-- May 25, 2012 - Warren, MI – While more than 1.1 million Michigan residents are expected to travel 50 miles or more during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, according to AAA Michigan – and paying an average of $3.75 per gallon – members of the Michigan Food and Beverage Association (MFBA) have saved a total of more than $100,000 with its Superfleet Fueling Program.
Under the program, Association members can apply for a Superfleet account and receive gasoline / vehicle service credit cards to cover each vehicle in their company’s fleet. The program, free of charge, offers members a four-to-five-
cents per gallon monthly rebate, and the card itself, which has built-in security and fraud protection features, is accepted at more than 7,000 locations nationwide, including Speedway and Marathon stations across Michigan. The card also qualifies members for a discount at participating Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations.
“This has been, by far, one of the most popular programs we have offered to our members over the past four years, and as gas prices continue to rise, we expect that business owners who are concerned about how to operate their company vehicle fleets at lower cost will take advantage of Superfleet Fueling,” said Jennifer Kluge, MFBA CEO and president. She noted that members participating in the program are realizing average fuel savings of $70 per month and $840 per year.
