Fuel Log Template

While you can't control the costs of purchasing fuel, you can reduce the impact of fuel costs on your fleet by monitoring for high-consumption vehicles and spotting outliers – and possible fuel theft – within your fleet. Our customizable fuel log spreadsheet provides a simple solution to start logging and tracking fuel usage across your fleet.

How do I keep track of fuel expenses?

There are a variety of ways to track and capture your fuel data, including paper forms, receipt trails, spreadsheets and software. A fuel log spreadsheet or fuel management software is the easiest way for people to track their fuel usage, as they allow you to quickly surface historical data and compare your usage across various vehicles in your fleet to identify trends and cost savings opportunities.

How do I calculate fuel usage?

The easiest way to calculate fuel usage for a single vehicle is to divide the distance traveled by the gallons of fuel needed to fill up your vehicle. If you'd like to look into further fuel usage trends, you can then divide the cost of fueling up by the number of miles driven to calculate your cost per mile (CPM) and then compare the cost per mile driven against other vehicles in your fleet.
