Gas Buddy now has a free card that works like the TDS card, link it to your bank account, works at pretty much every gas station, so you don't have to use the truck stops with the inflated prices. Discounts vary from place to place, not always as much as TDS, but nor is the base price. Just got my card, got 12c off per gallon for gas. Will be taking it on our next trip to Utah from Missouri next week, been comparing both for prices along the trip route. Gas Buddy comes out slightly ahead, but some of their better prices are off the freeway, no knowing how a 43' coach would be able to maneuver in their forecourts! Still, a good plan B.

Dang, wish I had seen this before this trip to AZ.
I like the TDS card for the bus as the TA truck stops are normally on our route. But Unleaded here is actually higher than Diesel. U 3.18 - D 3.05
And Phoenix is 45 min to Phoenix as all big cities are, seems I use a 1/4 tank a day.

Ok. I find that I have 2 locations on my phone. One is the EFS control card. The other is TSD logistics.

Which one?

Stick, I is called EFS Card Control. It should pop up with your card number and then you have to enter your PIN or use your fingerprint to open it. When you open it it will go to your activity page first. Up in the tip left corner you will see three lines, tap that and it will have a drop down and tap Price Locator. That will give you the best prices in your area. Just like any map on the web you can drag your finger and move to a location of your choice and get prices all along you route if you want. With some work you will figure it out.

That’s what I’m doing, but the map won’t drag. I am unable to trace a route

Not sure I know what to tell you Stick. I just tried it again on my phone and I placed my finger on the map and drug the map to another location. Once you do that you have to tap the magnifying glass and it will then search for fuel prices in that location, you have drug to. It works for me. I'll show you when we get to WOG if you haven't figured it out by then.

TSD logistics released their own app called " TSD Open Roads". It fixes many of the bugs with the EFS control card app.

On my phone it is labeled "fuel card".

The TSD Open Roads app is the one you need to use to find TSD locations and prices. The EFS card Control does list locations and prices where there is no TSD discount.

The EFS app I'm using shows the discounted prices. So i'm not sure what you are talking about It shows both non discounted and discounted on what I see. The regular price shows up in black and the discounted prices show up in green.

EFS is showing me the discounted prices also, I just loaded Open Roads. I couldn’t get my card to work on open roads but for some reason EFS was showing me better prices, maybe it because my card wasn’t loaded on open roads.
