Fuel Key/Credit Card
Drivers of University vehicles on the Twin Cities campus must fill up at the University's own fuel pumps whenever possible.
All University vehicles are issued a gas key for use at the Twin Cities campus pumps. Fueling directions are located near the pumps. The gas key can also be used for the automatic car wash at the PTS Fleet Building.

For vehicles not located on the TC campus or that travel away from campus, a credit card to purchase self-service non-premium fuels is issued. The card is honored at 180,000 stations across the U.S. A brochure listing most of the stations accompanies your card.
In the event of a breakdown outside the service area of PTS Fleet, the fuel credit card can be used for emergency repairs. A brochure with an 800 customer service number is provided with your credit card.

Fuel at University pumps is less than fuel at service stations because the University is exempt from the federal excise tax.
