SmartFuel is Tokheim’s advanced vehicle identification solution (VIS). It is an automated refuelling system that incorporates fuel payment based on vehicle identification with two options for both the retail and fleet environments. It has been designed for oil
companies, fleets, and petrol station owners to help overcome many of the limitations inherent in traditional fuel card technology. It reduces fraud, improves customer loyalty and helps boost profits considerably.
The vehicle tag is a contactless microprocessor that is installed in the vehicle. It identifies the vehicle to the POS, providing vehicle identification, fuel type, plus 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. It’s a robust system that is easy to install and it does not require any adaptations to the nozzle. Only when the correct fuel nozzle is inserted in the fuel tank inlet will the authorisation be approved and fuel dispensed into the vehicle.
Tokheim’s hand-held driver tag is a “microprocessor-based Smart Card” that the fleet driver can present at the pump for driver identification. It can only be used in conjunction with the vehicle tag. The Driver Tag does not contain any method of payment and is for driver identification only; offering a greater level of security.
