Get Carded: Simplify Your Life with Fuel Card Options

Fuel cards from MaxYield Cooperative are handy, but did you know they can make your recordkeeping easier?

“There are lots of options available to help you get the most from your fuel card,” said Chad Besch, MaxYield Cooperative’s energy team leader.

Q: Where can I use my MaxYield fuel card?

A: Our cardtrols in Britt, Dickens, Emmetsburg, Everly, Fostoria, Gruver, Milford, Spencer, Superior, West Bend and Whittemore accept MaxYield fuel cards and credit cards. Our fuel stations in Langdon, Mallard and Ringsted only accept MaxYield fuel cards.

Q: Why does the fuel pump screen ask me different questions, depending on which pump I use?

A: Don’t panic if you get slightly different questions from pump to pump at MaxYield’s fuel locations. Various computer technology is available to operate today’s fuel pumps. MaxYield uses one system, while The Andersons used a different operating system. Although the computer software that runs all the fuel pumps throughout our trade territory hasn’t changed, your MaxYield fuel card can now be used with all fuel pumps at MaxYield’s fuel stations.

Q: How can my fuel card make my recordkeeping simpler?

A: Our cards make it easy for you to track useful information. Let’s say both you and your kids use the same MaxYield fuel card to fill up your vehicles. If you want to document who in the family is buying fuel and how much they are using, you can design vehicle #1, vehicle #2, etc. When someone in your family swipes the fuel card at the pump, the computer will ask him or her to enter the vehicle number.

You can add as many vehicles as you like. Also, one fuel card can have the same personal identification number (PIN) for each vehicle.

If you have fleet vehicles for your business, you may want to designate a separate number for each vehicle but have just one fuel card with one PIN. Perhaps you’d rather have separate fuel cards, since more cards give you more information. Just let us know what data you want to track, and how you want to track it. We’ll find the right solution for you.

Q: What if my fuel card wears out, gets broken or is lost?

A: We can lock out lost cards. We can also make you a new card and mail it to you. Each card requires a PIN. Just a reminder—for your security, do not write your PIN on your fuel card.

Q: If I have more questions, who can I contact?

A: Call Energy Central at MaxYield (866-711-7282), or Sara Sparks in MaxYield’s Spencer office (712-262-6650).
