Decoding a Bank Transaction Name

Hey guys, I have been using Mint.com for a while but every so often there's a reported transaction that neither the bank nor Mint can categorize. Here's an example:

CHECKCARD 1002 GRAPEVINE MILL00808782 GRAPEVINE TX 24164070276814252744699 on 10/04/10

It's for $32 and I'm pretty sure it's a gas station on my way to work. The problem is, I can't be sure... How can I go about deducing what this all means?

    Yup, gas station. I googled MILL00808782 and that's what turned up. In general, gas stations that have trucker stops charge like that. I got one on my way to NYC that I couldn't figure out because it looked like that.

    Hmm.. unless gas prices went down over the last 12 hours, it's about a week and a half out of date for my area.

    I'd like to believe it, but GasBuddy disagrees. Maybe it's fleet prices with their card?

    GlobalFleet says $4.26, GasBuddy says $4.39 for the station next to me, which I think is still lower than yesterday.
