Fleet Fuel Maintenance : Bus Health

Whether you’re a bus driver or a fleet owner, operating your vehicle is so much more than just fueling up and turning the key. While Guttman Energy’s Fleet Fuel Cards help ensure the best fuel for your fleet, we also understand that safety and productivity are at the center of your operation. One of the best ways to optimize this experience is by performing regular fleet fuel maintenance on your vehicles. We compiled some tips and tricks to keep your vehicles in top shape, so that you can make the most of your fuel every time you drive. 

Prioritize Proactive Approaches

One of the best ways to begin is to simply ensure you are prepared for all contingencies. Keep tools and spare parts on hand, and make sure you brush up on any owners’ manuals and inspection requirements related to your vehicle. That way, you’ll never be caught off guard by any surprises.

Performing A Maintenance Check

Guttman’s experts recommend keeping a checklist on hand to simplify the process and make it easy to remember exactly what needs monitoring, both inside and outside your vehicle. By monitoring certain aspects of your vehicle, such as correct engine oil levels and leaks, tire pressure and damage/wear, and efficient heating/air conditioning systems, you can catch any small issues that can quickly turn into massive fuel efficiency issues.

While this list is by no means exhaustive depending on your municipality and your passengers’ needs, it provides a great starting point to ensure essentials don’t slip through the cracks. By following Guttman Energy’s intelligent bus and fleet fuel maintenance solutions, you can mitigate the cost of regular bus maintenance to prevent expensive and last-minute fixes. Preventive maintenance saves you excessive time and money. By keeping your bus running properly and safely, you’re more likely to meet state and federal law and ensure the safest ride experience possible for your passengers.
