By writing your PIN on your fuel card, the original fuel card letter or even choosing an obvious PIN like the registration of the vehicle is a sure way to end up being the victim of fuel card fraud. In-fact to keep your fuel card safe you should never store the card and PIN together. Possibly even going as far to change the PIN of a card when a driver stops working for a company. Keep the PIN somewhere safe and secure.
To make it easier to track, try and provide each driver with their own fuel card so that PIN numbers are not shared around. Sharing the cards can increase the risk of fraud and can make misuse harder to track
