The new scoring system assesses driver fuel efficiency in engine control, speeding and idling. It also provides a blended “True Fuel Score” that presents a composite rating of those elements.
The scores are normalized based on actual operating conditions so that drivers are scored only on the factors that they can control, according to Vnomics.
“The blended True Fuel Score provides a more accurate and comprehensive assessment of real-world driver fuel efficiency,” Bob Magnant, vice president of product management and strategy, said in the Jan. 25 announcement. “We like to look at it as the ‘GPA’ of fuel efficiency.”
