Features and Considerations

Speedpass is available in two varieties: a key tag and a car tag. If you elect to use the car tag, you can mount it on the rear window of your car on the same side as your filling cap. The car tag uses the same RFID process as the key tag and communicates wirelessly with the reader in the pump. One of the considerations to bear in mind when using the car tag is that you must place the tag in a position where the pump can read it; the tag must be within three feet of the pump for it to work. If the filling cap is at the back of your car by your license plate, you’ll want to attach your tag to the bottom of the car’s rear window. If the filling cap is toward the front of your car, you’ll want to attach the tag to the bottom of the car’s windshield. The main idea is to ensure that the tag comes into range of the reader on the pump when you pull up to fuel. Be sure that the tag is positioned on the correct side of the vehicle so that it is as close as possible to the reader when you fill up. If the tag is beyond the working range of the reader, your purchase cannot be authorized. Just watch for the red Mobil pegasus logo or the Exxon tiger logo to light up, and you know that you’re within range; this happens as soon as you pull up next to the pump, and the light stays on until you replace the nozzle in the pump when you’ve finished fueling.

If you have trouble getting the Speedpass to work at the gas station, the cause is most likely one of the following reasons: The Speedpass is not activated, your credit or check card may have passed its expiration date, or the key tag or car tag is not pointed properly at the reader.
