A pain in the tailpipe.

Thats the way i used to think until my wifes card got coppied at a outside pump with one of those card readers the CROOKS HIDE IN THE PUMP and all of a sudden there was 1200 dollars out of our account in about 3 hours and then a call from the bank...... Yes we got our money back but what a pain in the A**..... So my suggestion is think twice take the time and go inside its well worth it even though there are crooks everywhere

The last 2 times I took my card inside, they asked me how much and then swiped the card and handed it back to me. I asked them if they didn't have to hold the card and they said they were no longer allowed to hold the cards.

I hear you Mavrick but for me at least, I try to look carefully at any card reader I use to see if anything looks non standard but beyond that I'll risk dealing with the CC company's fraud department rather than have to make two trips through the line every time I buy fuel.

Easy way is to carry 2 or 3 cards and keep switching them till you get all you need.

That is very true but my AMEX card has a 4% rebate on gasoline and my Visa is only 1%.

Really, you're betting the CC co will agree to give you your money back rather than walk inside. I see a young man in the picture and I assume you're healthy enough to walk. If the card is used again in the same location, you will be hard pressed to convince anyone (least of which is the CC co) that you didn't use the card yourself. If you're in such a hurry to get going again, maybe you need to slow down a little and smell the roses. You don't pay extra to go inside so take the walk and get a little exercise.

OK Guys!

Let us just agree to disagree and not do a Jack Webb and make this a federal case!

Actually, CITGO is an American incorporated company based in Houston, Texas, which is owned by PVD Americas, an indirect subsidiary of Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. It is not DIRECTLY owned by the Venezuelan government.

Citgo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Currently, Chavez is trying to sell the CITGO operations. He says it is "bad business".

It's the gas station, go inside give card and they will let it run till the tank is dry. I always check my card charges. Shell for a while was double charging and given a credit on the same card invoice. If I don't want to go inside I use all the cards needed to fill up.

Its not the CC companies usually. I was in business for 30+ years and accepted CC's for as long as I can remember. The merchants usually set the limit. It is based on what exposure they are willing to take on a fraudulent card. I set mine at my restaurant at $50. I usually just go inside to pay vs. pay at the pump for the MH. I either give them the CC or cash and deal with it from there. Or while I get ready to pump send the DW inside to pay. Not that big of a deal. The exercise will do us all good.

Good Luck
Arnold

We don't have that choice here. Every drop of gas you buy in these parts comes from the Citgo fuel farm in Niceville, Florida. All of the local stations, regardless of brand, get their fuel there. They just drop in additive packages to make it "their fuel". But it all comes by fuel barge from the Citgo refinery in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
