Weekly Idle Cost - US Gallons Trend Report

Provided byGeotab Inc.


This weekly report displays the entire fleet’s idling costs for each day, making it easy for fleet managers to identify the total amount idling is costing their company.

The report calculates the cost based on the industry rule that states: on average, for every hour of idling, a vehicle will burn 1 gallon of fuel.

The data is displayed with a graph, which can be used to identify weekly trends. The trend line indicates whether or not your fleet is reducing their weekly idle total.
