With this patent, Vnomics says True Fuel is distinguished from other fuel efficiency technologies for its method of recording and comparing vehicle and route segment characteristics when determining fuel use. True Fuel takes into account the impact of vehicle profile and load characteristics and route factors such as slope, traffic controls and volume, weather conditions, time of day, infrastructure conditions and real-time route blockages, the company says.

“Most fleets, particularly large ones, have a mixed configuration of trucks, loads and routes on which they deliver loads,” said Bob Magnant, vice president of product management at Vnomics. “All of those unique characteristics play a role in fuel efficiency. With data from True Fuel, we can isolate some or all of those characteristics and determine how relatively important they are in terms of their impact on fuel economy.”
