Auto Services announces new fueling technology

new fuel pumpBoth fuel pumps at the facilities complex will be closed July 10-21 as new fuel dispensers, right, and a new automated fuel management system are installed.

Anyone who drives a university vehicle is urged stop by the facilities complex to fill up before July 10.

Anyone who runs low on fuel during the closure can visit the automotive services office in the facilities complex for a loaner card to be used at any gas station.

The new system will no longer require blue fuel keys or typing mileage. Instead, the new system will allow the driver to swipe his or her UNT identification card to begin pumping gasoline.

All vehicles will be equipped with a two-part radio that connects to the vehicle’s on-board computer. A smaller receiver is installed near the fueling port on the vehicle. When drivers arrive at the pumps and place the dispenser nozzle into the vehicle’s fuel tank, the fuel system will identify the car and transmit the current odometer via a wireless connection.(Vehicles that were manufactured prior to 1996 still will require a manual odometer entry.)

Drivers need to take two important steps in order to use the technology:

  • Ensure you have a valid UNT identification card with a magnetic strip on the back. Anyone who needs a new identification card can take some other form of photo identification along with your employee number to the Eagle Student Services Center, room 105. Hours are 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Bring your university vehicle to automotive services to have the radio equipment installed. Depending on the model year, installation may take between 15 to 30 minutes. Drivers may visit automotive services anytime or send an email to Rickey Stinchcomb or Marta Smith for any special arrangements. For departments with multiple vehicles, should contact one of them to make arrangements to prepare all the vehicles as a group.

Drivers without the proper ID card or without the proper receiver on their vehicle will not be able to fuel up at the new pumps.
