Geotab has announced support for compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel level and temperature on all Momentum Fuel Technologies CNG fueling tanks and systems. According to the companies, fleets with CNG vehicles can now have the powerful visibility into their fuel usage and driver behavior that is already offered to other vehicles using Geotab’s fleet management solution.
The companies say this integration can address the industry’s heretofore limited ability to use telematics to report CNG level from the vehicle for accurate fuel level readings. Together, Momentum Fuel Technologies and Geotab developed the integration using Geotab’s patented curve logic algorithm to receive high-resolution data via the vehicle’s diagnostic port. The Geotab GO device transmits data from Momentum Fuel Technologies systems via cellular networks, delivering comprehensive reports and dashboards to readily and easily visualize trends and monitor levels, the companies explained.
“The ability to support these parameters allows fleets to combat driver range anxiety in addition to providing accurate fuel usage reports by vehicle, allowing them to understand fuel usage by vehicle or by driver,” said Scott Sutarik, Geotab’s associate vice president of commercial vehicle solutions. “Developing this capability for CNG vehicles, which according to the U.S. Department of Energy are said to have 6% to 11% less emissions, is another step in Geotab’s long-standing commitment to creating a greener world.”
