I have found the big travel truck stops are always way higher than the local, just have to make sure you can get your rig in.

Unless I just get so low on fuel I have to stop at Pilot or Flying J I don't waste my time looking for them. Gas Buddy has never shown them to be anywhere near the lower end of prices.

I've not "Birded" near as long as many of you guys, but I still can't find myself comfortable with finding and maneuvering around unknown locations trying to find cheaper fuel. Based on 10k miles per year, at my MPG, even if I saved as much as .07 cents a gallon I would only save a bit over $100 per year. I know $100 is $100, but considering the overall annual cost of this beast it is minor; and I find Flying Js and Loves to be real handy, easy enough to get around to prevent fender benders, have trustworthy fuel, doesn't have card limit hassles, handy for propane, etc. (No, I don't own stock in either of them. Maybe I should!)

Sam's Club (not Good Sam's) MasterCard gives a 5% discount on fuel at any station. 3% on food and lodging and 1% on everything else. They pay it twice a year.

I agree with Rick. The trouble and risk of fueling at the cheapest is not worth it to me. I have been in some tight spots, have to leave your card or cash to get the pump turned on, wonder it you are going to be able to get out ect. I have had to disconnect towed, use different cards to get more than $100. A hundred gallons at 10 cents is $10. Even $20 is cheap for the convenience of easy access, Pump turns on with card, don't even have to go inside. Our Loves plan of 10 cents off cash works for me. May not always be the cheapest, but often is.

I buy all my fuel for the truck at flying J i usually use about 2600.00 a month
yes it is expensive But I trade that off for the convenience

For the BMC We use the profit tools Discount that anyone is entitled to use all you have to do is sign up this discount plan brings the price of fule down to an almost bearable cost

I can't honestly say that isn't something to think about. I have pulled into Murphy's and some other places a couple of times and had to unhook the towed. It can be a PIA. Sometimes it really doesn't pay go for the lower price if you think about it. Thanks guys for reminding me to let some of the moths out of my wallet.

I use the J most of the time trucking. It used to be the lowest price major chain out there. When Pilot bought it, they raised the fuel price up to the level of the others.

With the truck, it has everything I need. In the BB, I do not need as many services, like showers, etc., but, at least for now, I burn so little fuel in the BB, it is still worth it.

Hopefully in a few years, I will be burning a LOT more fuel in it!

I use the RV Frequent Fueler card. I believe it is 8 cents off regular price.

I use the Truck Frequent Fueler card when trucking. It earns showers, that the RV card does not.
