Fueling Your SLAC Vehicles
By Pete Budrunus
onsite facility is provided for fueling the eight remaining DOE (owned)
light duty vehicles. These vehicles are identified by ‘E’ license
plates. Forklifts and scooters also fall into this category and are
fueled onsite. Both gasoline and diesel fuels are available at the fuel
station during hours of operation, which are 7 a.m. through 3 p.m.,
Monday through Friday (except holidays). The fueling station is adjacent
to Bldg. 035 (west side), in the parking lot between Bldg. 035 and Bldg.
To use this system, you must first obtain a SLAC Fuel Card for your
vehicle from the Transportation Department. This card identifies your
vehicle and authorizes use of the system each time you obtain fuel.
GSA Vehicles Must be Fueled Offsite
While attempts are being made to provide onsite fueling for GSA
vehicles, as of this writing, GSA (leased) vehicles must use offsite
commercial stations for fueling, and you must use your GSA Voyager
credit card for fuel transactions.
Receipts for all transactions should be turned in to the Transportation
Department for reconciliation. A reminder–use only regular unleaded
gasoline in GSA vehicles. Under our contract we are not permitted to use
higher grades of gasoline.
If an emergency situation should arise and fuel must be purchased
without using the Voyager card, you can be reimbursed by submitting a
SLAC petty cash request. You must attach the receipt to the petty cash
request and obtain the signature of the Transportation Manager for
reimbursement. Contact the
Transportation Department for details.
While most stations will accept the Voyager card, Arco stations do not
honor the Voyager card. Please note that the Sharon Heights Shell
station cannot be used for any GSA transaction. You should use a
vendor that accepts the Voyager card for all transactions related to
fuel or repair of your vehicle.
