10 Tips Gas Stations Don't Want You to Know
Gaspump MSN Money compiled a list of 10 things that could potentially save
you money next time you go to the gas station. It turns out that gas
stations, oil companies, credit card companies and a host of others may not
have your best interest in mind. Consider these the nuggets of consumer
information those companies don’t want you to know. Some are obvious, but
others not so much.
1) Shop for the best deal: Most gas stations buy from their proprietary
company, so they don’t have the luxury of shopping around. Luckily, you do.
The cheapest gas in your area may not always be at the same station, so it
’s to your advantage to search out the best deal.
2) Gas stations take the hit when prices rise, and that’s when they
especially hate the credit card fee, because they’re turning over a large
percentage of their cut to card companies. That’s why prices can rise
quickly but tend to fall more slowly as station owners attempt to make up
lost revenue. Some stations offer better deals to consumers who pay cash.
3) There’s no such thing as “better gas.” Companies like Chevron try
to tell you their gas is superior because it has Techron in it. However, all
gas has detergents that prevent clogging in the fuel injector, and no brand
of gas is better than any other. Don’t buy more expensive fuel just to get
a brand name.
4) Don’t use a debit card. When you pay with a debit card, the bank sets
aside a certain amount of your funds to cover the transaction. You could
pay $15 for gas but have $50 held by the bank before the transaction goes
through. This could potentially lead to a bounced check.
5) Gas cards are probably a bad idea. Most gas cards have high annual
percentage rates and lack certain fraud protections, and having one may
discourage you from shopping around for a better deal. Check CardRatings.com
, but in general these cards end up costing more than they save.
6) Use the internet. Sites like GasBuddy.com can help find the cheapest
gas in your area. GasPriceWatch.com and Gaswatch.com could also help you
find cheap fuel in your area, but with 174 local sites, as well as maps and
message boards, GasBuddy remains the most extensive.
7) Make sure a gallon is a gallon. States check the accuracy of gas pumps
, but some don’t do it very frequently. Arizona, for example, has only 18
workers to check 2,300 stations. For starters, keep your eyes on the numbers
and make sure they don’t start moving before gas is flowing. Old equipment
especially can come up with inaccurate results.
8) Buy coffee, not soda. Trying to make up more revenue from the
convenience store, gas stations often charge more for soda, candy and other
food products. Coffee, cigarettes and beer, on the other hand, remain cheap
because they’re high-volume.
9) Don’t count on a service station. The divorce between car repair and
fueling up has become almost complete. Gas stations are no longer in the
repair business.
10) Search out E85. If you own a flex-fuel car, E85 is typically less
expensive (though it also cranks out fewer miles to the gallon, so do the
math to make sure it works out in your favor).

MSN理财编译的10件事情,可能下一次你去加油站潜在的节省你的钱的列表。事实证明
,加油站,油公司,信用卡公司和其他主机可能没有考虑到您的最大利益。考虑这些消
费信息这些公司不想让你知道掘金。有些是显而易见的,但其他人没有这么多。
1)店最划算:大多数加油站从他们的私有公司购买的,所以他们不会有货比三家的奢
侈品。幸运的是,你怎么做。在您所在地区最便宜的加油站可能不总是在同一站,所以
它是你的优势,寻找最好的交易。
2)加油站采取的打击,当价格上升,这时候他们特别讨厌的信用卡费用,因为他们自
己切的很大比例上缴给信用卡公司。这就是为什么价格会迅速上升,但往往跌得越慢站
业主试图弥补损失的收入。有些车站为您提供更好的交易,以消费者谁付现金。
3)有没有这样的东西作为“好气”。公司雪佛龙试图告诉你他们的气是优越的,因为
它有TECHRON在里面。然而,所有的气体具有的洗涤剂,以防止堵塞在燃料喷射器,并
没有品牌气体的比任何其它更好。不要购买更昂贵的燃料只是为了获得一个品牌名称。
4)不要使用借记卡。当您支付的借记卡,银行留出一定量的资金,以支付交易。你可
以支付15美元的天然气,但有50美元的银行持有的前交易经历。这可能会导致一个空头
支票。
5)燃气卡可能是一个糟糕的主意。最气卡有很高的年利率,缺乏一定的欺诈保护,并
且有一个可以阻止你身边一个更好的交易逛街。检查CardRatings.com,但一般这些卡
要付出的成本比他们更节省。
6)使用互联网。网站类似GasBuddy.com可以帮助找到最便宜的加油站在您的区域。
GasP​​riceWatch.com和Gaswatch.com也可以帮助你找到便宜的燃料在您
的地区,但随着174本地站点,以及地图和留言板,GasBuddy仍然是最广泛的。
7)确保一加仑一加仑。国家检查气泵的准确性,但有些不这样做非常频繁。亚利桑那
州,例如,只有18名工人检查2,300台。对于初学者,让你的眼睛上的数字,并确保他
们不开始移动之前,气体流动。旧设备尤其是可以想出不准确的结果。
8)买咖啡,而不是苏打水。拉上补下,从便利店更多的收入,加油站常常汽水,糖果
等食品产品充电了。咖啡,香烟和啤酒,在另一方面,仍然便宜,因为他们是大批量的。
9)不要指望一个服务站。汽车维修和加油之间的离婚已经成为基本完成。加油站不再
维修业务。
10)搜索出来的E85。如果你拥有一个灵活燃料汽车,E85通常较便宜(虽然它也曲柄出
更少的英里每加仑,所以做数学题,以确保它工作对你有利)。
