Mazzola Can Help Keep Your Commercial Fleet on the Road

on-site fueling Spackenkill, NY If you operate a commercial fleet, fuel is more than just a line item in your budget. Sending drivers to gas stations for fill-ups is downtime. There’s also the price of retail—whether you use diesel or regular gasoline. Depending on the type of vehicles you’re operating and the size of your fleet, you could see some real benefits from on-site fleet fueling that can make your business run better—and improve your bottom line.

How do we know?

Just like you, we operate a fleet of trucks that we need to keep fueled and ready to serve our customers. When we say we understand how delivery of quality wholesale diesel fuel can be critical to the success of your business, we mean it. Our on-road and off-road fueling services are convenient and dependable for trucking, construction and farm equipment needs, helping you save time and money.

Here’s how fleet fueling works—and all the ways it can benefit your business.

What Is Fleet Fueling?

There are three basic options: off-site, on-site and bulk fueling.

Off-site fueling means you fuel your vehicles at our fueling station. While you are sending your drivers to a fueling station, it’s not the same as using a retail fuel location—a Shell or Mobil or even a discount gas station—because our fueling station is reserved for our clients, and you can enjoy a better price than retail. You also get better quality fuel than at the discounters. It’s a great option if you have a smaller fleet of mainly on-road vehicles.

On-site fueling means we bring a fueling truck to you and fill your vehicles at your location. That’s great for construction companies, where you might be operating at multiple jobs sites that change periodically. This option means your vehicles stay on the job site, and we fill them on your schedule.

Bulk fueling is when you have a mini fueling station on your site, and we make sure you have the fuel supply you need. That’s a solution for larger fleets, for example.

The Best Solution for your Fleet

Mazzola’s team will work with you to assess your needs and help you find the right solution for your business and your fleet. We’ll talk to you about your usage patterns and your annual fuel spending, among other considerations. Do your vehicles use different types of fuel—on- and off-road diesel, for example, or regular gasoline?

Generally, on-site fueling and bulk gas and diesel delivery services save the most time and money. Your crews save time because they don’t need to take time off from the job to fuel up. With on-site fueling, we take care of that before or after each shift, so your teams are ready to get to work.

You also save money because you aren’t using gas to drive from jobsites to fueling locations. The cost to send your vehicles just two or three miles out of the way to fuel up really add up! Onsite delivery removes those costs. Dispatch and rout planning are also more efficient: there are no detours or extra mileage to get fuel. (And, no lost receipts, or receipts with a few snacks or a coffee added on.)

Beyond Industrial Fleets

Many people think of fleet fueling only for industrial or construction companies. But our fleet fueling services are designed to work for all kinds of clients. School districts and municipalities also need diesel fuels and gasoline for school buses, snowplows, fire trucks, police cars, ambulances, trucks and equipment for road repairs, commercial mowers, and equipment for maintenance of parks and public spaces, transit buses, shuttle buses, paratransit buses and more.
