GVR Passport: Updates, Tips & Tricks!

Gilbarco Passport POS Soon to Support Fuel Prices Over $9.999

With the rising fuel prices, there have been some concerns about the ability to sell fuel at prices above $9.999 per unit. Gilbarco has heard these concerns and is addressing them by developing a feature within Passport POS to enable fuel prices above $9.999 per unit. We have received the suggestion to sell fuel at half-gallon or quarter-gallon increments; however, this is not allowed in most states as it tends to mislead consumers who have come to expect the displayed prices to be for whole gallons. So Gilbarco is working towards a more universally accepted solution that will keep whole-gallon units and allow a price $10 or higher.

The solution keeps a 4-digit price, but shifts the decimal place (i.e. $X.XXX becomes $XX.XX), enabling prices at $10 per unit or higher. As a consequence, fuel must be sold to the penny rather than to the tenth of a cent.

Implementation of this solution works as follows:

  • Changing to the two-decimal price format will be a toggle option within Passport’s Manager Workstation.
  • The format change must be applied to every fuel grade and every dispenser at the site. If the two-decimal format is selected, then all prices will be limited to two decimal places even if the price is below $10 per unit.
  • To comply with Weights & Measures, all dispenser price displays should be changed to reflect the two-decimal prices. Changing the price format on the dispenser must be done on the dispenser itself, it cannot be done through Passport. Depending on the dispenser hardware, a technician may be required to configure the dispenser price display.
    • On Gilbarco Veeder-Root dispensers, this change cannot be completed by the Insite360 Forecourt remote management tool.
  • To comply with Weights & Measures, all price signs should be changed to reflect the two-decimal prices. Most electronic price signs are not capable of receiving and displaying the two-decimal format. To avoid automatically pushing a price that will be incorrectly displayed on the price sign, Passport will revert to a manual price sign configuration when configured for a two-decimal price format.

Note, this feature is only necessary for sites selling fuel at $10 or more. Sites selling all fuel grades below $10 per unit will experience no change. This feature is planned to be released as a maintenance pack for Passport versions 21.02 and 21.03. Release is targeted for the end of September 2022, pending network approval.

Fuel Variance W H I T E P A P E R

Hidden Costs, Hidden Causes and What to Do About Them

Something isn’t adding up, and you may not even know it. Due to a variety of factors, the amount of fuel you receive and the amount you dispense to consumers may not be the same. This difference is called fuel variance — the difference between the recorded and actual amounts of fuel in your tanks at a given time. Physical fuel losses caused by theft or leaks are readily understood and accounted for. But there are hidden causes that are difficult to detect and equally challenging to manage. For many retailers, these less obvious causes aren’t high on their list of concerns. But the effort to learn why they occur might just be worth it when it comes to their bottom lines.

Danny Seals Product Marketing Manager, Retail Dispensers, Gilbarco Veeder-RootDanny Seals, Product Marketing Manager, Retail Dispensers, Gilbarco Veeder-Root goes through the costs, causes and what to do to address fuel variance.

Veeder-Root Technical Support Notification: Probe & Sensor Wiring

Probe & Sensor Wiring

Introduction

Veeder-Root has specific requirements for all Automatic Tank Gauge (ATG), probe, sensor and Pressurized Line Leak Detection (PLLD) transducer wiring – this is to maintain intrinsic safety as well as reduce electrical noise interference. This notification will provide a brief introduction into Veeder-Root’s probe and sensor wiring requirements. This should be used in conjunction with local, state and federal electrical codes.


Basic Wiring & Installation Requirements

The following are Veeder-Root’s field wiring requirements:

  • All probes and sensors must use two-wire shielded cable.*
  • Use a single continuous length of shielded cable with no splices to ensure optimum signal strength.
  • All shielded cable runs must be less than 1000 feet.
  • An epoxy pack must be used for all wiring splices in the field.
  • Weatherproof junction boxes are required for all conduit runs to the monitoring locations (e.g., STP sump or dispenser pan).
  • All shields must be grounded at the console, cut-off in the field.
  • When exiting the console, shielded cable must be run through rigid conduit.
  • Shielded cable should be rated between 14 to 18 AWG stranded copper wire and must be rated less than 100 picofarads per foot.**

* When installing a three-wire sensor, use a three-wire shielded cable.
** Refer to the TLS-450PLUS Site Prep and Installation Manual (577014-073) for wiring examples.


ATG Installation & Grounding

  • All three divider plates must be left in place in-between any of the four slots in the TLS-450PLUS console or the TLS-XB Expansion Box.
  • The divider plates and empty slot covers cannot be modified in any way. This includes drilling holes or cutting the plates.

Note: Removing or modifying the divider plate can lead to electrical noise interference issues and violates UL/cUL and other licensing bodies.

  • Four-conductor or more shielded cable cannot be used with Veeder-Root probes or sensors. Two wires cannot be connected to a sensor while the other two wires are connected to another device, even if the two devices are installed in the same sump.
  • Confirm the console has two isolated grounds.

To test the grounds, disconnect these two cables from the console. Place the leads of the ohmmeter on each grounding wiring and confirm it reads less than 1 ohm of resistance. If it reads more than 1 ohm of resistance, then the console has bad grounding, which could be a cause of an electrical noise interference issue.


Installation Review

This example shows a clean installation.

✅ One pair of two-conductor shielded cable is used per device.

✅ All shields are grounded at the console.

✅ All shielded cable is run through a rigid conduit.


This example shows an incorrect installation.

The field wiring does not meet Veeder-Root, UL/cUL and other licensing bodies’ wiring requirements. This site is using four-conductor shielded cable. (Shields are not shown).
As mentioned before, two-conductor shielded cable is required for all probes and sensors.

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 (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-365-blog/microsoft-365-apps-say-farewell-to-internet-explorer-11-and/ba-p/1591666) . 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%
2. Safari: 18%
3. Edge: 9%
4. Firefox: 5%
5. Samsung Internet: 1%

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.
