Tokheim SmartFuel™ is an advanced vehicle identification solution (VIS) and automated refuelling system that incorporates fuel payment based on vehicle identification and is suitable for both retail and fleet environments. It has been designed for oil
companies, fleet operations, and petrol station owners to help overcome many of the limitations inherent in traditional fuel card technology, and reduces fraud, improves customer loyalty and helps boost profits.
The vehicle tag is a contactless microprocessor that is installed in the vehicle. It allows the Tokheim Fuel POS to identify the vehicle, and retrieve fuel type and payment information. Odometer/mileage readings are transmitted automatically by the vehicle tag to the site controller at the time of refuelling.
The nozzle RF unit is a wireless device that slips over the nozzle and identifies the nozzle to the system. The robust system is easy to install and does not require any adaptations to the nozzle to be performed. Only when the correct fuel nozzle is inserted into the fuel tank inlet will the authorisation be approved and fuel dispensed into the vehicle.
Dover Fueling Solutions’ hand-held driver tag – or ‘microprocessor-based Smart Card’ – can be presented by the fuel fleet driver at the pump for driver identification and can only be used in conjunction with the vehicle tag for improved security. The driver tag does not contain way of completing payment method of payment and is for driver identification only.
