  • Why Is FuelTaxDistance So Different From FuelTaxGpsDistance in the Data Tab?

Applies To

  • IFTA Report
  • Odometer
  • Newly installed device

Answer

The odometer was not detected from the vehicle immediately after the device was installed and an odometer adjustment was applied to the vehicle when it was added to the database. Therefore, the FuelTaxDistance was calculated as the difference between this odometer adjustment and the first odometer reading that was reported by the vehicle several days after installation. It was not from the actual odometer readings from the trips during that time period.

The FuelTaxGPSDistance was determined by the total GPS distance of the trips taken during that period.
