Gas Card

Okay guys, I not talking about the regular one I'm talking about the gas card that the trucker use. I travel on the highway and see that they post a little cheaper price.

I'm mainly asking this so I can use it to go through the trucker gas pump, I know that I can use my atm/ debit card but you have to go in and give them the amount you want to pump and then go out and pump your gas.

I would like to be able to drive up, put my card in and get my diesel and or some DEF fuel, is it possible or do I have to just go in and tell them about the amount I want?

I will use it so I can avoid the regular pump and just go through where the trucker go, I was just wondering.

I have a long trip coming up and I want to use the side where the trucker go through. Thank you guys for your comments.

I use this: https://www.tsdlogistics.com/services/fuel-program/

You have to set it up to de a direct withdraw from a bank a count. I set up a second bank account with my bank so my regular account is not attached to it.

Big1, one thing you need to remember is the "trucker" pumps put out anywhere from 4 to 6 times GPM than the little guy pumps. Even the DEF...........trust me, the first time I used the DEF pump it blew back and covered me in DEF!!!

Yes, but it's not that bad. My Ford has the 48 gallon tank. I go to the truck lanes all the time. In and out in under 5 minutes. Haven't had a DEF bath yet.

I still have a Pilot card that does save me 3 cents a gallon at the car pump. On long trips it adds up but it is not a credit or debit card, just a discount card and was free.

Big1, I use the TSD Logistics card program, the one that Fyrehuntr linked to. You can use it at Loves, TA, Petro, and several other "Trucker" type stations. I t can save you anywhere from a few cents per gallon to 50, 60, 70 cents per gallon ... advertised price. It won't save on DEF but the truckers DEF is only a couple bucks a gallon in the truck lanes.

It takes a couple weeks for the account to get setup and to receive the card.

only Pilot/Flying J. I also have one for Shell that runs 3 to 5 cents off based on use. Both no cost.

TSD logistics is a great program! We saved between 4 and 12 dollars when filling up 30 gallons a few times already in the one month we have had it. Super fast to fill up my tank in the truck lanes!

Thanks guys I finally went to the TSD website to setup a account I guess I get it in about 2 weeks just in time before we goes on our next trip, planning a 2400 miles trip next month.

Big1, The truck pumps hose necks are typically larger than what most pickups are able to accept. I took the fill tube off the truck, opened it up with a dremmel and reinstalled it. The newer diesel pickups may have a larger opening...just an FYI

The TSD program works for more than Pilot/Flying J. As a matter of info., as of a few months ago, it does not give a discount at Pilot/Flying J. Seems as if Camping World had an exclusive contract with Pilot/Flying J for RV discount diesel fuel.

The newer diesel trucks have a larger diesel fill hole so, the truck pumps are not an issue. My 2019 Silverado accepts the truck pump fill. I'm not certain when the big 3 increased the size of the filler hole.

If I'm not mistaken, you can use a Good Sam membership club card for $.05 off at Pilot as well.

I look at it this way... Right now- our closest Pilot is 2.46/gal for cash. If you save 6cents that makes it 2.40 a gallon.

If I used my rewards card instead, the lowest rewards is 3% and best is 5%. If I take 3% off of 2.46 - that makes it a discount of 7.38 cents or 2.386 a gallon.
and for the 5% rewards makes it even lower at 2.337/gallon.

Now take it even further... down the street from the Pilot/Flying J, our closest Maverick has 9 Truck fuel bays and they are 2.359/gallon for diesel (credit). If I take the 3% rewards on my own card - that brings me down to $2.288 a gallon. Add on the Maverick 2cents a gallon discount they give with a maverick card - $2.268 a gallon

Who wants to pay $2.40 with a discount at Pilot/FJ instead of $2.26 a gallon anywhere else?

Good to know, the truck stops definitely make fueling up easier and IMO safer especially when towing. I hate pulling up to diesel pumps that also sell gas.
