Understanding Fuel Settings

To get to fuel settings, simply click on Gas -> Settings

The first think you will notice on the top is the Gas type (i.e. Ownership gas or Agent Gas (commission based)). If you would like to change this, click on the store settings icon from the main menu and then configure your store option. Next you will notice 3 tabs:

Basic Tank settings:

This section allows you to setup basic information. The first option allows you to specify if your midgrade fuel (plus fuel) is a blend of regular and super or a separate tank (i.e. when you get your fuel load, does the jobber also deliver a plus load?). 

Next, if the Mid grade is blended, its asks you to specify a blend ratio (how much of it is Regular grade and how much is Super). Here, if your ratio is 65% regular and 35% Super, you want to put a value of "0.65. 

The system also asks you to specify if you sell diesel or not as well as if you have a separate price for cash sales and credit card sales (Note: this setting is set to yes, it will allow you to send both cash and credit prices to your register when making fuel price changes). 

If you wish to receive confirmation emails when gas price changes are sent to register from CStorePro, you can specify the email address in the Confirmation emal for gas price changes field.

Lastly, in this section you will see all your fuel grades and here you can specify the tank size, the tax rate (include state and local) as well as the register ID for day report mappings (Note: if you have more than one 1 for a particular grade separate the ID's with a comma). 

Additional Tank settings:

Many states in the north will have upto 10 fuel grades (i.e. Winter diesel, E-10, E-85, regular fuel, etc). If you have additional gas grades or tanks, you can add up to 8 additional grades here. To activate additional tanks simply set is preset field to Yes. 

Similar to the default tanks, you can specify the tank size, the tax rate (include state and local) as well as the register ID for day report mappings (Note: if you have more than one 1 for a particular grade separate the ID's with a comma). 

Note: If you are adding additional tanks you will need to also follow these instructions here

Settlement settings:

In this tab, you can update the settlement settings such as how you pay the jobber (i.e. Fuel supplier) and if its EFT draft, which bank account its being drafted from. Furthermore, you can also update the credit card settlements here as well. 

If you are a branded store, most likely your credit cards are settled in a jobber invoice. If you are an unbranded store, they are mostly settled in your bank account.
