Drive through Petrol Brisbane Northside
One of the most stress inducing moments you can have as a Mum is when you need to stop to get petrol with the kids in the car.
It’s a lose-lose situation.
You either leave the kids in the car while you run in to pay, and get judged/run the risk of them getting abducted, heat stressed or injured some other way, or you take them in with you, which involves getting them in and out of the car in a high traffic environment, and then across and into the service station, which is a little kids nagging paradise.
Luckily there is an alternative!
I did not know that this even existed, but you can pay at the pump at some service stations across Brisbane. It’s not a new initiative, but I sure wasn’t aware of it previously, so I thought I should share it with all of the Mums of Brisbane to help them out. Perhaps there is an Oil Executive who is a mum now?
Anyway, there is a bit of a process to be able to do it, as you have to SET IT UP BEFORE YOU START PUMPING YOUR FUEL, so if you want to pay at the pump this is what you need to do:
- Go to a Pay at the Pump Caltex Service Station (Northside locations listed below)
- At the Bowser Find the Pay At The Pump screen (it will be able to take a card – It needs to have a PIN)
- Insert your card and enter your pin
- Follow the prompts on the screen (it will ask how much you want to spend)
- Fill the car up
- Replace the nozzle and select receipt if required
When you do it this way you are ‘pre-authorizing’ the amount you specify, but you will only pay for the fuel you use. If you spend less than the amount you specify, you will be refunded that amount.
