Fuel management encompasses many parts, from fuel purchasing to ensuring that the energy produced by the burning of the fuel is done in a way that maximises efficiency and minimises environmental impact.

See Fuel Adjustment Form — Specimen Agreement and Calculations (in Resources) for a sample agreement and method of calculation.
