FROM WEEKEND trips to cross-province
or cross-country travel, summer is the
ideal time to get behind the wheel and set
out for parts unknown. One essential item
to pack is your Capital One®* Mastercard®†,
exclusively for Costco members, so you’re
ready to keep your car fuelled up. Filling
up at Costco will help keep money in your
wallet by offering the best price on gas,
keep your engine running smoothly and
minimize your time at the pump so you’ll
have more time for fun.
Costco gas stations’ efficiencies help
you fill up and get back on the road fast.
• Mastercard Tap & Go™ is the quick-
est way to pay at Costco gas stations.
Simply tap your Capital One Costco
Mastercard on the contactless terminal at
the gas pump and you’re done. There’s no
need to swipe your membership card and a
credit card. The entire transaction takes
only a few seconds. Nothing could be sim-
pler or faster. Plus, you earn cash back
every time you use your card.
• Our stations are designed for fast
refuelling, with long hoses that allow you
to fill from either side of your vehicle.
• Costco gas pumps are always running at optimal performance, which also
speeds up the process, saving members
• The Costco app indicates which
warehouses sell gas. Select “Warehouses”
to see details about nearby warehouses,
including which locations have gas stations. Most stations are located in the
warehouse’s parking lot.

While Costco members can save time
at the pumps when they fill up at Costco,
they’re also helping to take care of their
vehicles. Costco’s Kirkland Signature™ gas
The ease and
benefits of getting
gas at Costco
contains five times the deposit control
additive required by the Canadian General
Standards Board to keep engines clean.
“Clean intake valves and injectors help
keep your car running like new, with fewer
emissions and better performance,” Jean
Lauzon, Costco’s general manager of gasoline, tells The Connection.
Costco gas stations offer members
great value on high-quality fuel. Kirkland
Signature gas meets or exceeds all Top
Tier™ Detergent Gasoline standards while
maintaining the low prices members
expect from Costco. (For more information
about Top Tier gas, visit toptiergas.com.)
Costco sets itself apart by staffing each
gas station with trained employees. Each
safety-vested employee is trained on emergency procedures, member service and
pump operation. Lauzon explains that the
employees at the gas station are also there
to assist with spill cleanup, maintain
equipment, schedule filter changes,
observe safe fuel tanker deliveries and
make sure everything runs smoothly.
“Costco stations are well maintained
and feature the very latest technology for
protecting our members and the environment,” adds Lauzon.
If efficiency and value are important
to you this summer, along with keeping
your car in good running order, keep
Costco in mind when planning your summer escapes. C
