See every fuel fill from the comfort of your office
With the DFuel software you can follow fuel being filled into your fleet vehicles from any remote fuel station. You can keep track of what the levels are in each individual vehicle and can make informed decisions on the fly. We make managing vehicles easier for the fleet manager.
Fuel theft occurs in a number of ways including siphoning from the tank, draining from the return line, filling extra containers at the garage whilst refueling and obtaining slips for amounts exceeding the actual volume filled. With Digit fuel management these problems can be eliminated and the other benefits of the system are sure to make your business more profitable. Go and see here just how they steal fuel
Some software features
LIVE fuel level. During live tracking one can see how much fuel each vehicle has on board. Fuel Added on daily trip reports details how much fuel is added in litres and where the refuelling occurred. Fuel theft SMS directly to your phone the moment fuel is taken by draining or siphoning. Reports of fuel usage between any two dates automatically calculating l/100km and km/litre. Instant report of all fuel used in a month, as well as total fuel currently in all your vehicles. Information can be used to see litres per hour for generators and earth moving equipment. Using the area calculation the information can also be used to determine litres per Ha. (For agricultural applications)
The demand for fuel management has reached a point where it is almost becoming a standard requirement for any fleet manager. The diesel fuel management sensor works in conjunction with your Digit tracking system to keep a permanent live fuel gauge running on your system. Once installed and calibrated the user can expect average accuracy of 99% or better.
Depending on the shape and size of the tank, once calibrated, accuracy is typically better than 1% error. With training and support from the Digit team, we will give you the tools to understand this technology so that it becomes the most valuable tool in your expense control.
As a fleet manager you would want a overview of the full day’s fuel usage of any given fleet vehicle. With the digit fleet and fuel management system you can have the full usage graph for the day at the press of a button. You can then have a quick overview of where fuel was added (as in the example here) and by clicking at the point of interest it will actually give you the location and time the vehicle was at that specific point.

Stop Diesel and Fuel Theft
The physical protection of fuel is vital as fuel is an escalating material operational cost, therefore the installation of anti theft devices that “work” is crucial. Anti syphoning devices works great for a few days but it is the most costly, as the fuel is not protected from theft and proper diesel monitoring is not implemented.
A few Facts about Diesel Theft
Diesel has become a liquid currency for money ,food ,consumables. In rural areas in africa Diesel taxi’s ,garages ,diesel depots and “small” transport companies want your diesel and willing pay less for stolen diesel. Side fueling happens when fuel is paid for a garages but some of it is dispensed into a container standing next to the truck or when the vehicle moves it is placed inside a taxi for cash paid to the driver and diesel attendant. Most of the anti-siphoning devices don’t work, and do not prevent side fueling. The daily “redistribution” of 5-25ltr, 25-50ltr plus is the budget killer, it will not be picked up in the fleet management control and if you have a fleet of 10 vehicles or more this can be a massive amount of fuel yearly, lost, die to miss management. anti syphoning devices do not work, drivers are highly resourceful and see diesel theft as their “right” to complement their income. They utilize electric pumps, drills, pop rivets , fueling points etc. in their quest to siphon fuel. Diesel theft amounts to 15-20 % of all diesel sold in South Africa via redistribution. Water “ carriers” and spaza shops on the side of road are co-conspirators, there are even diesel dispensaries in townships around business parks that your driver simply drives through and fuel gets stolen while he sits and waits. With logistics and fleet owned companies YES! the client pays for the fuel, but you still lose money as it is formula based and not actual fuel lost is included. On the border there is a trend for volume top-ups of stolen fuel with water dilution together with a oil/Parrafin mix or benzine. There will be an indication on our fuel monitoring system the moment water is introduced into the tank. This can have a negative affect on your vehicle performance and cause damage to the fleet vehicles engine.
