The two main values need to calculate fuel usage are:

  • Distance
  • Total Fuel Used (Since telematics device install)

If Total Fuel Used (Since telematics device install) is unavailable, the system will attempt to obtain an approximate value using a combination of data from any of the following:

  • Calculated Fuel Used
  • Fuel Level (Volume)
  • Fuel tank capacity
  • Fuel transactions

Additional Notes

What is the source for the distance in fuel usage report?

If none of the above engine measurements are available, please contact Geotab Support to further investigate and troubleshoot. It may be necessary to submit an Engine Data Request.
