During a fuel shortage, the White County, Indiana, Highway Department decided to implement a fuel tracking system to manage fuel usage across all its vehicles. A fuel controller and monitor were purchased for $14,000. The monitoring system provides data in real time on usage of every gallon, ensuring fuel optimization. Monitoring fuel usage allows the county to allocate and save fuel for vehicle use across all of its projects in the community.

The project received a 2022 Build a Better Mousetrap SMART Transformation Award from the National LTAP Association.
