Petrol station near Pisa airport that takes credit cards

We arrived at the airport about 1pm on Saturday. I had read posts about the problems returning hire cars with the tank full so was ready for the difficulties.

The last petrol station on the superstrada and the one at the airport were unattended and neither accepted credit cards... cash notes only to be paid before drawing fuel.

With a bit of time on our hands I decided to try and find a place that was either attended or took credit cards. After trying half a dozen I found none that were attended but this one took credit cards:

Gestione Servizi Italia Q8

16 via Conte Fazio

Pisa

The road runs parallel and just South of the Arno, about a mile from the airport. There's several petrol stations on this road. The Q8 one is on the North side of the road immediately East of the railway bridge. You can see it on Google street view... search Google maps for Servizi & Gestioni Conte Fazio (don't ask me why Gestione/Gestioni has different spellings).

Only slight niggle was that the credit card only got authorised for €69 so having taken this fuel I had to put the card back in for a second transaction for the extra €8 of fuel to fill the tank.

In fact, Q8 is the ONLY company that takes credit cards at all its unattended, self-serve stations at all times.

All other companies' stations only take cash or Italian ATM cards ('bancomat') when stations are unattended.

On the other hand, probably close to 100% service stations take credit cards when attended.

I don't think so. I use my cc everywhere in Pisa.

#2 read well my post - I was talking of unattended stastions when only the prepaid, self-serve mode is active.

I know full well that you can use credit cards when the attendant is there.
