No hassle fueling!!!

For those that may not know...... Pilot/Flying J offers a fuel CHARGE card similar to other gas charge (the ones we used years ago). It is NOT a credit card; you have to pay in full each month.

HOWEVER, you can pull up to the truck islands, stick in your card, enter your pin number, pump your fuel and never go inside at all; unless you want to.

This is WONDERFUL!! I have a $1000 limit on mine, but I'll bet they bump that once they find out I pay my bill ON time, EVERY time.

Oh, and there is no "fee" to get one from P/FJ. For security, you can change your pin online as often as you wish. Neat, cause if you're worried about someone scamming your pin, just go online and change it after every fuel up.

I'm going to check an see if Loves offers something similar.

We've been using ours for months now and LOVE IT. No more double swipes because of the limit, nor is there any issue with acceptance (we are from Canada). We did increase the limit to 2k after a few months of use. Largely because of an upcoming visit to Florida this Dec.

Works great, and you do not have to use the truck lane. All pumps at the Flying J and Pilot stations take the cards and give the discount. Gas or diesel. But, if you search the web you'll see there is some pending litigation against them about the cards. Just so you can keep up with it.

I get 2% back on my CC so that works out to about 8 a gallon plus I use the Pilot RV myRewards fuel card and it gives me 3 at the pump for diesel. Using the combination I get about 11 off per gallon.

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

Maverik Stations/Stores has a card that will automatically give you $0.02 off, and another "Black" card that will give you $0.06 off the posted price per gallon. The $0.06 card requires you to agree to let them deduct the purchase directly from you bank account. We have used this "Black" card for several months now, and it does work quite well. I was skeptical at first, fearing possible security issues, but all transaction have been right on the money with no glitches. Even when we were traveling we gassed up at Maverik when ever we could. Seemed they always had the better prices. Just yesterday I gassed up for $3.33 a gallon for regular unleaded.

For me its not the discount, its the lack of hassle buying diesel fuel at the truck pumps. You dont have to go inside and have an amount authorized before you can pump. After pumping you would have to go back inside for a receipt and in some cases to get your credit card back. Not anymore, I love it.

I love the truck pumps, high canopies and easy in and easy out.

From what I've seen, you're paying a considerably higher price for gas/diesel at Pilot than at other stations in the same town (even counting any discounts). Be an informed shopper. Use Gas Buddy.

truck pumps are also high speed. keep an ear out for the fill tube backing up so you dont splash it all over yourself/truck
