Introducing Fuel/talk

Fuel Talk

Fuel/talk is our new bi-weekly ‘chat show’ hosted by James Davis, Customer Insight and Strategy Director, that aims to share valuable context for automotive professionals on the market, our products, news and stories, and areas of expertise.

Fuel/talk is available to watch on YouTube every fortnight and for those on the go, a podcast version will be launching soon on all major platforms.

You can watch both episodes released so far below:

Episode 1: Paul Humphreys talks eVA
With measures in place to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, dealers have looked to remote ways of working to sell vehicles and keep their businesses running. James chats with Paul Humphreys about the e-commerce journey the industry is currently on and how eVA Valuations & Appraisals provides dealers with the tools they need to provide seamless online vehicle transactions.


Episode 2: Market chat with Andy Conde
With a full auction programme now back in operation, albeit online only, James chats with Andy Conde to hear how his team, buyers and vendors have adapted, how the lockdown has influenced the market and what vendors and buyers should be thinking about as we head into the final quarter of the year.

Episode 3: Funding chat with Liam Quegan
Consumer demand for used vehicles has been strong since dealerships began to reopen in early June, meaning dealers have been busy buying stock to replenish their forecourts. With cashflow under extreme scrutiny and many lenders adopting a more cautious than usual approach, James chats with Liam Quegan, MD of Manheim Auction Services and NextGear Capital about his observations of how dealers and the market have fared since reopening, his thoughts for the closing quarter of the year and his advice for dealers reviewing their funding options.
