Business mileage returning to pre-covid levels, and a dramatic rise in alternative fuel usage.
Data from Allstar Business Solutions, incorporating over 50,000 customers, with more than one million vehicles in the UK, gives a unique view of the last year.
“We got to see the real-time effects on fuel use that the pandemic and lockdown had on industry sectors ranging from construction through to the arts and develop a picture of what changes have occurred across the industries we work with,” says Paul Holland, MD for UK Fuel at FLEETCOR “The picture our data paints is one of recovery and significant changes across all industry sectors, with the adoption of other and alternative fuels ramping up considerably.
“We have seen a dramatic rise in the use of other and alternative fuels that happened irrespective of the pandemic, with use of these fuels almost doubling from February of 2020 to February of 2021.”
