I went to the Pacific Pride web site and it says commercial fueling only. Since you established an account does that mean they'll take casual users/RVs also?

I am not commercial. I had no issue setting up an account. I did not do mine online, I went through a local fuel distributor ( Wilcox and Flegel ) who owns the PP and CFN stations nearby me. I walked into their office and took care of it in person.


One thing many people don't like is that the price is not published and you just get a bill every two weeks. Diesel is almost always cheaper than what I see posted. Gasoline is about the same. I quit worrying about the price per gallon as it's never been significant to worry about in comparison to Costco and the convenience makes it nice. When diesel was at it's high point I was saving .25-.30 cent a gallon at CFN.


EDIT:


I just did a little bit of research. My cards are Wilcox and Flegel branded cards now. It seems that each fuel distributor has the ability to set up a non-commercial account without minimums at their discretion. The information on the card direct from PP seems to want you to be a commercial account. Since your in Washington I'd contact Wilcox in Longview and have them setup your account.

I dealt with trying to fill up while towing for exactly 4 months. After running on fumes once, I researched and purchased a 37 gallon auxiliary tank that goes in the bed of the truck and gravity feeds to the main tank. This setup allows me to tow a full 8 hours and still have half a tank left. I then disconnect and go find someplace to fill up. Haven't worried about it since.

Thanks for the info Rusty. I don't really care about cost either. I just want to be able to fuel while towing without unhooking. I just want to be able to fuel without having to back out or worry about tail swing. Just made a cross country and the biggest pain we had was finding a convenient store where the pumps weren't pointing at the store. Even the turnpikes with express fuel stops are set up this way. Arrrggggghhhh!

Just got an email back from CFN and they do commercial only. I go by Longview fairly often as the kids live east of Portland so I'll stop by Wilcox and Flegel and see what they say.

We get discount at Pilot and Flying J and use their RV lanes, but otherwise the truck lanes.

How do you manage discounts at Pilot and Flying J?

Good Sam membership gives you a discount off fuel at these pumps.

Can anyone join these, even if we don't have a business or fleet? If so, are there any yearly cost for the membership?

I use truck lanes all the time. Much easier to navigate and I can fill my DEF tank a lot cheaper than buying it in a container. About a dollar less a gallon.

Used the truck lanes only on a recent 3000 mile trip and had no problems whatsoever. In fact every one of the truckers we encountered was great, greeting us, talking to the dogs, etc. I think the key is to respect their space and get in and out as quickly as possible.
