A new propane fuel management dispenser system from Alliance AutoGas is now available to fleet customers.

Features of the new T3MR Fleet Fuel Management System include a durable card reader system, data management, real-time communications and an ultra-low-emission fueling nozzle. Company officials said that the system will provide fleet managers with the ability to better monitor and control fuel inventories in real time.

The T3MR Fleet Fuel Management System is based on industry platforms Comdata, Superior Energy Systems and global ATM manufacturer Triton Systems. According to Alliance AutoGas, the unit offers cellular-based communications, a simple user interface in a clean design dispenser cabinet with reliable hardware, remotely upgradable software, a ticket printer and customizable reporting for fleets of all sizes.

The T3MR communications platform connects the dispensers via cellular wireless Internet with multi-level user security and 24/7 monitoring. Company officials said that minimal additional infrastructure requirements will be needed at the fueling site, providing fleet managers comprehensive, user-friendly reporting and a highly available data and processing function utilizing a widely used and accepted payment platform.

“Previously, the propane autogas fueling experience for fleets has been less than optimal, as no centralized fueling authorization platform has been available,” Alliance AutoGas President Stuart Weidie said. “The fleets associated with Alliance AutoGas will now have the option of not only having access to real-time management data, but also the security that vehicle operators will be using the safest autogas nozzle in the world — the Staubli, which emits only 0.4 cc’s of fuel when disconnecting.”
