I forgot to post up about a little discovery I made at the end of my Adirondacks trip. If you are a Canadian gassing up at a pump in the USA then you know the pump often prompts you for your postal code to use your credit card. The pump only accepts 5 digit American postal codes. So you may end up having to go in to the station to leave your card with the attendant or prepay with cash. I can never do the mental gymnastics required to estimate the gallons I might need or the predicted cost in USD so it can a bit frustrating. I just want to gas up and go. Anyway the trick is to take the three numbers from your Canadian postal code and add two zeros to the end. This should work most times. A young dude at an Irving in Maine gave me a card explaining it in English and French. Example: A1A 5H2 becomes 15200 at the pump. Happy travels.
