True Fuel Score helps reduce fuel waste

March 14, 2017
Vnomics Corporation has announced a new balanced driver scoring model for True Fuel, its stand-alone, OEM agnostic fuel optimization solution.

Vnomics Corporation has announced a new balanced driver scoring model for True Fuel, its stand-alone, OEM agnostic fuel optimization solution.

The new scoring model, named True Fuel Score, includes distinct, normalized assessments of driver fuel efficiency in three key areas—engine control, speeding and idling—as well as a blended overall “True Fuel” score.

True Fuel Score presents a composite rating of the three highest fuel-wasting behaviors, combining new Idling and Speeding scores with the current Vnomics Engine Control score. The new scores are normalized for actual operating conditions so drivers will experience fair scoring. Drivers are scored only on what they can control.

The new Speeding score assesses both the duration and severity of highway speed over a set threshold. The new Idling score segments and measures approved and unapproved idling. Approved idle time (such as short stops in traffic) is not included in a driver’s Idling score and statistics.

Speeding and Idling scores complement the existing Vnomics Engine Control Score, which measures how well the driver maintains proper engine speed given load and operating conditions, whether through careful acceleration for automatic transmissions or gear selection for manual transmissions.

The new True Fuel Score combines these three key fuel waste behaviors into one composite GPA-like assessment of the driver’s real-world fuel efficiency performance, normalized for operating conditions to be fair and balanced.

All scores can be accessed on the newly enhanced Vnomics customer web portal, which now includes detailed analyses of Engine Control, Idling and Speeding behaviors. With these changes, fleet managers can provide information to drivers on how they can improve fuel efficiency in these areas. This detailed accounting of fuel loss can also be used to augment Vnomics’ in-cab driver coaching to change behavior.
