Have a friend who is a Costco member buy you a Costco Cash Card and fill up at the Costco gas bar without a membership

The gas station is open to Costco members only, with one exception: Costco Cash Card holders do not need to be members

also Cash Card can be used in store twice a year
* Non-member use
You do not have to be a Costco member to use a Costco Cash Card, but non-members must register for a one-day shopping pass at the Membership Counter to access the warehouse. Non-members may only be issued a one-day pass twice per calendar year and the one-day pass may not be used as a replacement for a Costco membership. Non-members may not carry a balance on the card. If they do not spend the full amount of the card, the balance will be refunded at the cash register. If the value of a non-member purchase exceeds the value of the cash card, the excess can only be paid by cash, debit or MasterCard.

You must be a Costco member to purchase Costco Cash Cards (online or at the warehouse). Reloads are only available at a Costco location. Members and non-members* may use the Costco Cash Cards to shop at any Costco location in Canada and online on Costco.ca. Costco Cash Cards may be used toward membership or merchandise.

Even as a Costco member, waiting in those ridiculous border-like lines isn't worth saving ~5c/litre.

Good to know, but only a member can buy the cash card so you may want to specify that in the OP.

In Montreal, it's usually 10 to 15 c/litre of saving, so kind of worth it

When price of premium at Costco is the same as regular elsewhere, the savings our substantial!
Go early, or later in the evening and you won't be stuck waiting...at least that's my experience here in Ottawa.

gas lines are big enough, if you're not a member, please stay out of our gas lines.

you can usually get gas cheaper at other stores plus the added rewards programs from other stores.

Not all gas stations are lined up, at least for suburb stores. I always go there weekday evenings and never waited more than 5 mins. A trip to Costco on weekend is a hell ride.

You can't get sale prices when you pay with cash card though; they'll charge you full price.
