Materials – Every account is provided with available materials that CFN has to offer. This includes Detailed Map Books, detailing how to get to every location, Tyvek envelopes for cards, and keychain holders for cards. We might even have some CFN pens we can send your way. Contact us to get a sample of the materials.
Cards – All cards are mailed out first-class the same day they are requested, actual arrival times vary depending upon your location. There is no limit to the number of cards you may request, cancel, update or renew. However, we reserve the right to discuss this with you if you have 2 vehicles and order 100 cards.
Application Processing – Upon receving your application, the general approval time is 7 days. However, if we cannot contact a reference, it may take longer, but you will be notified if a replacement reference is needed.
Daily Account Audit – Every day our customer service department will check your account for things like failures, and wrongs pin #’s. If we suspect one of your cards wil not be able to fuel or we suspect suspicious activity, you will receive a call the following business day.
Quarterly Newsletter and Immediate Updates – Every quarter we send out a CFN Newsletter with Fleet management advice and details about any updates to the CFN program. When supplied with your e-mail address, our customer service department will send you updates as they happen empowering you to use CFN to its full potential.
Fees – With CFN you pay ONLY for the price of fuel! We do not charge any Monthly, Service, Shipping, Handling, Per Card, Per Transaction, Startup, Administrative, or any other fee! If you have any questions about fees, Contact Us!
Description – Each card whether Driver or Vehicle can be given its own specific description, such as Vehicle #345 or Driver John Smith. These descriptions will show up on your invoice as the card title with details of all transactions following. See Image in Detailed Billing.
Odometer – Use the odometer to track your vehicle’s mileage. Not only is it a good idea to track miles per gallon, but a drastic increase/decrease can be a good sign of misuse, lack of driver diligence, or equipment failure; all of which require attention.
Manual Entry – This option allows the driver to enter a number with each transaction to specify the vehicle that is being fueled. Our software then takes that number and links it to the vehicles file in our office, which combines all purchases and a list of drivers who fueled that vehicle on your month-end invoice
Customized Pin # – Pin #’s can be transferred from prior fleet program or simply changed at any time to meet your driver’s needs.
Single Card Program – The Single Card Program gives you one customized card per vehicle or driver in your fleet or a combination of both. All Card Restrictions and Card Options are available with the Single Card Program.
Two Card Program – The Two Card System issues a Driver Card and a Vehicle Card for every driver and vehicle in your fleet. A fuel purchase cannot be completed without the swiping of both a Driver Card and a Vehicle Card. Detailed billing then shows you a list of your vehicles and who fueled them. The advantage to this program is that one card cannot work without the other so if a card is stolen or lost it cannot be used without a partnering card even if they know the Pin#. All Card Restrictions and Card Options are available with the Two Card Program.
Floating Pin Program – The Floating Pin Program is the Single and Two Card Programs mixed together to create a “best of both worlds” card. A Floating Pin Card acts like a Single Card, in that you need only one card per vehicle, but each driver can use their own personalized Pin# to authorize the transaction, detailed billing then shows you a list of your vehicles and who fueled them. In essence, it is the Two Card Program without having to swipe the Driver’s Card. The Floating Pin Card works great for companies with driver’s routinely swapping vehicles. All Card Restrictions and Card Options are available with the Floating Pin Program.
Card Restriction Controls
All restrictions are Per Card and can be set specifically to Each Vehicle or Driver’s fueling needs
Vehicle Tank Size – Limit the amount of fuel per transaction to the actual size (volume) of your vehicle’s tank. This feature is a great deterrent of “same transaction skimming”.
Fuel Type – Limit the type of fuel for each specific driver or vehicle.
Stop paying for driver’s accidentally pumping Premium into your vehicles!*
Transactions – Limit the number of transactions allowed per day.
If your vehicle’s only fill up once per day, you can make sure that there are not any “extra” transactions on your invoice by setting your cards to only allow one fill up per day.
Time of Day – Limit the time of day that your cards are valid.
If your vehicles only run from 6 am – 6 pm, then we can set you cards to authorize transactions only within your business hours.
Day of Week – Limit the day of the week your cards are valid.
Does one of your vehicles run only on the weekend? CFN can limit that vehicle or driver’s card to authorize transactions Saturday and Sunday only.
Fueling Location by Type – Limit at what type of cardlock site your cards are valid.
The Commercial Fueling Network has two different types of stations; CFN Cardlock Sites & CFNnet Sites. The CFNnet Sites do not distinguish some card restrictions such as fuel type. CFNnet Sites can be restricted from your cards and your cards can be set to allow CFN Cardlock Sites only.
Fueling Location by State/Province – Limit in what State/Province(s) your cards are valid. If you find that certain states en route are a problem to your bottom line due to high taxes, etc. you can restrict your driver’s use of fueling sites in that state and encourage driver’s to fill up before they cross the state line.

Date – What date fuel was purchased.
Time – Exact time transaction was finished.

Our software then takes that number and links it to the vehicles file in our office, which combines all purchases and a list of drivers who fueled that vehicle on your month-end invoice.
Volume Discounts – CFN’s Volume DIscounts reward you for growth. As you reach each volume milestone, your price decreases. Our volume discounts go as high as $0.115 per gallon.
Payment Discounts – CFN’s Payment Discounts reward you for promptly paying your bill (by the 15th) with a $0.03 per gallon discount. We will even give you $0.05 per gallon discount automatically if you sign up for automatic ACH Direct Withdrawl out of any bank account you specify! Depending on your volume, you could save up to $0.165 per gallon.
Price Faxing – At the CFNdesk, every account has an option of having a route planner faxed to them every Tuesday and Friday. The route planner contains sites that you specify and the prices that you will see on your bill at the end of the month. This will enable you to monitor your fuel costs throughout the month and allow you to be proactive in your fleet management.
Monthly Gallon Limit – Every Account has the option of limiting the accounts gallons per month. For example, if you know you will never go through more than 500 gallons per month it is a good idea to set a monthly gallon limit to prevent unauthorized fuel purchases from taking you over your limit. Real Time Internet Access – As if CFN’s Card Controls weren’t enough, we have taken it a step further with Real Time Internet Access. Every Account has the option to permit as many authorized users as needed to manage your account from any computer with internet access.
