       “Automotive Fleet” April, 2010

“Even when comprehensive vehicle selection,
  right sizing, fuel card data mining, and
  exception report programs are deployed,
  effective fuel management ultimately depends
  on one key player:”


              “THE DRIVER”
Have We Avoided Driver Training?

• Presumed efficient already?

• Perfection in Driving Habits?

• Untrainable?

• Not our Job

• Easier to address hardware than people
Can/Should Driver Behavior be
         Modified?
Why Should You Care?

• Driver Training Isn’t your Job

• Drivers Don’t Work for you

• Drivers Won’t Listen

• Drivers Don’t Care
Why Should You Care?

• Driver Training Isn’t your Job
   – Subject Matter Expert

• Drivers Don’t Work for you
   – No Hierarchy Involved

• Drivers Won’t Listen
   – They’d be More Attentive

• Drivers Don’t Care
   – Results Show They Care – A Lot
Examples:

• Novo Nordisk – Driver Training spearheaded by
  Fleet Mgr saved 858,787 gallons
• Bison Transport – Driver Training/Incentive cut
  713,264 gallons
• Cat “Driver Reward”: In-House Program that
  rewards drivers for fuel efficiency
• AstraZeneca trained Eco Driving reducing
  emissions by 367 metric tons/yr.
• Poland Spring ranked drivers for Idling and
  posted the results on a board saving 8000
  gallons/yr.

Vehicle Decal:
What the Experts Say:
• Excessive speed is the largest single factor in
  reduced fuel mileage. Reduce speed to a
  reasonable level of say 60 mph and eliminate
  all non-essential stops. A general rule of thumb
  is that every mph increase above 50 mph
  reduces fuel mileage by 0.1 mpg.

  help

• Train Driving Techniques that will conserve
  fuel – Eco Driving

• Incentive Program
    Introducing….
Employee Fuel Incentive
       Program
Employee Fuel Conservation
Incentive Program Eligibility:


 Employees who drive the same County
  vehicle exclusively
 Participate in Eco-Driver Training Class
 Sign an Incentive Agreement
 Term – 12 Months
 If Fuel Efficiency Improves > 5% County will

What did the Program Cost??
     Potential Incentive???


Annual Miles/Year =           10,000

Current MPG =                  13

Ann Fuel Cost @ $3.00/gal =   $2307

Improved MPG (10%) =          14.3

Employee’s Share =             $97
            Potential Incentive?



Annual Miles/Yr.     =         20,000

Current Avg MPG =               10
Annual Fuel Cost @ $3/gal =   $6,000

10+% Improved MPG =            11.2
Annual Fuel Cost @ $3/gal =   $5,357

Employees Share:              $321.50
