This report is only available to customers who have subscribed to the Verizon Connect® Fuel Module™. If your account includes this feature, but you do not see Fuel Card reports in the Create Reports screen, contact support to arrange for its activation on your account.
If your version of this product includes support for the fuel management module, you can generate reports that summarize the number of fuel purchases within your organization for which the time and location of a fuel purchases (typically at a gas station or fuel depot) correspond with the location of the vehicle for which the purchase was made.
These reports also summarize the number of purchases for which the gas station location and purchase time do not match location of the vehicle at that time. That is, if the correct vehicle was not within half a mile of the fuel stop within 60 minutes of the purchase time, this indicates that the purchase should be followed up.
The options specific to Fuel Card Match Summary reports that you can set are as follows:
- Vehicle, Driver: Which vehicles or drivers should be shown in the report.
- Min Idle to call a Trip: The number of minutes a vehicle must be stopped or idling for it to count as the endpoint of a trip. If the vehicle stops moving for a shorter time than this, it is considered part of the travel time of a trip (such as stops at intersections).
- Max Speed: The maximum speed the vehicle can go before the report lists a speeding exception.
- Max Idle: The maximum number of minutes a vehicle can idle (stop with the engine running) before the idling time is reported as an exception.
- Max Stop Time: The maximum number of minutes a vehicle can stop before starting a new trip. Stops longer than this threshold are reported as exceptions.
- Min Idle Length: The maximum number of minutes that a vehicle must remain stationary for the trip that ends there to be included in the report.
- Enable Grouping: When enabled, you can collapse multiple stops and trips into a single item. Once enabled, you can choose to group stops in three ways:
- Stops at Markers: When selected, all consecutive stops at the same marker are collapsed into a single stop.
- Minimum Travel Distance: All Trips less than the specified distance are collapsed into the previous stop.
- Minimum Travel Time: All trips that are less than the specified time are collapsed into the previous stop.
- Include All Moving Points: When selected, the report includes events for all moving points (GPS locations). That is, all points that have a speed above 0 MPH, and all points that have zero speed but for which the immediately previous point had a speed greater than 0 MPH (indicating slowing to a stop between the two points).
The columns of a Fuel Card Match Summary report by vehicle or driver are as follows:
- Driver: The name of the driver associated with the fuel purchase.
- Total Un-Matched Purchases: The number of fuel purchases in which the vehicle was not recorded as being half a mile or less from the fueling station location at some point within a sixty minute window around the timestamp of the purchase.
- Total Matched Purchases: The number of fuel purchases in which the vehicle was recorded as being half a mile or less from the fueling station location within sixty minutes of the timestamp of the purchase.
- Total Purchases: The total number of purchases made (the summed value of all matched and un-matched purchases).
- Match %: The percentage of fuel purchases in which a match exists between the purchase time and location, and the location of the vehicle (both being within half a mile of one another, and the timestamp of the vehicle point being within 60 minutes of the purchase timestamp). Any value below 100% indicates the existence of un-matched purchases, and should be investigated further.
