Automated Fueling

With FleetLINK a driver starts the fueling process by removing the nozzle from the dispenser and inserting it into the vehicle's fuel fill tube. All vehicle information is automatically sent from the vehicle's VIU (vehicle identification unit) through the tank transceiver loop and nozzle receiver loop antennas to the VIT (vehicle identification terminal). The VIT sends the information to the System2 FSC (fuel site controller), which authorizes fueling and automatically records the vehicle and transaction data. The fueling transaction is automatically ended when the nozzle is removed from the fuel fill tube, so fuel cannot be dispensed into an unauthorized vehicle or container. All transactions are stored in memory for retrieval and report printing. Additional system benefits include:

•Uses low frequency radio wave technology to automatically capture important data with the fuel nozzle directly from the user's vehicle
•No need for the driver to insert a card, key, or manually enter mileage and engine hours
•Helps ensure accurate fleet maintenance scheduling, vehicle accountability, site security, and fuel control
