When your vehicles are idling, they are not contributing to your bottom line. They are simply burning your fuel. According to the EPA, every hour of idle time burns .82 gallons of fuel — that’s almost one gallon of fuel per hour! And, contrary to a popular belief, restarting an engine burns no more fuel than if you spent thirty seconds idling.
Furthermore, 31% of all fuel consumed in the US is estimated to be due to hard driving and excessive speeds. And, excessive speeding may decrease fuel economy by up to 20% — quickly hitting the bottom line.
Azuga™ GPS vehicle tracking technology can be one of the most cost-effective means for managing and reducing unnecessary engine idle time, saving fuel costs, extending the life of vehicles, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
A proven OBDII device from a major Detroit manufacturer, Azuga G2™ “reads” your vehicle’s engine data up to 60 times more often — giving you more accurate, reliable views of what’s really happening in the field.
Only Azuga gives you crucial — and actionable — idling information other systems don’t. Azuga G2 also sends alerts to dispatch and drivers notifying them when they exceed predetermined speed limits, providing immediate feedback to encourage them to slow down. Drivers are more accountable when they know they are being monitored and practice safer driving.
Vehicle monitoring helps reduce idling by as much as 50% on the road and 80% in the yard. Combined with safer driving habits, you get big fuel savings from the get-go!
