You then have to re-swipe your card and continue to fuel. The pump automatically shuts off at $75.The sign states that is the policy of Visa, not Speedway. It doesn't say anything about AMEX or Discover though.

In our area, some request the zip code and some don't. So I assume from this that it's up to the gas station, or franchise, or brand, etc.
