This facility is open to authorized users seven days a week, 24 hours per day. It offers both diesel and unleaded gasoline.
Operation: Access to the system
is via a special data “Gasboy key”
assigned to each vehicle. In
order to fuel a vehicle, it is necessary to have this key and additional
information including personal identification number (PIN) and odometer
reading. The Gasboy key is assigned to the vehicle while the PIN is
assigned to an individual.
Each vehicle must be entered into the system by Central Stores. Each newly received vehicle has a Gasboy key issued along with the vehicle keys. Replacement Gasboy
key blanks can be obtained from Physical Plant Lock Shop. The key is then taken Central Stores

Access: Access to the fueling station is by means of the Gasboy key along with a PIN number. Each Department Head is responsible for completing and submitting an “Authorized Fuel Access” form to Central Stores to obtain a PIN number for their employees permitted access to the fuel system. Likewise, when an employee terminates employment, the Department Head should forward a memo asking to remove that persons name.
March of 2004 the University started issuing Wright Express fuel cards. These
cards are unique to a particular University vehicle and NOT an individual.
These cards may be used at participating stations to purchase fuel,
automotive supplies and minor maintenance. The advantage of using the Wright
Express card instead of other credit cards (personal credit cards, corporate
American Express) is that the Wright Express card automatically deducts taxes
for which the University is exempt thus providing automatic savings. In order
to use the Wright Express card, the individual operator must have a Personal
Identification Number (PIN) number assigned. The Fuel Authorization Form on
our web page may be used to request a PIN. Persons or departments desiring
additional information on the Wright Express card may contact Central Stores
