GSA Fleet has the seven digit, vehicle tag number embossed on the face of each fleet card (Ex. G12-3456A). The “one fleet card per vehicle” concept applies to GSA Fleet vehicles only, and may not be true for an agency-owned or commercially leased vehicle.
A customer’s PIN/Driver ID will not be provided over the Internet. Please contact a local Fleet Management Center (FMC) for more information.
Call the Maintenance Control Center (MCC) at 1(866) 400-0411 or call your local FMC. GSA Fleet encourages the use of free manufacturer roadside assistance programs and, where the vehicle is out of warranty, has agreements with local towing companies which help save money and keep your rates low.

In accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR 13.1301), the government-wide commercial Fleet Services Card is authorized for the purchase of fuel, maintenance and repair of Government owned/operated motor vehicles.
Fleet Services Cards are issued to specific vehicles and should only be used for the vehicle to which it is issued.
An agency that leases a vehicle through GSA is the government’s agent for each purchase made with the Fleet Services Card and is responsible for each transaction. The agency is also responsible for ensuring compliance with applicable GSA Fleet and agency regulations and procedures.

Dollar limits on the fleet cards will be set based on the tank capacity of the vehicle. Pumps have merchant-set dollar limits built into the software that card providers cannot override. As fuel prices rise, fleet card provider’s work with merchants to determine the pump shutoff limits that make the most economical sense, and the merchant determines the final limit.
