    We are looking at getting a fuel card account for a company that we can access in the US as well (no Co-ops down there).

    Do any veterans have suggestions on which companies to look for?

    I get a rental car because we go to Ft Lauderdale first, then drive up to wdw and return rental after check in. So I get a Hess card for gas. Hess has a few stations in wdw so it's convenient to fill tank before returning car.
    Hess has stations near DTD, near BWI, and in Disneys Car Care Centre.

    I started buying gas cards in the US because I find it very fustrating filling up, and having to go into the station and guess how much gas the rental will need, not being able to pay at the pump without a US zip code, :sad2:

    You can also use the numbers in your postal code followed by two zero's. So if your postal code is Z6C 1Q4 (jsut random letters and numbers and not intended to be a real one) you would put in 61400 as your zip code. It apparently works most of the time.

    I do that too. However in this case that may not always work as that is the zip code for Beverly hills.

    Don't they give back change?

    Or if you did not guess enough gas you could go back in and buy more.

    No, they refund your Visa card, or debit card if you over pay. Either way it's a pain, having you go into the station twice. The US gas card works way better. Just pay at the pump.

    I've tried that, putting in other US postal codes, including local Florida ones. Nothing works, as it doesn't match your Visa or debit card.
