The iLevel tank monitoring app saves farmers money and improves farm efficiency:

  • Keeps farmers informed so that they do not run-out of fuel or liquid fertilizer
  • Helps them manage their stocks and buy efficiently
Running out of fuel during harvest is a typical issue for farmers and with today’s combines using 1,000 litres per day and high horsepower tractors consuming up to 1,200 litres a day, monitoring and managing fuel stocks is key to an efficient farming operation.
This was a key factor in Edd Banks, Thomas Banks & Partners, Cambridgeshire deciding to install iLevel at his farm. The cost of running out is £500 which makes iLevel repay itself 200% within the first harvest.
  • Organising an emergency, last minute fuel order would add an extra £0.05 per litre more than a standard scheduled delivery
  • For a typical 10,000 litre delivery of red diesel this would be an extra £500 (source: BoilerJouice fuel quote 24 November 2014).

In addition to the extra cost of an emergency fuel delivery, running out of fuel will mean not being able to combine for on average 5 hours whilst an emergency fuel delivery is organised and a lot more hassle when farmers are already working long days and nights to bring in the harvest. The iLevel tank monitoring app saves farmers money and improves farm efficiency.

 

Carl Driver is a Farm Contractor in Suffolk who is using iLevel to match fuel consumption with stock.

  • Carl has reduced his fuel stock from 17,000 litres to 10,000 litres - 40% stock reduction which frees-up £5,000 in terms of cash-flow
  • Can now purchase the fuel he needs at the best price and ensures that he is not over stocked at the end of the season
  • Will not be storing large quantities of fuel over the winter as it will degrade during the winter.
