HMRC consultation calls flat rate mileage and fuel expenses into questionThe Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

Business travel data specialist TMC is urging companies to respond to a new HMRC consultation document that questions whether flat rate expenses such as Approved Mileage Allowance Payments (AMAPs) are still appropriate. TMC, which captures and processes mileage and fuel expense data from over 100,000 UK and European drivers, says fleets should take this important opportunity to make their voice heard. HMRC’s call for evidence about taxati

Fuel Savings. The devil is in the detail.The Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

Successful fuel management can be summed up in two well-known phrases. “The truth is out there” and “The devil is in the detail”. The first rule of fuel management is ‘what you don’t know definitely will hurt you’. Bad things come from incomplete management information. Insufficient information leads to excessive fuel costs and needless administrative hassle. It’s not enough just to record your vehicles’ annual mileages. N

TMC data shows some fleet drivers get over 40mpg more than others from identical company cars.The Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

New ‘real world driving’ data reveals that some fleet drivers are getting 40 fewer miles per gallon (MPG) than colleagues who drive identical models. Super-frugal fleet diesels are extremely sensitive to their users’ driving style says TMC, which carried out the analysis.

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. EA tests real-world emissions by fitting measuring devices to vehicles and driving them long distances on public roads. They report a 29% gap between actual vs. advertised MPGs and CO2 emissions; virtually the same as the 28% gap shown up in

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. Our client Danwood Group cut its fuel bill by 13.8% in just 12 weeks, last year, by implementing TMC’s complete fuel and mileage solution. It goes to show that, although unpredictable movements in pump prices movements are inescapable, fleets can minimise their impact o

Gap between official fuel economy and cars’ actual performance is wider than everThe Miles Consultancy NewsThe Miles Consultancy News

Figures released today by mobility data expert TMC show that new cars’ real-world fuel economy fell further behind advertised performance, last year. TMC crunched mileage and fuel data from 21,200 fleet cars to quantify the impact of the widening gap.
