- Note: When paying with a bank card, a certain standard amount of € 100-150 is first reserved as a deposit (pre-authorization) to check whether the balance is sufficient for a full tank. Usually the amount that has been refueled, debited and the rest of the money released within 20 minutes, but sometimes it can also take a few days to two weeks before the reserved amount can be used again.
- In Austria, fuel prices may only be increased once a day at noon (price reductions are always possible) and therefore refueling is the cheapest just before noon.
