James City County to Update Fuel Management Systems

September 07, 2011

WILLIAMSBURG, VA - James City County will install six Gasboy Islander PLUS fleet management systems at its refueling sites for fire trucks, police vehicles, heavy equipment, and mowers. The five existing sites are upgrading from Gasboy Series 1000 systems to the new Islander PLUS. Administrators have also chosen the Islander PLUS system, along with two Gasboy fuel dispensers, for one newly constructed refueling site, according to a release from the company.

"This has been a simple transition to a more modern and secure system that is monitored," said William (Buddy) Stewart, fleet and equipment administrator for James City County. "The new technology helps us better manage our fuel, vehicles, and equipment."

The Islander PLUS cardlock system limits access to fuel to authorized drivers and vehicles and is compatible with multiple access technologies, including contactless systems. It is a Web-based site fuel controller and an island fleet card reader designed for the unique requirements of unattended fueling. The Islander PLUS interfaces with fleet management software and other systems, which allows for active maintenance management based on vehicle data, according to the release.
