I used my debit card for years and never got bit. But now I strictly use the CC unless I need to grab cash from an ATM. Credit card as said above is 45 days free money, I never pay interest either and pay it off every month. On a big trip I usually also keep a couple hundred in cash just in case. But for diesel it's always the CC. I have a Cabelas Visa and it buys more camping stuff. I did pay cash for the trailer though.

I use a credit card that gives cash back. I have an OBD2 reader connected and use the Torque app to monitor my RV. One of the monitoring points is % until empty. I use that and figure out how much I need to fill the 55 gallon tank. Multiply that by the price per gallon (minus any discounts like Flying J) and that's what i tell the cashier to put on the card. I never loose site of the card and have a receipt to match to the online transaction statement.

My 2 cents

Paying for gas

Always with a bank credit card other than Costco ( which is always the cheapest gas in town)... Then I use debit.

The HOLD only applies to DEBIT cards. Not CREDIT cards. If your account is being held for CC purchases, something is wrong. Contact your bank...

I never use it as a debit at a pump. That explains it for me.

Same for me. I use my debit/credit and always put it as credit.
I see those signs on every pump about a hold being put on it, but in several years, I have never actually seen one.

Since my debit/credit is Mastercard, I have the same protection as any Mastercard against unauthorized charges.
Been RV'ing for the last 20 years, never had a problem.
