#2- Idiot-proofing your fleet: Avoiding the 10 dumbest mistakes you can make managing your fleet fuel expenses

2. Handling Advice Requests

The Problem- Fleet Managers tend to become known as “the car guy” in the company and should not give advice on automotive-related issues, such as what car another company employee should buy.

The Solution- Tell your manager that unless they want to go on deliveries for you, there’s not much you can do for him. But there is something else you can do. Someone from another department may not have a clue what your job is all about, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t teach your fellow employees a little something.  It’s a lot easier to help your colleagues understand your role when you can simply show them your fuel reports online.  Who knows, they just might be really impressed.
