In order to see the Consumption per hour data of your fleet, go to Management > Fleet panel and the following screen will be displayed to you:
On the upper part of the panel, on the View filter, click on the Consumption per hour option.
You will see the following screen:
It contains the following information:
|License plate||Identification of the vehicle.|
|Total consumption||Total consumption of the vehicle in the defined period.|
|Total time||Total time with ignition ON in the defined period.|
Consumption [L/hour] = Total consumption / Total time
This is the calculated consumption/hour
|Used fuel/hour||Reference value for consumption/hour.|
Difference between the calculated consumption/hour and the used fuel/hour in the defined period.
NOTE: if the difference is higher than (+/-) 5% of the used fuel/hour (used ratio), the value presented in the difference column will be in red. Otherwise, it will be in black.
At the very end of the panel, you will also have a couple of features that provide you interesting information about your fleet. For the total consumption and total time columns, you will have the following mathematical operations:
For the consumption/hour, used fuel/hour and difference, you will have the following mathematical operations:
You can access them by clicking the drop down menu at the very end of each column, and selecting one of the available operations:
You will see the result of the selected option bellow the drop down menu button:
The calculated ratios depend on the time periods for which they are calculated. For instance, a vehicle may have a calculated consumption of 30L/hour in August and 19L/hour in September. In this case, the L/hour ratio depends on the exact consumption which occurred in a period, as well as on the number of hours which the ignition was ON.
However, some organizations, like construction companies, need to have a reference value for the L/hour ratio. This is so because they want to establish a price for their service to the customer. In Frotcom that reference value for L/hour is called Used consumption and can be found in Administration > Vehicles > Management (you can also find instructions on how to change it).
Alternatively, you can also change the vehicle's L/hour in the Management > Fleet panel. For that, select a vehicle by ticking on the respective box on the left part of each row:
After ticking the desired vehicle, click on the drop-down menu at the upper left part of the screen:
The following panel will be displayed to you:
On the Vehicles field, you will see the selected vehicle.
On the Set used consumption field, you will be able to choose between two options for the used cost consideration:
|Set used cost option||Description|
|Use calculated value in the period||
Frotcom will copy the calculated L/hour in the used fuel/hour ratio.
This option is recommended when you want to accept the calculated L/hour to become your new Used fuel/hour.
|Define new value manually||
After selection this option, the following field becomes available:
Click on the Click to add link and a free text box will be available for you to define the new Used consumption:
After you select the L/hour, click on the Change button to confirm your actions.
This operation can also be done for several vehicles in just one step. For that, just select all the desired vehicles before you open the Set used consumption panel. In this way, you are able to set the value for more than one vehicle at a time.
