Usage of mobile phone for refuelling and controlling fuel consumption


Regional gas station network, which operates in the Siberian Federal District, Russia.


The regional gas station network operating in the Siberian Federal District, was faced with a task of developing a system for corporate customers. The current system is based on the use of smart cards. The main disadvantages of this system:

➤ Expenses related to the issue of cards
➤ The need to install special card readers at gas stations and additional costs for their maintenance
➤ Drivers can’t check remaining balance on the card, it can be done only at the gas station with the reader
➤ No online statistics on fuel consumption both on the filling station company and on the side of corporate clients
➤ No functionality to change the operational limits of fuel allocated for specific vehicles


The solution developed by Eyeline allowed usage of mobile phones instead of smart cards for refuelling and controlling fuel consumption. The technological basis of the new system was USSD dialogue, which provided an opportunity for interactive communication of drivers with the system from any phone model and without the use of mobile data.

In short time, with the help of Eyeline Mobilizer and Eyeline SDP platforms, Eyeline implemented the solution, which allows:

➤ Replace the use of smart cards for drivers’ mobile phones, which completely eliminates the cost of card issuance and maintenance of card reader infrastructure
➤ Conduct interactive communications between driver and the system by using a cell phone, which allows a quick check of fuel residual limit allocated to the vehicle and perform actions for refueling
➤ Refuel the vehicle without leaving the cab. Fuel type and volume can be set by the driver with the help of USSD menu on his mobile phone
➤ Quickly get real-time information on fuel consumption and perform actions to limit consumption

The system has been field-tested and showed its high efficiency. Currently, there is a preparation for its widespread adoption.
