Having to stop at more than one station just to get gas sucks! I've seen
discussion about using some other numbers in place of zip codes for you
Canadian folks. I don't remember what the answer was tho.....

If I were you, I'd call my credit card company customer support and tell them
what is happening. I imagine they know about it and I do think there is a
solution or other number you can use to get the pump to accept your card.
Call them and see what they say! It can't hurt and there is probably an easy
answer. They DO want you to be able to use their card!

I just filled up with gas at a Pilot near home last Friday. On their gas pumps, they had a $75 limit if you used a Master Card or $100 limit if you used a Visa...both credit, not debit, cards.

They do. I pretty much exclusively use our Pilot card when in the US.

Various stations around here are now asking for your zip code here also - not sure how that provides security as I would think if your wallet/purse is stolen/lost that contains your cc's, including your fuel card, there are other cc's and documents in there that have your zip code also.

Our scenario was that the thieves specifically lifted our cards and put the wallet back in the purse and the purse back in the back of our car (shame on me for forgetting to lock).

I have nothing in my wallet with my zip code.

If a thief has "skimmed" your card with a bogus card reader they don't
know the zip code associated with the card but they will still rack up
charges on it.

A guy from church had his wallet stolen recently at a gas station. He got the
pump going and tossed his card back in the front seat. Thieves work in
pairs with one driving and one walking. They spotted his wallet in the seat
and just grabbed it thru the passenger door and sped off. Apparently they
can get some stuff on the card before you can call the company to report
it stolen. If you call the cops first and make a report, by the time you
get around to calling the card company the charges can be pretty huge.

Be careful out there.

Your Drivers License doesn't have your zip code on it? My Texas DL does.
