Fuel for thought

The Postal Service is reminding fleet managers and drivers to always buy the lowest-cost fuel from stations in the USPS Preferred Fueling Network.

The network, or PFN, consists of more than 10,000 retail fuel sites and 24 brands throughout the nation that provide the Postal Service with special pricing.

The organization regularly updates PFN agreements, so locations may change.

Managers and drivers should purchase regular nonpremium fuel for postal vehicles at PFN sites to help reduce overall fleet operating costs.

Drivers are also reminded to limit harsh starts and stops to help improve vehicle fuel efficiency.
