Fuel Oils is a well-respected independent fuel distributor that has been providing its services to the South of the UK for over 50 years.
In August 2022, Fuel Oils took delivery of their first, two OptiMate’s. Fuel Oils prides itself on its excellent customer service and the adoption of the OptiMate electronic metering system has brought significant improvements to its fuel delivery operations.
Preventing fuel contamination
Brad Wilkie, Managing Director at MechTronic said: “We launched OptiMate in 2016, and since then it has made a significant impact within the industry with its full anti-cross contamination measures. Features such as the automatic line and compartment change ensures that the fuel remains uncontaminated, operators can confidently switch between different products without worrying about cross-contamination issues and have complete peace of mind.”
Streamlined processes for efficient deliveries
Mike York, Transport Manager at Fuel Oils said: “The automatic line and compartment change functions have delivered considerable benefits to our business. Previously, drivers had to return to the tanker to manually initiate these processes either during or at the end of a delivery. With OptiMate the processes are automated. This not only saves time but also ensures safer deliveries as the driver remains at the point of delivery, whilst the automatic processes minimise the chance of contamination during compartment changes.”
