Radio Signals Can Help Ease Waste at Fuel Pumps

May 02, 2002

SmartFuel, introduced by SCI International of Clearwater, is a new wireless fuel management system designed to help fleet managers operating centrally-fueled fleets prevent mistakes, waste, and fraud at company fuel pumps.SmartFuel employs tiny radio signal transmitters fastened to vehicle gas tanks and fuel pumps to ensure that fuel will flow only when the correct fuel nozzle is inserted into the correct tank by the correct driver. The SmartFuel system, which is controlled via a wireless radio frequency modem connected to the fleet manager’s office computer, can be installed on both the latest electronic and older-style mechanical fuel pumps. The SmartFuel wireless management system evolved from technology developed by the Israeli Air Force to control fuel flow during in-flight refueling of aircraft.
