Generators and Fuel Savings – The United States Government (FEMA) spends thousands if not millions of dollars a year on the initial fueling of vehicles and generators prior to a disaster. For 1 applicant I personally granted $12,000 in fuel costs.
What the FEMA fleet system does that can save all of us money. Keep emergency responders vehicles and generators full every day. This is beneficial for several reasons:
1. It prevents water and condensation from building up in the fuel tank which can cause engine failure or increased maintenance costs.
2. It saves time when everyone is rushing to fuel up.
3. It saves costs as fuel begins to run out; the price goes up, if not in the fuel itself, but in travel and time to locate it.
