Default Low Fuel Price

Just a note to my Blue Bird friends with diesel pusher motor homes. We found diesel fuel yesterday at Exit 15 on I-12 just East of Baton Rouge in Walker, LA for $2.07/gal. We found those stations using the Gas Buddy app. They were apparently having some kind of price war because at other exits we were passing it was between $2.39 and $2.60/gal. The $2.07 prices were at a "Hit and Run" Chevron station and a Circle K just North of the Interstate. They were a little tight, but we got in and out pulling the car. So if you are going through there, check it out,

Using the TSD card I just paid $1.66/gallon at Loves in Ozark, Alabama. Kinda glad I hadn't filled the tank since WOG (yeah I know).

Pump price: $2.44/gallon
Pump total: $300.05 for 122.5 gallons

TSD price: $1.66/gallon
TSD total: $203.46
TSD discount: $96.54

I filled up yesterday at Loves in Charleston, Tennessee, I-75 Exit 33 @ $1.51 gal with TSD card.. the advertised price was $2.49... Never thought I would pay less than $2 a gallon for diesel fuel. I filled up again I-75 Exit 314 in Bushnell, Florida to top up the tank. Price was $1.87 gal with TSD card, advertised price was $2.58 gal.

This afternoon paid 1.38 g at the Loves on I-10 20mm Tx. Not sure if we are doing this correctly but here is how we do it . Erika checks the app for the stopes along the way , I then determine when I need some fuel . So we pull up to the pump insert card answer the 4 or 5 questions and then we pump . I then take a picture of the pump price and compare it to the email receipt 2 days later . Doing it this way avoids going into the store . I take the picture to confirm gallons and pump price.. I used to hunt out cheap fuel in the past and over the years it was getting harder and harder to find them . Now it is a breeze with Loves everywhere and a good heads up provided by Billboards. I wont need more fuel till the other side of Az, but will be sure to fill up there cause in Ca the cost is a little over 2.00 g lol imagine complaining about 2.00@ gallon .

I can not believe my friend Lee Davis does not have a EFS card from TSD. You just lost your status as the “KING of WOG CHEAPSKATES “

The loss of that status is a big penalty. Hasn't he been penalized enough by paying an extra 70 cents per gallon for fuel? Just think if he had the 300 gallon tank!!!
