Refueling Rental Cars in Paris
Refueling station for rental car location near the Charles de Gaulle Airport.
A car rental company needed a solution to optimize their fueling process for the rental cars. The staff of the rental company were required to fill up returned rental cars at local gas stations. Since they were located so close to the airport, the gas stations were very busy resulting in staff downtime. In addition, keeping track of receipts from vehicle fuel-ups from multiple gas stations became a hassle.
A 1,320 US gallon double walled Western Global storage tank provided the ideal solution. The bulk size and double-walled design allowed for safe fueling at the car rental company that met local regulations. To support the customer’s need of receipts and accuracy, Western Global fitted the storage tank with a weights and measures approved metering system that included a ticket printer.
The rental car company has saved a significant amount of time and money by having staff fill vehicles onsite. The company has also benefited from significant fuel cost savings from this new refueling method, as they can now purchase their fuel in bulk.
