HBS Fuels now deliver with OptiMate

HBS Fuels is an independent family-owned business that has been established for over 30 years, providing a local, personalised service to homes and businesses across Andover and the surrounding villages. Over the years, HBS Fuels has grown and expanded its delivery areas to supply distributors, whilst always delivering a reliable and friendly service.

In February 2023, HBS Fuels took delivery of their first OptiMate electronic metering system and they have been delighted with the automatic functions that OptiMate offers.

Enhanced operator experience for smooth operations

Brad Wilkie, Managing Director at MechTronic said: “In 2016, OptiMate was introduced as a cutting-edge solution to address the critical issue of fuel contamination. With its full anti-cross contamination capabilities and automatic processes, OptiMate ensures that every delivery is clean and reliable.

“Built with the operator in mind, OptiMate’s user-friendly interface and intuitive controls make it easy to operate, even for those who are new to electronic metering systems. This enhanced operator experience minimises errors and ensures that deliveries are carried out smoothly and efficiently.”

OptiMate supports busy delivery demands

Steve Walker, Operations Manager at HBS Fuels said: “Since February we have found that OptiMate takes the hassle out of line changes with its automatic line change feature. Drivers no longer need to return to the tanker to perform a line change manually. Instead, they can set a standard delivery that includes an automatic line change at the end.”

Steve continued: “OptiMate’s automatic functions not only prevent fuel contamination but also significantly enhance efficiency and safety throughout the delivery process. By eliminating manual tasks and streamlining operations, OptiMate has enabled drivers to focus on what matters most, delivering fuel reliably and on time.”
