Retailers are saving several thousands of pounds for every million litres of fuel sold by installing Gilbarco Veeder-Root pumps with Eco-Meter and automatic temperature compensation (ATC) technology, according to the findings of a recent study by the company.
In the study with a dealer customer, existing pumps with piston-based meters were closely monitored over an extended period against newer Gilbarco Veeder-Root dispensers with a combination of Eco-Meter and ATC. Across a number of sites, the combined annual savings delivered by the technology were between £6,000 and £7,000 per million litres sold.
Matt Clayton, UK sales director for Gilbarco Veeder-Root, said: "A combination of a low-drift meter such as Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Eco-Meter and automatic temperature compensation within the dispenser can make a truly radical difference to the retailer’s profitability. While each retailer’s situation will be different, we see benefits to almost all retailers by installing new dispensers with these technologies. To eliminate the upfront cost of installing new fuel dispensers, we offer leases and extended payment programmes tailored to each customer allowing the savings gained to cover the monthly cost."
