ARAL FUEL CARD - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Why has the Fuel Card being introduced?

We are continually looking at how we can improve the way in which we deliver services to the BFG population as we reduce in size during Drawdown. This card provides easier access to cheaper fuel because there are less printing, handling and administrative costs.

Entitled personnel wishing to buy tax-free fuel for their vehicle will need an Aral FuelCard.

Aral FuelCard Online Application Forms

If you are applying for your ARAL card in advance, ensure that the vehicle registration number you have, or are given, will be accepted by the BFG 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 BFG office first.

Please read the Application Guide before completing the form. From the 1st Jan 2018 a one off administration fee of €50 will be introduced for all new Aral FuelCards.

Excerpt: SOBFG 3213, Section 10 - 1003

BFG Fuel Cards 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 BFG registration is not “in date” or does not have a valid roadworthiness or light test stamp (if applicable) on BFG Form 73.  Only persons whose names are recorded on the card may purchase fuel using the card from ARAL forecourts.  The BFG Fuel Card 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.  BFG Fuel Cards 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/BFG ID card.  The improper use of BFG Fuel Cards will normally result in the withdrawal of the appropriate BFG facilities from the offender, in addition to any disciplinary action that may be taken.
