your right, I drove to Florida a few years ago and had that problem with gas stations in North and South Carolina but other places it wasn't required. However, when it's required it doesn't work for me, as we don't have zip codes but postal codes and it doesn't recognize it. They also won't let you fill it first without leaving your credit card inside as security, which was a bit of a pain and not something I'd encountered before.
However, one station I stopped at and had the problem, I started to walk to the store but this guy was checking things out and he just said, "that's okay I see your from Canada, just go back to the pump and I'll active it and you can pay after".

I wouldn't bitch about the card people... Free Money is Free Money...

Their reimbursing at a little more then $0.0083 / mile...

So if you own your car for 100,000 miles... You will have received about $830 in FREE MONEY...

Its money that you are going to spend somewhere... If you don't wanna keep track of whats on the card then use if for BIG Purchases and use it all at once...

I drive between 20,000-21,000 miles a year and I plan to drive my Rio until its DEAD... Which now a days a car can go well past 200,000 miles if taken care of...

I change my oil every 5,000 miles religiously and add an Oil Treatment and Fuel Injector Cleaner at EVERY Oil Change...

I plan on taking back as much money from Kia as possible... Who knows... Hang onto the car for 65 years (I know its not possible given the milage I drive) and Kia will have paid for the car!!!

[If your trying to do the math... ROUGHLY 1,800,000 miles = $15,000]

Not sure how you came up with that. I took mine in with about 7000 km (about 4300 miles) on it and got just over $50.00 back.

I had a little over 23k miles and received $190 and change, so it's about right.

My assumption is that your $50 is Canadian Dollars... In your case you are making $0.01/mile so at 100, 000 miles you would have $1, 000 Canadian Dollars...

They are reimbursing based on gas price in your areas. I am in the "cheaper" areas for gas so my rate is a little lower.

It wasn't ment to be exact numbers just a ball park figure.

Hmmmm.....coulda swore your post said $8.30, not $830, hence my question of your numbers. Sometimes I drink.

Just got my card. It took 6.5 weeks since the dealer verified my miles. For 11,194 miles they gave me $87.56. That works out to 0.78 cents per mile. I averaged 34mpg, this reimbursement compensates me to an adjusted ~36.8mpg. I'm pretty happy with that.

They make a big deal about saying "Enjoy $87.56 on us!" like it's some wonderful gift. This isn't FREE MONEY, it's reimbursement. That means that it is owed to us. It doesn't matter that they are doing it with no mandate or judgement against them, this saves them the legal costs of a huge class action.

They should say "Here is the $87.56 that we owe you!"

I sure am glad I love this little car, lol...

"This isn't FREE MONEY"

It is if you're getting the posted mileage.

I apologize if this is old information but I contacted The customer service line to find out how often i could "reload" my debit card. They told me that once the first round of cards are issued which should be in the next few weeks , they will be sending emails with information as to how to get new payments. They said that they do not believe there will be any restrictions on frequency of reload and they also said that the cards will not be reloaded but a new card will be issues each time.

Seems pricey to me to generate new cards each time.

I for one plan to hold on to my card until I get a new one.

If I am not mistaken the cards have an expiration date, we have to use the card within one year. That's at least they way it is in the US. So how would you reload the card if it is already expired?
I would assume that with each "reload" we would get new cards.
