ARI® Publishes White Paper on Fuel Cost Reduction

MT. LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - Automotive Resources International (ARI), a leading global fleet solutions provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, announced its publication of a white paper entitled "Fuel Reduction Strategies: Controlling the Controllable."

Available on the ARI web site, www.arifleet.com, this white paper features a variety of ways to reduce fuel cost per gallon. It outlines how to ensure the correct fuel is purchased, fuel hedging, buying fuel in bulk, using fuel rebates, and exploring alternative fuel options.

The white paper also gives advice on how to reduce overall fuel consumption. It addresses choosing the right vehicle to reduce fuel use, incorporating hybrid and other fuel saving technologies, maintaining vehicles properly, and encouraging better fuel-saving habits with drivers.

"Given the volatility of fuel costs, a fleet's fuel expense can easily become its single highest expense," says Anthony Foursha, ARI manager of strategic consulting. "This white paper suggests tools beyond just fuel budgeting, purchase and use to better manage fleet activities that impact fuel economy such as vehicle acquisition, operation and maintenance and driver training, behavior and communication."

Companies interested in obtaining a copy of the white paper can contact their ARI representative or call ARI at 1-800-477-4715.
