How do Fuel Cards work?

Fuel cards aggregate all payments across your fleet for petrol and/or diesel, as well as lubricants and AdBlue®. You’ll have one VAT-approved invoice, a single direct debit to pay and every fuel bill held in one place for HMRC. Whether you are looking for the best fuel card for a small business or want the most UK fuel card locations for your fleet, Watson fuel's card services have you covered.

Why use Fuel Cards?

Our range of fuel cards make staying on top of your fuel spend simple. Manage costs across your fleet, minimise admin time and save on fuel.

Save time

Fuel cards aggregate all payments across your fleet for petrol and/or diesel, lubricants, and AdBlue®. You’ll have: 

  • 1 VAT-approved invoice
  • 1 direct debit for payments
  • All in 1 place for HMRC

Get peace of mind

Most fuel cards allow you to specify exactly what can be purchased — and not purchased — from shop items to fuel and lubricant types. You can also set detailed restrictions and strict spending limits.


Reduce fuel cost

Whether you opt for wholesale or pump prices, a fuel card can give you access to lower rates. At Watson, we keep our pricing fair and reliable by ensuring we’re consistent with the market.



Get a complete picture of your fuel spend

With all your fuel spending centrally recorded, you can monitor fuel activity and miles per gallon on vehicles and drivers, drill down into transactions and take a view on what improvements can be made. This helps in assessing buying patterns, cost centre purchasing and fuel economy.

A bulk transfer is a transfer of stock directly into your Keyfuels or UK Fuels bunkering account, giving you the simplicity of purchasing fuel in bulk with the flexibility to draw that fuel from over 2,000 filling stations nationwide.
