How Does it Work? Behind the Scenes of Filling Up

Veeder-Root

For most people, getting gas for their vehicle is an unavoidable, routine part of life. We do it because we have to do it.  

And while we all know how to operate a gas pump, most don’t realize that there’s a symphony of sensors and probes working together to keep the fuel flowing safely and efficiently. 

Today, we’re tackling the first piece of the fueling process, activating the dispenser.

Car Fill Up

Gas Pump vs. Fuel Dispenser 

Yes, there is a big difference between gas pumps and fuel dispensers, even though people use the words interchangeably. 

Some countries use gas pumps, which use a pumping device inside the unit to create suction. The pump pulls fuel out of the storage tank and dispenses it through the product lines and nozzles. 

In North America, we use fuel dispensers. These units work on a pressurized system using a submersible turbine pump immersed in the underground storage tanks to deliver fuel to the dispenser. 

Activating the Dispenser 

So what really happens? The customer pulls up to the dispenser, starts a transaction using a Point-of-Sale system like Passport®, removes the nozzle, and selects a grade.  

A signal is sent to the Red Jacket® ISOTROL™ 1-8 Control Box. The control box isolates signals from the dispensers, and protects against wiring shorts and phasing issues.  

The ISOTROL notifies the TLS-450PLUS Automatic Tank Gauge to activate the  Red Jacket® IQ Smart Control Box and submersible turbine pump

Now What? 

Next week, we’re breaking down the authorization process and how Veeder-Root’s integrated site solutions work together to provide a safe and seamless consumer experience at the gas station. 

You can find more information on every step of the process here.

“Think Beyond the Deadline”: 5 Tips for Retailers Navigating the New EMV Deadline

Gilbarco Veeder-Root

The following is a repost of the original June 16, 2020 article that appears on Gilbarco’s blog.Gilbarco Veeder-Root Encore 700 & Passport Edge

In the wake of the latest EMV deadline delay, the views of industry analysts are lining up.

The latest one echoes Chris Whitley, Gilbarco VP of Sales and Marketing: the pressure is still on.

Beyond tips or advice, retailers might also need consider the following warnings as well. Read the full article from CS News here.

 

Here are some of the pulled highlights:

1. Consider the Costs

“Based on recent reports from retailers, some major card processors are considering charging retainer fees of up to $50,000 to cover expected fraud liability for operators that do not upgrade by the deadline.”

 

2. Don’t Count on Additional Deadline Shifts

“Regardless of the final deadline date, retailers have a lot of progress to make and an inevitably limited timeframe. Proceeding promptly is the best course of action.”

 

3. Start Now

“Whether or not an operator expects to be ready by the current deadline, getting plans in motion now will save hassle and money in the long run.”

 

4. Turn to Experts for Help

Gilbarco has “created a certification to support their specific EMV programs, designating managed network services providers (MNSPs) that are familiar with deploying and servicing their EMV compliant hardware and software.”

 

5. Think Beyond the Deadline

“While meeting the EMV transition deadline may feel like a sprint to the finish line, upgrading POS security is just one aspect of network transformation that can help petroleum retailers thrive. View EMV transition as a beginning, not an end.”

The new outdoor EMV deadline will be April 17, 2021. If you haven’t begun your outdoor EMV upgrade, we strongly suggest contacting your local Gilbarco distributor as soon as possible.

You can find more information with Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s Quick EMV Migration Guide.

EMV DEADLINE DELAYED Until April 2021! But Retailers Advised To Stay On Schedule

EMV Delayed

EMV Deadline Moved To April 2021

Earlier this month, Visa and several other leading credit card issuers announced that they will delay the October 2020 EMV liability shift to April 17, 2021 due to complications caused by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

In a May 4th article that appeared on convenience.org, it states Visa had initially declined NACS request to delay as it was still monitoring the situation. NACS had requested a new deadline be set after the crisis passed and market forces could be reevaluated but Visa moved forward with setting a new deadline of April 17, 2021.

The six-month cushion will benefit retailers in varying ways, some greater than others, depending on their progress towards EMV compliance. For those that have the ball rolling, the delay may eliminate their lapse in compliance, keeping their businesses safe from fraud chargebacks. Retailers that haven’t started will still experience a gap in fraud liability protection.

“Most Gilbarco distributors suggest placing orders sooner rather than later,” said Chris Whitley – Gilbarco Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Getting on a distributor’s schedule now will help that retailer understand how much the new delay really benefits their business.”

Meanwhile—despite the recent announcement of the EMV deadline delay—many retailers are staying the course, despite the commercial disruption posed by COVID-19. Businesses that already put their EMV plans in motion are now seeing the fruits of their preparations – even during the pandemic.

How Much Could Your Cellulose Filter Actually Cost You?

Cellulose filters may be cheaper than our other filters, but it’s important to understand what that lower price tag means.
Cellulose filters provide no protection from water, which continues to reign as the largest threat to your fuel supply. When you choose Cellulose, you’re vulnerable to the many issues caused by water-contaminated fuel, including:
Cost1Equipment Damage
Excess water in your fuel can cause microbial growth, rust, etching, and corrosion—all of which can severely damage your equipment over time.
Downtime
Damaged equipment, fuel violations, and service calls all lead to pump downtime, which directly impacts your profitability.
Cost3Lost Customers
Customers who receive water-contaminated fuel are not going to be happy customers. Unhappy customers don’t come back. And in a world where those unhappy customers can share their bad experience with thousands of people with the click of a button, it’s more important than ever to guard against bad fuel.
Vehicle DamageCost4
Water-contaminated fuel can cause serious issues in customers’ vehicles, resulting in repair bills they don’t want to pay and frustration they won’t soon forget.
Cost5Violations & Fines
In most states, customers who suspect they’ve received contaminated fuel can file a complaint with their local Weights & Measures department. If that department determines there is water in your fuel, you can quickly find yourself bagging pumps, paying associated fines, and facing expensive service bills to fix the issue.
