Fleet FAQ? Fuel Management

Q. Do you see the markets for alternative-fuel and electric vehicles expanding?

A. Alternative-fuel and electric vehicles have been the talk for a few years now. As technology continues to advance, we’re seeing more trusted auto brands producing fuel alternative options. Audi, Porsche, Cummins and even Harley Davidson have all entered the alternative fuel market. Some OEMs and consumers are still hesitant to put money behind these alternatives.


Instead, they’re watching and waiting to see how the technology advances. Whether or not you’re jumping on the alternative fuel bandwagon, one thing is for sure: Alternative fuel options will become mainstream in due time, regardless of fluctuating gas prices.


So, yes, we do see these markets expanding, and we’re already developing and investing in technology to support the transactions our customers need now and in the future, regardless of the type. For example, we already have the technology in place to support alternative fuel transactions in the truck stop market.
