“We’re maximizing our time,” says Mobile Thrones CEO Gary Oliver. “We’re not just zigzagging around.”
Mobile Thrones spends an average of $10,000 a month on diesel for its fleet.

When Oliver instituted the GPS devices, he had only one employee. “He wasn’t too crazy about it because he thought I was going to use it as a policing device — and I certainly can do that and I do use it as that,” Oliver said.
But the CEO added that employees are forced to be honest if they make a personal trip on the job. “It will mark their trails pretty well,” he says.

“There’s no telling how much it’s saved me.”

While commercial GPS systems are a big help, remember that a complete fuel management system offers telematics as well as purchasing controls and maintenance scheduling, among a variety of other services. By working with a fuel management professional like FleetCards USA, you can save even more!
