Idle management technology deployed in hydro, water, gas, and public works vehicles
Utility Fleet Idling
Reduce Costs & Improve Operator Safety
With the GRIP Idle Management System installed, utility vehicles such as hydro, water, and gas trucks, see an average reduction in idling of 30-70%. This controlled reduction in idling contributes to significant savings in fuel consumption and operational costs, harmful emissions, and extends vehicle life.

Analyzing the annual idling habits, costs, and emissions in utility fleets
On average, utility vehicles idle for 60% of their daily shift
In a 50-hour work week, this equates to 1,752 gal. (annually) of fuel consumed at idle
These 1,752 gallons of wasted fuel translates to $4,362 in wasted fuel costs every year
Idling 60% of the time, this equates to 51,516 miles of unnecessary engine wear
These 51,516 miles of engine wear equate to $4,894 in associated maintenance costs
Idling 60% of the time, utility fleets produce 39,245 lbs. of CO2 emissions
*The calculations and figures presented in this fleet review are budgetary based on industry standards and are subject to
fluctuation, change, and actual fleet numbers. Fuel costs used are based on annual averages for the 2018 calendar year for diesel and gasoline. Values used for fuel consumption are based on industry averages and are subject to vary from vehicle to vehicle. The 32.93 mi. value used for engine wear per hour of idling is based on collected industry data . The industry-assumed idling percentage is based on data gathered from GRIP Idle Management Inc. customers as well as retrievable online data. Maintenance cost is based on vehicle classification and fuel type, including light duty gasoline, light duty diesel, heavy duty gasoline, heavy duty diesel, and combined averages when gasoline vs diesel fleet makeup is not provided.
