How do fuel cards work?
For an in-depth explanation on how fuel cards work, please check out our guide dedicated to the topic.
Fuel cards work as an alternative payment method for fuel. Each card can be allocated to a driver or a vehicle within a business (including sole traders) and is used at an appropriate fuel station based on the fuel network the card is compatible with. All the driver needs to do is pay for the fuel in the same way you would with a credit or debit card at the cashier. No receipts need to be kept by the driver. In addition to capturing the litres purchased, the card will also prompt for vehicle odometer and registration data, which will be included in your transactional data. The company will then be invoiced for all transactions on the card, in one efficient bill.
What can you buy with a fuel card?
Most branded fuel cards can only be used to purchase fuel, except for a few cards which can be used to pay for toll roads. AdBlue and gas oil can be purchased on the majority of fuel cards too.
