At MechTronic we are delighted to hear that Kettlewell Fuels have been announced as Fuel Oil News Tanker of the Year 2021! 

Fuel Oil News chose Kettlewell Fuels as their Tanker of the Year 2021 for their innovation, design and drive towards greener fuel deliveries. You can read the full article here – Congratulations to Janet, Trevor and the team at Kettlewell Fuels on the Award!

As a longstanding customer of MechTronic’s, Kettlewell Fuels uses our electronic metering system, OptiMate across its fleet. The range of automatic processes available is reducing delivery times and preventing fuel contaminations as a result.  

“As we prepare for the new fuels,” stated Janet. “We know that the OptiMate system can accommodate all fuel types. OptiMate supports and automatically performs a line change during the fuel delivery process. It removes the need for the driver to calculate a line change manually, which is particularly beneficial when carrying mixed fuel loads. Drivers can continue with their deliveries safe in the knowledge that they are supplying clean fuel to customers.”  

Kettlewell Fuels also uses our ProControl 3 remote, which ensures that drivers can remain at the point of delivery throughout the entire process. They can remotely turn the cab engine off and although minimal, wider environmental impacts can also be achieved.  

Janet concludes: “As an independent business, we pride ourselves on reliability and supporting our domestic, agricultural and commercial customers across our region. It is essential that the equipment we purchase is reliable and efficient – we feel that adding this build to our fleet provides this.”
