    Introduction

    Fuel Hub allows you to track the fuel performance of the vehicles in your fleet. You can access the data from the Fuel section on the Motive (formerly Keeptruckin) Fleet Dashboard.

     

    Steps: Managing Fuel Hub Vehicle details 

    1. Login to Fleet Dashboard, click on Fuel in the left-hand side menu and then click on the Vehicles tab.
    The Vehicle List View shows a leaderboard view of your fleet across various metrics and helps identify top and bottom-performing vehicles.

    The Vehicle List will show the following metrics:

    • Avg MPG: Your driver’s average Miles Per Gallon performance.
    • Moving MPG: Miles Per Gallon performance when the vehicle is in motion.
    • Total Dist: Total miles driven by the driver.
    • Utilization: Time your vehicle was driving as a percentage of the total time your engine was running and PTO was engaged (idle time + PTO time + drive time).
    • Driving: Total fuel consumed when the vehicle is in motion.
    • Idling: Total fuel consumed when a vehicle is stationary and the PTO is off but the engine is running.
    • PTO Time: Total time PTO was engaged across all aux inputs on the vehicle

     

    (Note: this would show up if at least one of your connected AUX inputs has equipment type mentioned as PTO)

     

    • Fuel Cost: Total cost of fuel consumed by the driver.

    2. You can also adjust the date range and set filters for Vehicle Types, Date Range, Drivers & Vehicles, Distance, and With or Without Fuel Data to narrow down the list of vehicles whose fuel performance you want to observe.

    4. The Summary bar will allow you to have a general overview on how the vehicle has been performing for a given date range.

    • Fuel Economy: Indicates the average distance the vehicle can travel per unit volume of fuel used, measured by miles per gallon (MPG) or kilometers per liter (km/L).
    • Distance: The total distance covered by the vehicle in that time.
    • Fuel Used: The amount of fuel that has been consumed by that vehicle.
    • Fuel Cost: The cost of fuel consumed by the vehicle.
    • Idle Fuel: Total fuel consumed when a vehicle is idling (stationary but the engine is running).
    • Fuel Wasted: Fuel that has been wasted while idling on the vehicle.

You can also compare your vehicle fuel performance against the average fuel consumed by other vehicles in the Motive network. Click on Avg MPG to get an estimate of your vehicle’s average miles per gallon.
