In many cases, you may be charged more than once where you have had to pre-authorise additional transactions. This may be because the bowser timed-out before you dispensed your fuel. When a timed-out fuel transaction occurs, Fuelcharge immediately instructs your bank to release its hold on the pre-authorised funds. Upon the bank releasing its hold, these funds will be available to you and the hold will not appear on your bank statement.
