KujoI’m Kujo. My name might seem ferocious, but I’m very playful and love coming to work everyday. I’m only eight weeks old, but everyone says I’m gonna be a big guy.

    I’m a full-blooded Rotty, and on a normal workday I’m either riding in the truck with my dad from Williams Wrecker Service in Matthews, N.C., or just laying around the office.

    I’m even an official employee with my own wrecker vest.

    Fuel Programs — What’s in it for You?

    “Since fuel costs are a key line item in every fleet owner’s budget, a number of vendors offer fuel-buying programs that are specifically targeted to businesses such as towing companies. Fleet fuel programs enable towers to buy gas and diesel at lower costs, usually via a commercial credit card. Drivers can roll up to the pump, swipe the card, punch in an identification number and fill up. Meanwhile, fleet owners can track expenditures as well as driver and vehicle performance.”

    For more about the benefits of fuel programs see the August Tow Times feature article “Fuel Programs: Good for the Fleet, Good for the Pocketbook” by Allan T. Duffin.
