Planned Maintenance/Downtime of Aral FuelCard for 2024.

Periodically, Aral must conduct maintenance on their Server which will lead to an interruption of functionality with the Aral FuelCard. This will take place between 0600-1300hrs on the following dates:

  • 25.02.2024
  • 09.06.2024
  • 01.09.2024
  • 17.11.2024

Please note: Aral Fuelcards should not be used during these periods and applications for refunds will be rejected.

If you are applying for your Aral FuelCard in advance, ensure that the vehicle registration number you have, or are given, will be accepted by the vehicle licencing office (VLO) and will not need to change.

Once an application is made for a FuelCard, any previous card issued to the registration number on the application form will be cancelled and cannot be used.

If in doubt ask your local office first.

Please read the Application Guide before completing the form. There is a one off administration fee of €50 for all new Aral FuelCards.

Excerpt: FSO(G) 1001, Section 8

Aral FuelCards are not to be used for any purpose other than that for which they are issued, that is to say, to access the Tax-Free ration of fuel for the vehicle shown on the card. Cards are not to be used for vehicles where the VLO registration is not “in date” or does not have a valid roadworthiness or light test stamp (if applicable) on Form 73. 

Only persons whose names are recorded on the card may purchase fuel using the card from ARAL forecourts.  The Aral FuelCard is not transferrable, it is used on behalf of a specific vehicle and only by those named on the card. The ration will be cancelled on de-registration/disposal of the vehicle. 

Aral FuelCards are not to be used in the pursuance of any business venture, nor are they to be used as a means of accessing any other Tax-Free goods or services; they are to be used to access Tax-Free fuel for private motoring only. 

Before presentation at the ARAL service station, card bearers are to ensure that their name appears on the card allocated to that vehicle and that they are in possession of an authorised valid Service/SOFA ID card. 

The improper use of Aral FuelCards will normally result in the withdrawal of the appropriate SOFA Entitlement from the offender, in addition to any disciplinary action that may be taken. 

It is the card holder’s responsibility to ensure that the card is in date before use, there will be no refunds for out of date cards.
