4.0 Dispensing Fuel
Click Dispense from the Main Menu to Dispense Fuel.
4.1 Dispense Options
We have built Fuellox to satisfy a range of customer needs. For this reason it is possible to collect various parameters each time fuel is dispensed. Your organisation will have established a policy to ensure they collect the data they need to administer the Fuellox System.
4.2 Dispense Parameters
The Following Parameters can be collected with each fuel transaction. Parameters can be
CLIENTYour Customers are reffered to as
SITESEach Client has one or more Sites. A Site is the place they actually do the work.
PROJECTSAre not exclusive to a Client or Site, but to the entire Company that runs the Fuellox. Project may operate across a range of Clients/Sites
Fuellox Paramaters can be configured in four ways:
- No Paramaters at all
In some cases Parameters are not collected, and you will not be required to select anything.
4.3 Selecting Parameters
Simply tap the screen for the parameter you wish to select (ie
Project) and a list will be shown. Tap an option in that list to select it and return to the dispense menu.
The methods to select either
PROJECT is the same.
Notes on Equipment
In some cases Fuellox is configured such that the Client owns the Equipment. Rather than the Fuellox owner having their own fleet it allows each of your customers to have a fleet independant of the other equipment.
In this case, you may need to select your Client prior to revealing the Equipment List.
If you are unsure or confused, touch base with our Support Desk and we'll chat it over with you.
4.4 Equipment Selection

Tap the Equipment section, and a list of Equipment will be shown. There may be a search bar (depending on your system) that enables you to quickly find any machine with a search string. Note the search string applies to multiple fields:
- Equipment Type
If the Equipment only has one compartment registered, the compartment will be automatically selected for you.
Where there is more than one compartment (ie more than 1 diesel tank OR more than one fluid tank) you will need to select that compartment too.
Once you have selected the equipment, you may be required to enter the ODO. The required Unit of Measure (UOM) will be shown. Click the ODO Section to enable a key pad, and simply enter the Odometer Reading.

Although a rare occurence, should there be multiuple Fuellox units in range, multiple List options will be shown. Be mindful to connect to the correct Fuellox system in these cases.
4.7.3 Scanning Issues

Refresh Scan Button to scan again. Scanning takes around 5 seconds and always clears the cache of devices.
If you repeatedly experience issues with scanning or your scan results, please raise a Support Ticket.

Notes on range
Fuellox expects you to be within approx 10m to use the system. You will notice the Range Slider fluctuate as you move around. If it goes red, you could lose the connection, which will stop the pump.
Should the connection break, get back close to the Fuellox unit and the connection should automagically re-establish itself and start the pump again. If not, you will need to start the dispense transaction again.
If you have selected all the Parameters correctly and Connected to the Fuellox unit, your Start button will be visible.
START to commence pumping. The app's User Interface will update to show the fluid dispensing.
You must stay within 5-10 meters for the Fuellox system to operate as expected.
