Reduce Your Fuel Bill With a Fuel Card

There are lot of ways to reduce your fuel bill. If you have the money you can always get a new more fuel efficient vehicle, a good idea is also to change your driving habits from the way you drive your car to the routes you take.

If you are an individual or a business with a fleet of cars, that has a high fuel consumption, you should consider a fuel card. Simply put, fuel cards provide an easy way for drivers to pay for fuel without the hassle of cash and debit/credit cards. Fuel card services are not simply payment solutions, they also include reporting, information and optional extras, that help improve efficiency of your fleet. That means no more receipts, reduced costs and also better knowledge of your drivers’ consumption.

“If are considering a fuel card there are sites, such as UKFuels.co.uk, which offer a wide selection of fuel cards that they recommend based on your current fuel consumption and transport routes. These fuel cards are usually issued with no charge or joining fee allowing business owners access to an on-line card management system for easy planning.

They also offer one of the largest service station and truck stop networks in the country with around 6500 sites including Shell, Texaco, BP, Esso, Total, Jet, Morrisons Supermarkets and Murco.

Remember choosing a fuel card is not as easy as it sounds,.Back in 2008, Fleet News reported that more than a quarter of fleet managers are unhappy with the level of service offered by their fuel card supplier. So do your own research and consider all the factors to make sure you get the fuel card that’s best for you!

Finally, make sure you and your drivers always fill up your cars with the right fuel. According to DailyMail, motorists filling up their cars with wrong fuel costs Britain £150 million a year. That’s a lot of dumb money, spent on something that can easily be avoided.
