That's the reason for the different colors.

No tax on the agricultural diesel

Diesel is at nearly every fuel stop here, (Louisiana) including many Walmarts and convenience stores.

Thanks Everyone

It sounded like a dumb question when I typed it, but I had to ask... I was starting to believe the guys up the street that I was talking to.. Now I have the evidence to put their concerns in the dumpster..

Thanks again everyone..

No...no problem at all and we've been about everywhere in the SE. One word of advice: Install "Gas Buddy" on your phone and set it to show Diesel when traveling. You are never far from a station selling diesel.

Anyone can use the truck lanes without a fleet card. You note the lane/pump number, go inside to the cashier, authorize an amount on your card, go pump, and the card is only charged for what you pump. Pull up to the next (wait) line and go inside to pick up your final receipt. Easy.

No problem in Arkansas, Texas, or Louisiana that I have personal knowledge of, and haven't heard of problems anywhere else. Diesel is plentiful and available everywhere in the US.

Yes sir. And I have. But in many of those stations, the truck lane allowed a 'pay at the pump' card........but NOT a regular credit card. Had to be a Fleet Card of some time. It was that situation I am trying to figure out. Waiting in line is one thing. But to keep from going in is another. In one spot in Georgia, the pumps were about a 1/4 mile from the store.....literally.

Sounds like I'm whining about walking but we had a 7 year old and it made it harder.

Just something I am exploring, trying to make it easier.

I travel R95 from south FL to VA and a bit further and have always been able to find diesel, although a few stations do not have it. My challenge is finding the diesel stop where I can maneuver the 40' FW.

Avoid Love's if you do not like pre pay. Pilot and Flying J take Visa at the pump. No receipts most of the time. Take a photo of pump $$ as your record.

Keep on roll'n 👍
