VEMA has made a change to its Light Division Preventative Maintenance Program for all vehicles that are equipped with diesel engines.

In order to be more aligned with the manufacturer’s schedule, we have increased the PM1 service from 6,000 kms to 12,000 kms. The PM1 service interval will remain at 8 months.

The PM1 is the only maintenance that has been changed on this program.

We are in the process of reviewing our Light Division Preventative Maintenance Program for gas engines, and will keep you updated with these changes.

2016-2017 VEMA Fuel Discount Rating

One of the many services VEMA offers is the use of the VEMA Fuel Card. This fuel/credit card does more than make purchasing fuel easy, it also gives our customers access to negotiated discounts from fuel vendors across Manitoba. Where your drivers purchase fuel affects how much of a discount is realized.

The following is a ranking of fuel vendors by discount offered for the 2016 and 2017 calendar years. Your drivers are encouraged to use the top-ranked fuel vendors whenever possible to minimize fuel costs to your organization.

The reduced fuel prices will not be seen at the pumps as we receive the discount when the fuel vendor bills us for your vehicles’ fuel charges. The discounted amount is the amount that appears on your monthly fuel billing.

Please remind drivers that personal rewards received (eg. Cash Rebates, Air Miles, Petro Points, etc.) at these vendors are not permitted.

(1 is best, 6 is lowest)

E85 Fuel Has Been Discontinued

Late last fall Husky Energy discontinued supplying E85 fuel in Manitoba as well as other
provinces in western Canada due to new Renewable Fuel Regulations under the Canadian
Environmental Protection Act (CEPA). As a result, VEMA is no longer able to provide E85 fuel at our 1550 Dublin Avenue site in Winnipeg.

VEMA will continue to seek out sources of E85 fuel. However, as a convenience for you, E10 fuel will be available at the 1550 Dublin Avenue site later this month. Your VEMA fuel card can be used at this location.

We apologize for this inconvenience. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sean
Savage at (204) 781-7092 or by email at
