  • ALL state-owned stations now open to public (forms here)

    This thread is now outdated as of April 1, 2011
    Stations owned by the State of Utah now accept Visa
    -----------------------

    Update Nov 2009:

    The forms are here:
    http://fleet.utah.gov/fuel/PublicCNGUserInformation.htm

    ---------------------------------

    Hey gang,

    OK, if you want to use the State-owned CNG stations you need to fill out the following forms and fax them in to Kathryn Anderson. In order for the general public to gain access a GASCARD will be issued by the State of Utah. No other card will work at the state managed sites (for example, your Haycock GASCARD for Las Vegas will not work at the U). The GASCARD issued by the state will work at all the commercial sites that accept GASCARD. By signing the user agreement the user agrees to all the terms set forth by the State of Utah, including giving priority to state vehicles at the pumps. If the user fails to pay within the agreed up terms the card will be locked.

    The customer account number will be filled in by the state once the account is set up. PIN numbers are included with the cards when mailed to you.

    In an effort to keep the cost down on everyone's invoice. The State of Utah will be changing everyone that provided their email address to electronic invoices. This will lower the monthly invoice by $5.00. If anyone prefers to still get a paper copy please let the State of Utah know. Also if you didn't provide your email address and want to receive an electronic invoice. Please let the State know.

    Kudos to Representative Hunsaker for HB 103 which provided for this, and many thanks to Jeff Done, Fuel Dispensing Manager, for moving quickly on this initiative.

    The
    following locations opened to the public on July 1st.

    Granite School District
    3000 W. Parkway Blvd. (2700 So.)
    West Valley City, UT

    Alpine School District
    490 N. State Street
    Lindon, UT

    University of Utah
    Motor Pool Fueling Facility
    425 S. 1778 East
    Salt Lake City, UT

    Jordan School District #1
    200 East 9300 South
    Sandy Utah 84070

    Utah State University (USU)
    900 East 1400 North
    Logan Utah 84321
    (Motor Pool Building on 1400 North just east of 800 E)

    We have been asked by the State to not use the UDOT station. There are some safety concerns in having the public access it and besides it was designed for overnight refueling so the pressure on a fast-flll stinks anyway. {ok so where is this station you ask? Hmmmm... somewhere in SLC I think}

    * * *

    The correct way to use the State of Utah sites are as follows:

    First: Swipe card and get authorization
    Second: Once your card has been authorized, you may turn on the pump and begin fueling.....

    The sites are going down because the users are hooking up the nozzle to their vehicles, and turning on the pump.. Then they go and authorize their gascard.

    The card reader thinks that the pumps are being used and the card is denied telling them to try later. The user tries again and again.. On the third try the entire system shuts down...

    PLEASE AUTHORIZE YOUR CARD BEFORE TURNING ON THE PUMPS!


    Frequently Asked Questions


    Q. Why do they ask for our tank size, number of fills per day, per month? Will my answers to these questions limit the fuel available to me?


    A. The tank size matters, but the other information is just so the State can plan for anticipated demand. If, for example, you put down that your tank is 9 gallons, the dispenser will not let you fill to more than 9 gallons on one visit. Other than the tank limitation there is no limitation on your use of the facilities apart from what you agree to on the application (giving priority to State vehicles, limited hours at the U during events, etc.)

    Q. What pricing can we anticipate at these stations?

    A. In the past the State was pricing CNG based on the cost to dispense the fuel plus overhead. The cost was different at different sites based on the Natural Gas for the state buildings. They will now be getting the CNG fueling rate so the price at the sites will be close to the private sector prices. {Some have reported the U at 94 cents, Alpine SD at 75 cents}

    Q. Why the prompt for an odometer reading?

    A. The odometer reading is a feature used to manage the state fleet. The general public can enter in random numbers if they want. Jeff recommends entering in the correct odometer reading. The invoice you will be receiving will calculate the miles per gallon entered in at the card reader (this calculation applies, of course if you exclusively use the State refueling network).

    Q. Where do we call to report station problems?

    A. The GASCard pumps are handled by a different phone # than the Questar ones. For the GASCard pumps, call 801-538-3440 or 800-678-3440. For Questar, call 801-324-5111.

    Q. Can the GASCARDs be used elsewhere?


    A. Yes, we have found they can be used in Las Vegas at the CNG stations there too, eliminating the need to get the special Haycock Petroleum card.

    Whooooooooooo Hoooooooooo! Nice, my wife works there and can fill up at work now. I couldn't have asked for a better location, except my own garage maybe. Thanks for the heads up, we were waiting for that one.

        Will this gascard work in Vegas?

          Kathryn Anderson's ph and fax info is on the forms (see my top post).

          I suspect the Utah-issued GASCARD will not work in Vegas as others have found that only the Haycock-issued one works there (although one CNGchatter said his CFN Network card worked... review the Nevada forum for details).

            New documents uploaded

            6/24/08
            Kathryn updated a couple of the documents to include information not requested in the old ones. If you have already sent in your application please print out CNG USER PIN WORKSHEET.doc and PUBLIC CNG USER AGREEMENT a1.doc and re-fax them to her, thanks.

              The user pin worksheet appears to be the same as the original document. Is there something else they need us to put on it?
              Thanks.

                  I hope this post is not interpreted as ingratitide, because I am thrilled that the U is now open to the public, but woudn't it be easier and cheeper for the state to put in a credit card machine rather than issuing gascards and billing individuals whos bill might be less than $10/month? I know in my business we figure it costs more than that just to cut an invoice.

                    John, do you have to apply for the same Gascard to use the school district stations, or will they have credit card readers?

                      On the fill station for Alpine School District, so you don't run into problems getting to it from Locust Avenue when the district maintenance yards are locked, access the location from State Street in Lindon.

                      The address is:
                      Alpine School District
                      490 N. State Street
                      Lindon, UT 84042

                      Happy filling!

                        Guess what came in the mail today? The long-awaited GasCard issued by the Great State of Utah.

                        I've already tried it out and report excellent pressure and no problems with the card reader. Punch in the supplied PIN enter your odometer mileage and wait for approval. For those that don't already know the State of UT CNG rate is $1.00 per gge, a small price to pay for the added convenience and reduced cross-town travel.

                        Thanks to Margaret, Jeff, Kathyrn, and Rep Hunsaker for their combined efforts in getting HB 103 passed to make this a reality.

                        It's almost like having your very own FuelMaker!

                          All state-owned facilities (K-12, higher education) are in the same system, so you must fill out the forms and get the special GASCARD.

                          I got my cards today, went to Alpine SD but after entering the PIN and odometer, then pump # it said ACCOUNT LOCKED. Kathryn sent me an e-mail saying the system will accept our cards on July 1st. lshuster got lucky, I guess. Oh, and Alpine SD has a price of $0.75 not a dollar like at the U.
