The Ultimate Guide to Understanding Gas Station POS Systems

The point-of-sale system is the heart of your enterprise; that’s where purchases, inventory tracking, invoice verification, and customer strategic planning all come together.

This blog is for you if you’re new to the service station industry and want to learn more about some of the main critical systems (particularly the POS system) that help with service station management. Take a look at this guide to understand why a POS system is essential for your gas station to increase productivity and profitability.

Understanding The Concept Of POS System

POS systems are similar to checkout counters. However, they are computer-based and allow simple access to all of your convenient shop or fuel station records. POS technology can benefit your company in a variety of ways. This is how.

Your executives and staff can gain valuable insights into consumer preferences using POS systems. Your staff no longer needs to remember the rates and product specifications. Furthermore, a POS system uses a thumbnail image to show all of the products in your store, which consumers may pick and add to their baskets.

What Is The Function Of a POS System?

Your business can collect cash from consumers and maintain sales records with POS technology. It appears simple, yet based on whether you operate digitally or have a physical shop, the system can operate in various methods.

The cash machine in a shop is referred to as a point-of-sale device. The latest POS solutions are computerized, allowing you to check out a consumer from anywhere. All you require is a POS application and a gadget that can connect to the internet, like a smartphone or computer.

Various operational, financial, and advertising abilities are required to run a gas station. These abilities are required for your business to run successfully, from ensuring sufficient stock to compiling quarterly sales statistics. Having a well-functioning POS technology can be beneficial in ensuring that all of your processes run smoothly and maximize profits.

Brief History of Gas Stations

While it is true that improving a service station takes effort and expense, it is also true that strategy implementation will assist you in making your mark in the industry. But how were gas stations made? Who was the pioneer of gas stations?

We have compiled a guide to help you discover the origins of gas stations. Take a look at this guide to understand the historical background of gas stations.

The Origin

The inaugural drive-in gas station debuted in Pennsylvania in 1913. Since 1905, vehicles in the United States were authorized to fill their fuel at gas stations, but these were merely roadside setups. Traditionally, drivers purchased fuel in containers from pharmacists and blacksmith stores and filled their tanks. In Pittsburgh, a historical landmark was formed with the inauguration of this gas station on St. Clair Street.

20th Century Trends

Bowser’s idea ushered in a new type of ‘gas station’ industry. Petroleum was supplied directly on the curbside, resulting in traffic bottlenecks. Even earlier gas stations depended on roadside pumps. By 1910, when there were half a million cars on American roadways, this trend became an issue. The answer was the drive-in service stations, which helped usher in a successful period for American automobiles.

In its first week, it supplied 30 gallons of fuel for twenty-seven cents per gallon, and drive-in gas stations proliferated almost as quickly as the automotive industry.  As newly formed oil businesses competed for market dominance, the 1911 breakdown of the Standard Oil cartel spurred innovation and gas station expansion.

There was originally minimal necessity for other automobile solutions, as Ford’s cars were built for uncomplicated user upkeep. Each Ford was equipped with an “oil cup” so the motorist could maintain their vehicle. Nevertheless, as GM started to overtake Ford in popularity, gas station owners started to build “greasing stations.” In 1926, Sinclair established the initial three outlets with lubricating machinery.

The drive-in gas station sector was about to face a drastic upheaval, irrespective of design or use, with the introduction of self-service outlets. When Frank Ulrich launched a self-service gas station in 1947, the greatest danger to the career progression of gas station personnel emerged.

Thanks to technological advancement, manufacturers have introduced new solutions and products to help gas station owners optimize their business.

JWK Web Store No Longer to Support Internet Explorer

Microsoft To End Support of Internet
Explorer 11 on June 15, 2022
RIP Internet Explorer

We received notification from our eCommerce provider that when Microsoft ends their support of Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022, they in turn will follow suit by ending support for Internet Explorer on June 23, 2022. That does not mean that Internet Explorer will stop working; it just means the browser will no longer be supported in the event you encounter any issues while using Internet Explorer. 

Microsoft is saying that most sites will continue on without interruption using their Microsoft Edge. If there are incompatible sites, Edge does allow for an Internet Explorer compatibility.

This is directly from the Microsoft site:

“Over the last year, you may have noticed our movement away from Internet Explorer (“IE”) support, such as an announcement of the end of IE support by Microsoft 365 online services ( . Today, we are at the next stage of that journey: we are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications. Microsoft Edge has Internet Explorer mode (“IE mode”) built in, so you can access those legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and applications straight from Microsoft Edge. With Microsoft Edge capable of assuming this responsibility and more, the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10.”

We’ll let you decide what works best for you and your organization.  We do not get many calls of people having browser compatibility issues.  Our eCommerce provider is recommending people switch to Google Chrome.  At this time, Chrome is the number one browser used by customers visiting our site but not the only one.

Here are the top 5 browsers used by those visiting our site in 2022 so far:
1. Chrome: 65%

Different Types Of Fuels That You Should Know

However, people must be aware of the different fuels available at a gas station. Take a look at this guide to learn about three common types of fuel.

Characteristics Of An Ideal Fuel

The following are the characteristics of an ideal fuel:

  1. It must have a high thermal conductivity.
  2. It must have a modest ignition level. In case the ignition rate is too moderate, the fuel will rapidly burst into flames, and if it’s too excessive, the fuel will have to be reheated for a prolonged period before it could spontaneously combust.
  3. It should burn at a slow pace and emit heat slowly.
  4. It must be reasonably priced and freely accessible. 
  5. It must produce minimal pollution when burned.

Types Of Fuels

The following are the common types of fuels available in the USA:

1. Ethanol

This substance is referred to as grain alcohol or diethyl ether. It’s a transparent, combustible fluid formed by fermenting carbohydrates in plants like maize stems and leaves, grasses, and many cactus species. Ethanol has a wide range of uses. It’s typically found in hand sanitizer and antimicrobial antiseptics with sanitizing gels. Almost all of the fuel we use nowadays incorporates up to 10% of ethyl alcohol. When ethanol is mixed with petroleum, it raises the octane level, which improves engine efficiency and torque.

2. Gasoline

Gasoline is one of the most prevalent fuel kinds for a car. It’s clear and made from the crude oil distillation process. It’s utilized in spark-ignited combustion engines and is available in multiple variants.

Let’s have a look at the benefits and drawbacks 


  • It’s a cost-effective solution
  • Ensures optimal torque
  • It’s easily accessible
  • It’s adaptable to a variety of settings


  • This fuel produces a lot of harmful fumes
  • It has lower fuel efficiency than diesel

3. Diesel

Diesel fuel is derived from crude oil, although it is processed differently from gasoline. It’s utilized in many commercial and manufacturing settings, cargo vehicles, and agrarian machinery.

Diesel fuel comes in two varieties: one for cars and the other for off-road automobiles. Diesel-powered vehicles have a higher mpg rate and drivability than gasoline-powered automobiles. Furthermore, even though diesel is pricey, many motorists believe it provides maximum satisfaction. Volkswagen is one of the most famous diesel automotive brands in the world.

 A person filing fuel in their car

Gas station owners must check their seller, assess a POS device, ensure its rating, and scrutinize overall performance before finalizing their purchase. If you or anyone you know owns a gas station and needs a new canopy, the best thing they can do is contact John W. Kennedy. We also provide a comprehensive array of solutions and goods from leading suppliers of petroleum technology.

Our top-of-the-line Gilbarco equipment, POS technology, and gas station supplies may help you customize your service station to be more technologically advanced.

Bravo Technical Service Bulletin: Installing New Construction Fittings in Cold Climates

Bravo LogoInstalling New Construction Fittings in Cold Climates

Bulletin Description

• Proper heat curing of epoxy in cold weather conditions.
• In weather conditions below 50°F, heat will be needed to cure epoxy used for the  installations of Bravo full body fittings and test reducers. However, do not heat the fitting above 150°F. Extremely high temps can damage entry fittings and cause test ports to leak.

Do not use NOV heat blankets directly on full body fittings. These greatly exceed the allowable installation temperature and will damage the fitting bodies as well as the test ports.

  • Recommendation: Sustain heat on the entire interior of sump until full cure cycle has been achieved.
  • Warning: Before applying heat make sure LEL ( Lower Explosive Limit) are measured and are at safe levels.
  • Tip: Use an IR temperature gauge to measure surface temperature of sump and fittings.

1) Pre-heat sump and fitting to a maximum of 150°F.
2) Pre-heat Bravo epoxy to a maximum of 100°F.
3) Apply Bravo epoxy to the fitting per installation guide.
4) Sustain temperature of fitting/adhesive following cure charts.
5) Do not move or adjust sumps or fittings during cure cycle.
6) Make sure the adhesive is fully cured before conducting a testing following epoxy manufacturers’ guidelines.
