Fueling Success

the fuelmaster system's quality, durability and
capabilities make it a leader in its field.
FuelMaster leads the market in
fuel management automation for one
simple reason. "Day in and day out,
from the deserts of Mojave to fuel
sites in Alaska, our stuff just works,"
says Dan Phillips, vice president of
sales and marketing for Syntech Systems, the company behind the FuelMaster brand.
The reliability of the FuelMaster
system has helped it gain more than
7,000 customers who manage more
than 14,000 fueling sites worldwide.
These customers track more than 3
million users and collect data from
over 350,000 automotive information
modules. Users of the system include
military, commercial and municipal
fleets as well as other governmental
entities such as state departments of
transportation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection fleet.
"We enjoy the position of being a
premium brand with premium technology," Phillips says. "The equity behind the FuelMaster name is second
to none."

Product Evolution
During the late 1970s, Syntech first
engineered the automated fuel accounting system used by the U.S. Air
Force at facilities across the continental United States. Almost 10 years
later, the Air Force requested a fully
functioning automated fuel management system for both fixed fuel sites
and mobile fueling carriers to have
automated equipment, reliable communication methods and comprehensive software with flexible reporting
capabilities. The goal of the Air Force
was to efficiently and accurately manage global fuel assets. That request
drove the evolution of FuelMaster in
1985 and this technology was successfully deployed to 220 Air Force Bases
around the world.
The fuel management unit (FMU)
eventually became a staple product
for all military branches. With this
success, in the 1990s Syntech began
to offer the product line into commercial applications. For organizations that buy their own fuel, intended for use in their equipment and

vehicles, providing the ability to securely manage these assets was a new
tool in the arsenal of labor efficiency
and asset protection.
"Historically, non-consumer fueling sites were unmanned with open
fuel pumps that were easily accessible. Therefore, a significant percentage of fuel simply ended up in unauthorized vehicles, or the wrong fuel
was dispensed into vehicles causing
equipment issues," Phillips says.
Frank Sessa of New England Motor Freight recently installed the FuelMaster platform. "In our industry,
fuel and time are among our greatest
assets," he says. "Before utilizing the
FuelMaster system, we managed our
fuel manually across 28 dispatch terminals. We are now automated and
have the ability to manage our fuel
consumption from multiple locations, in real time, while eliminating
human error."
The system has developed over the
years to provide additional security
and additional data to multiple system users. The patented Automotive
