The Fleet Manager’s Guide to Alternative Fuels

Fleet sustainability initiatives continue to receive strong support from senior management at many companies (State of the Commercial Fleet Market 2013).

But, how do you roll out green initiatives without raising operating costs and exposing your fleet to market fads?

A recent whitepaper from Work Truck Magazine, Going Green, Saving Green: A Fleet Manager’s Guide to Alternative Fuels Best Practices, provides fleet managers with best practices for the cost-effective implementation of alternative fuels in a commercial or government.

Best practices include some research on the following critical topics:

  • Know the station coverage in your area
  • Compare historical fuel costs
  • Calculate the total cost of vehicle ownership
  • Identify and use tax credits
  • Approach fuel conservation comprehensively.

Fleet managers often have many considerations when making investments in new technologies. Cost, compatibility with existing infrastructure, and resource allocation are just a few. With a little research, you’ll have all the tools and information you need to make the best decision for your fleet.
