on the throttle, maintaining a steady speed and being gentle on the brakes are all behaviours we wholeheartedly support: a smooth driving style, anticipating the road ahead to avoid unnecessary braking and acceleration as well as avoiding dangerous driving events such as rapid acceleration or harsh braking.

11., 12., 13. Use the right oil, keep your tyres inflated and regularly service your car—these all comprise the best practices of fleet maintenance. Vehicles need to be regularly maintained with the suitable products, tyre pressure checked regularly and servicing performed; it helps fuel savings but also improves global safety.

How appropriate tyre maintenance cuts your fuel bills and ensures legal compliance

by Eleonora Malacarne on Jul 25, 2017 9:00:00 AM

How appropriate tyre maintenance cuts your fuel bills and ensures legal compliance.jpeg

Tyre maintenance is not only an essential aspect of fleet maintenance that improves roadworthiness and safety, but is also, if managed in the right way, about cutting down on your fuel bills. If you are a fleet manager, you are most probably already aware that checking the tyre pressure on your fleet’s vehicles increases the safety of your drivers, but you might not be fully aware that appropriate tyre maintenance also cuts fuel consumption.

 

However, many cars and vans are currently operating on underinflated tyres. They are not only ignoring the benefits of maintained tyres for fuel economy purposes, but also putting drivers and other road users at high risks. There is the continual risk that a roadside inspection can force a vehicle off the road with immediate effect. A recent survey from UK charity Tyresafe states that 57% of vehicles—cars and vans—are running on underinflated tyres. The impact of skipping tyre maintenance (checking tyre tread and pressure) has been calculated and is substantial: £600m/€678.9m is spent unnecessarily on fuel because of incorrect maintenance.

 

When vehicles are driven with tyres that are below the recommended pressure, the risks of incident increases sharply, as well as fuel consumption. As a matter of fact, the surface of the tyre in contact with the road is cut by half when the tyre pressure is 7psi below the recommended pressure. The study by Tyresafe found that more than a third of tyres are being driven 8psi and more under the recommended pressures. Dangers arise because the vehicle is more difficult to control, particularly in wet weather. An underinflated tyre increases roll resistance, reduces the tyre tread lifespan and increases fuel consumption. In extreme cases, the tyre could even burst.

 

These numbers show a lack of concern from drivers and fleets regarding the dangers and the costs of underinflated tyres. We advise your drivers to check tyre pressures regularly, before every long journey and especially if vehicles are under heavier load than usual. A proper tyre pressure will decrease the risks of incident for your drivers, thus increasing general roadworthiness and helping you save money on fuel. Remember that it is an essential part of the recommended daily walkaround checklist that are both recommended by RSA/HSA of Ireland and the UK’s DVSA—so its omission might interfere with the compliance of your fleet.

 

Recommendations from the DVSA regarding tyres daily walkaround checks include checking as much of your tyres and wheels as you can see. There must be

  • a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm
  • sufficient inflation of each tyre
  • no deep cuts in the sidewall
  • no cord visible anywhere on the tyre
  • no missing or insecure wheel-nuts

You can get three penalty points on your licence for each tyre that isn’t safe and legal.

 

HSA/RSA recommend that tyres are checked for

  • pressure
  • damage
  • correct inflation
  • tread depth—the tread must not be worn to the extent that the tread indicator contacts the road surface. The legal minimum tyre tread depth is 1.6mm.
  • deep cuts, cracks, bulges
  • evidence of carcass failure
  • separated or perished rubber

 

Make sure you communicate with your drivers on the importance of checking tyre pressures; and if you need to streamline your fleet maintenance and walkaround checks process, SynX can definitely help.

Learn how driver behaviour management has an impact on your TCO

by Eleonora Malacarne on Jul 18, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Learn how driver behaviour management has an impact on your TCO.jpeg

Driver behaviour and its management do have an extremely important impact on the activity of your fleet, but most of all on the total cost of ownership (TCO), including the direct and indirect costs of a vehicle.

 

If we think about TCO, we should consider not only the 60% running costs in usage of a vehicle itself but also the important 40% attributed to the impact of driver behaviour on the total cost of ownership. Which type of costs are included in the 40% and how do we keep them under control? And what is key to better driver behaviour management?

 

 

1. Fuel consumption

Driver behaviour has a demonstrable impact on fuel—if driving style is aggressive or unsafe, fuel consumption increases and safety becomes an issue.

 

 

2.  Added maintenance

Linked to the former point: if your drivers practice an aggressive style, your vehicle’s roadworthiness could be at risk; it is more likely that your vehicle will suffer wear and tear, not to mention the increased risk of collisions or breakdown…

 

3. Insurance premiums

An unpredictable variable that can swing dramatically if your drivers are putting themselves, other road users and your vehicles at risk—insurance premiums rocket if the number of incidents creep up. But they can be avoided!

 

 

4. Incidents management

When unsafe driving style translates into incidents, it opens a whole new and painful chapter in incident management, investigations as well as legal costs.

 

 

5. Downtime

When aggressive driving results in incident downtime or your vehicles suffer maintenance issues that can be prevented simply by training drivers, it means less time on the road for vehicles that should be doing their job and developing your business

 

 

6. Missed opportunities

Furthermore, less time on the road due to the consequences of bad driving behaviour means less business opportunites.

 

 

Setting up tools for more intelligent driver behaviour management does not equate to a new expense in your fleet costs, but rather, they are a way to recover them and set up processes that can only benefit your business and positively affect your TCO. Get in touch with our experts if you want to learn more.
