    Asda filling stations are blocking their own Asda credit card, so it would appear that banking limits have little to do with it.
    My card has no balance on it, so it has nothing to with card limits either.
    Seems to be more to do with incompetence!

    It may be to do with scamming - you can get a lot of fuel if you can go from site to site with a card and only be billed 1 a time for the credit limit test. We've had fuel thefts locally where they put containers in boot and back seat and pick up 250 of fuel across 3 local stations in drive offs. Less risk with a stolen card and pay at pump.

    I've never understood why there isn't an option to prepay a set amount before filling. This would remove the potential for overspending and also stop people driving off without paying?
