Hard on the heels of our report on ever less-accurate official MPG data, figures published  this week by Emissions Analytics (EA), a vehicle emissions measurement company, tally almost exactly with TMC's.

Pump prices hit a two-year high in January, according to the RAC. Does it mean that fleets are once again at the mercy of the international oil markets?  Not necessarily.

After a two-year respite, the recent jump in fuel prices is an unwelcome reminder that the cost of fuelling fleets can go up as well as down. What’s more, fuel prices look set to keep on rising into 2017, on the back of Brexit jitters and expectations that constrained oil production will lift the price of crude oil.
