My EQ FICO on here is 646, but I just got a denial letter for a Valero credit card and it says my EQ score is 578. I was really suprised when I saw such a huge difference. Is the EQ score that myFICO provides not the actual EQ score that lenders use?

What were the ranges of the score? It could have been a proprietary score, or a credit card enhanced score.

Most people i've seen that have posted indicated that their Equifax score from myFICO matched perfectly to what the lender pulled. That was the case of my wife and myself as well...it's the same score. But those were for mortgages. You're trying to get an auto loan so i'm guessing you got a type of score that shogun is suggesting in the post above.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
