Texas School District Saves Taxpayers' Money. Northside ISD, the Largest School District in San Antonio, Finds Solution to Managing Fuel Costs.

While pumping over 2 million gallons a year can create a huge headache in controlling cost and inventory, NISD found the solution to managing fuel costs while saving taxpayer dollars. They found a Central Texas company, Texas Fleet Fuel, Ltd., to take over their fueling needs.

    AUSTIN, TX, June 24, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Prior to Texas Fleet Fuel, we had too many unknowns concerning our fuel usage," says Rafael Salazar, Transportation Director. "We didn't know if we had theft or how much fuel each dept was using. We had card readers that had all kinds of problems and were easy to over-ride by employees. Our system took a lot of manpower to maintain and generated mountains of paper reports that were difficult to understand."

"I knew that Texas Fleet Fuel is what we needed as they have a turn-key operation providing consignment fuel, consistent pricing and easy to read reporting. They installed equipment at each of our 9 locations to control all our fuel, even propane. In order to get fuel, the attendants must key in the bus #, their employee number and the odometer reading so we can receive a mpg reading each time the bus is fueled. This way, we are able to track usage both by vehicle and employee, preventing problems before they get started."

"The best part is that Texas Fleet Fuel owns the inventory, not us. We only pay for fuel that is used and their price was less than what we were paying before. Now we know exactly who is buying fuel and there is no guesswork," continues Salazar. "We saved time and money and now everyone is happy since all departments can account for their fuel. Texas Fleet Fuel made the transition easy for us and already after only 9 months, we're seeing the savings."

Would he recommend Texas Fleet Fuel to other school districts? "Definitely yes," says Salazar.

Texas Fleet Fuel, Ltd. provides fuel and fuel management programs to commercial and government fleets throughout the state, enabling fleet customers to save 15% or more on overall fuel expenses. Tracking vehicle, driver and transaction information both on and off site, the Texas Fleet Fuel Card provides fleet managers the necessary tools to cut waste and restrict unauthorized purchases. Texas Fleet Fuel Cards are accepted nationwide at over 48,000 Fuelman fuel and maintenance locations, providing quality control and convenience to the fleet operator. Customers include small, medium and large commercial businesses along with government and school entities.
