Fueling a University Vehicle

University of Iowa Fleet Services operates and maintains a full service fuel island for university vehicles to re-fuel while on campus. The fuel island is available for local rental customers, leased vehicles, departmentally owned University vehicles and other equipment that may need fuel. The following short video will take you through the process of fueling a vehicle using the assigned fuel chip key.

When fueling on campus is not possible, the University of Iowa contracts with Wright Express for fuel credit cards. These cards are for fueling University owned and leased vehicles while traveling on University business. To find a participating facility, visit the Wright Express website. This short video will take you through the process of using a WEX Card to fuel a university vehicle.
