How to Register in the Program
You can get Mr Gas Cash Plus card at any participating Mr Gas Limited station by requesting one from our station personnel.

Once activated, Mr Gas CASH PLUS rewards will begin to accrue to that specific card. However, a cardholder will not be able to redeem Mr Gas CASH PLUS rewards until the cardholder registers the card online.
The Mr Gas CASH PLUS Card is not a credit card or debit card but merely a Mr Gas CASH PLUS rewards accumulation card. The Mr Gas CASH PLUS Card is the property of Mr Gas Limited and it may be revoked at any time by Mr Gas Limited in its sole discretion. Mr Gas Limited reserves the right to cancel the card of any member (revoking all accumulated cash rewards) should a participant not follow/or abuses the Program and/or its Terms and Conditions.
