Many small businesses wonder what it takes to use a stand alone cardlock location. As wages rise the cost of full serve retail gas stations is rising with it and stand alone commercial fueling can save time as well as money. They see these commercial fueling stations with little wait and 24 hour access and have questions. Star Oilco can make getting set up with Pacific Pride in Oregon easy.
Self-serve diesel is already legal in Oregon and often cheaper at a commercial cardlock throughout Oregon.
Self-serve gasoline is allowed in several rural counties in Oregon outside of the I-5 corridor. Self-serve gasoline in the more populated parts of Oregon requires a business use better described below.
Send any commercial fueling questions you have Star Oilco’s way.
If you operate a company vehicle, commercial cardlock is the best way to upgrade your fleet security from fuel theft and seize control of corporate and small business fleet fueling. We are there to serve your business all around the United States. In Oregon though, gasoline is not legally dispensed without a few safety precautions required by Oregon state.
Oregon law does not allow self-serve gasoline along the I-5 corridor. Diesel is legally allowed for self serve, but gasoline as a flammable is not. Therefore, the Oregon Fire Marshall has rules restricting the use of commercial cardlock gasoline for individual uses. For commercial uses Pacific Pride, CFN, Comdata, Voyager and other Commercial Cardlock networks are allowed for businesses in Oregon. If you are fleet operator or an individual outside of Oregon, these requirements do not apply in your home state, but if you substantially operate in Oregon the state Fire Marshall will have an expectation of these rules applying to you.
