I've found that a full tank of diesel at today's prices is just over the $75 pre-approval limit that most stations put on my credit card. This is really annoying because I've had it multiple times now shut off at $75, but I want to get it full, so I start a new transaction and get not even $1 in and then it overfills
(presumably because it starts filling full blast while already near full)
Today it stopped again due to that limit, and I decided no longer to try again, but now I'm potentially throwing off my MPG calculations (at least in the short term - long term, it will be correct in aggregate).
$3.829/gal * 19.587 gal = $75.00
If only the fuel price would drop again/more, then I could fill up before hitting the $ limit.
I could choose to fill it part way (ie $25), then start again a new transaction and go until it hits the full limit, so it will shut off naturally without overfilling. But that's a pain if not needed.
Thanks for listening to me vent
