Where are you buying gas that you have to put in zip code if using credit card? I always use my credit card for gas when traveling and have never had this happen.
Everywhere everytime. Maybe its just me.
Same here. And a few years back I tried all the work-around tricks with little success so I finally ended up placing a US address on a few of my credit cards and the zip code for that worked every time at the pump. However, this winter as an experiment I again tried the postal code trick using the two zeros at a number of stations and much to my surprise it worked with my CDN address credit cards almost all the time (if one of my cards wouldn't work at a given station, and that happened a couple of times, another would), including all the Flying J's we fueled up at on our way home from Florida last week. So I'm reassessing my considerable past skepticism regarding this postal code work-around. Wonder if some of the oil companies have finally come to their senses vis a vis our CDN postal code/zip code dilemma.
