Diesel fuel is a major cost to farmers but where is it all used?
Until now the accurate allocation of fuel costs to a variety of trucks, farm machinery and cars was almost impossible.
This also made it difficult to allocate fuel use by activity (seeding, harvesting etc).
The Smart Fuel controller uses a swipe card in each vehicle to accurately collect usage data that can then be used to allocate to activities.
Typical Fuel Control
A central diesel tank is there for all to use without accurate recording
Poor tank level management
Smarter Fuel Control
A swipe card in each vehicle provides access to the bowser
Accurate tank level management
Detailed recording of usage per activity
Remote Access To Control and/or Monitor:
The diesel pump will be controlled by the system and where possible interlocked with the tank level
Private Vehicle Usage
Proof of usage can be provided for private vehicle usage to satisfy tax office audits
An email message can be sent to the fuel supplier once a low level in the tank has been reached
With each vehicle provided with a swipe card it is possible to allocate certain activities to each card and create usage per activity
The tank level can be calculated based on the initial full fill and subsequent drawdowns or via a level sensor
For gravity fed bowsers without nearby power supply, the system can operate on battery power supplemented by a solar panel
