Not true at the one in East Texas. Alway Right with walmart, maybe a penny or so either way.

I fuel at Maverik when I am in state, when I am on the road I try to get off the freeway in some town.
I have found it to be cheaper most of the time.

I just checked diesel prices in Tyler. Lots of stations at 3.69. Pilot is 3.85.

I have seen them a little higher than the cheapest places but often times the cheaper places are Walmart or a convenience store with tight access. Flying j usually has more room to maneuver. Its a trade off.

We travel quite extensively, (14,000 miles to date) and most truck stop (major chains) are within a few pennies of each other.

The issue I see with the Wal-Marts & small fuel stops is the diesel sits and collects water.

for our diesel friends, beware of the small fuel stops. high turnover is what you want, not a few cents saved (unless you really enjoy changing fuel filters). not saying it will happen, but the likelyhood is greater you will.

Now I do have to walk in, but I need the exercise so it's not an issue.

Yep that's what I do also.

Yep pilot is great easy in and out. I agree with someone who said you want the higher turn over of diesel then the smaller stations. Also the smaller stations are hard to get in and out with 35 feet of trailer. Pilot is well worth it.

I just got this card also and got a $2500 limit because I linked it to my checking account. Anyone have any problems doing it that way?

If you do not want the net30 charge account, you can activate pump start on the RV card. The discount is not as good, but you can pull up to a truck island swipe the RV card and pump fuel. Then go in after fueling and pay with a CC. I carry both and try to plan my trips to avoid fueling up in states with higher prices.

I agree with the higher turnover stations. While limited, I have had minor fuel issues with lower volume stations in both my truck and my old pusher. Mostly just dirty fuel that clogged my filters.
