How will RFID technology play its role in gas stations?

With the widespread popularity of cars, the operating load of gas stations has been rising. The management of gas stations is very important, and how to make the working efficiency of gas stations more efficient has been a constant exploration and concern. RFID application technology has many advantages such as non-contact, fast identification, adjustable working distance, accurate collection and good environmental adaptability, which effectively improves the data entry method and improves the operating efficiency of gas stations. How will RFID play its role in gas stations?


The RFID reader is installed on the gas station to realize data communication with the gas station. The reader is connected to the network through TCP/IP or RS485 bus (or other data bus), and can also communicate and network through wireless transmission network. It is connected to the management computer placed in the gas station business hall through the gas station data concentrator, and the RFID gas station information management system software is installed on the management computer. The system software can realize the automatic refueling function. For each refueling, the card can be used to complete it. The system identifies the vehicles entering the gas station, and the vehicles matching the gas card have the right to refuel. One car and one card are used for refueling. The matching is basically one-to-one, but one-to-many or designated single card refueling is allowed through permission management.

An RFID electronic tag is installed on the motor vehicle. When the motor vehicle enters the gas station, it is identified by the reader installed next to the gas station. The electronic tag information read by the RFID reader is sent to the back-end control room of the gas station. The control room authorizes the electronic tag for refueling and adds it to the system database, which stores the license plate number, driver information, entry time, card balance, pre-fueling amount and other related information of the refueling motor vehicle. The gas station uses wireless mode to connect to the computer. Once the vehicle-mounted tag is authorized, the system can send a refueling amount data to the gas station through wireless mode. After confirmation, the gas station can perform the refueling operation. The system transmits the detailed information of the motor vehicle in the form of a list to the PCU system in the gas station for display.


RFID refueling machine has many functional features such as reliable storage, display and automatic collection of business data:

Features of RFID refueling

According to the quantitative liters and amount, non-quantified refueling, etc., it can automatically calculate and accurately bill.

Tax control function

The encoder in the refueling machine should be able to correctly generate pulse signals, and the metering microprocessor transmits the metering data to the monitoring microprocessor truthfully, reliably and safely. The data monitoring is processed by the microprocessor and stored in the tax control memory and sent to the display screen of the refueling machine at the same time. When the above functions cannot be completed, the refueling machine should be automatically locked, that is, refueling cannot be performed. It can correctly generate, fully save and safely transmit tax data such as the amount of oil, amount, and tax payable for each refueling. It can also print invoices according to the requirements of the tax department, and automatically generate and print tax report materials.

Storage function features

The electronic tags distributed by the RFID refueling machine can read and write business data 10,000 times, and the data can be saved for 10 years. The data storage format can use encryption technology. It has extremely strong confidentiality and security to prevent people from purposefully using technical means to tamper with data. If the electronic tag is illegally operated several times, the electronic tag will be automatically locked.

Anti-fraud function features

The monitoring microprocessor in the metering and control motherboard should be mutually verified with the encoder. When the mutual verification fails, the fuel dispenser should not work. The metering and control motherboard should be designed with a reliable sealing mechanism to prevent the metering and control motherboard from being replaced at will.

Control function features

It can realize comprehensive monitoring and modern management of various aspects such as electronic tag refueling, oil and gas recovery, taxation, metering technology supervision, and consumer service industry management, and accelerate the process of information management.

Gas stations are widely distributed and the large number brings some difficulties to related management. Relying on phased and temporary surprise rectification of gas stations, it is impossible to continuously and stably improve the management of gas stations and improve the management level of gas stations. The application and implementation of RFID technology ensures the legality of refueling vehicles, improves the level of oil management, and can eliminate oil loopholes to a large extent.
