    Anyone with a diesel needs to watch this, be sure to watch full length for the details:
    tripleb...can you PM me with your info? I'm filling out the TSD Logistics application and apparently you'll get credit for referring me to them.

    Thanks for this!

    I have the Pilot/FJ card. When I was racing and towing big stuff all over the country, this would have com in handy. I only put about 8,000 miles a year on the truck now, but it would still be helpful on those Disney trips.

    Same request as Stork. PM me your details and I'll put you in as the referral source.

    Thanks for sharing. I have the FlyingJ/RV card that works great on Teamubr's recommendation, but we are looking at a trip through a state that doesn't have FlyingJ. Signed up this morning. Looks like it will really fill the void on some trips.

    Seems that even after the P-FJ merger years ago there are still significant gaps in the distance between their way stations in some states. Hope this new card helps.

    Thanks for the info! I'm going to apply today. I already have the Pilot/Flying J RV card but I have needed fuel and ended up having to use a credit card because no Pilot/FJ. I have a Loves about 3 miles from my house and it would be nice to fill up before a trip and not have to put anything on a CC. Glad I don't have to mess with DEF!

    This card "should" give you a greater discount than the Pilot/Flying J card.

    Teamubr,
    Can't thank you enough for your original post on this. Heading home from FW last week, I was able to save over 50 cents/gallon at Loves, even after the 10% admin fee. Thanks for the extra $24.50 in my pocket!

    PFJ RV charge card is great, being a life member I get 8c a gallon off cash and that's worth it to me. I use it for all of our big trips plus I plan stops ahead since I know my range and can skip the more expensive states and cities. It is a NET15 account, though still worth the savings over cash or credit.

    I'd love to take credit for this, but that all goes to @tripleb.

    I'm glad someone tried it and updated us all. 50 cents is pretty impressive, especially when you are buying as much diesel as some of us.

    Thanks for the "credit" Teamubr :) I didn't receive my approval/card until a couple of weeks after I made the original post. I used the system this past Christmas during a 950 mile adventure to Savannah, Ga. Worked as per advertised. Seems to have a greater % savings at Loves fuel stops although, Pilot and Flying J definitely are a better savings than their own "discount" card. Over our 950 mile trip, I saved slightly over 30 bucks :smokin:

    Dang, I stand corrected. Guess I didn't scroll all the way back to the beginning of the thread. No Offense intended, Tripleb! I think I was too euphoric about getting 50 cents off each of my 51 gallons.
    It helps, especially after a week at FW and the credit card bills start arriving...LOL

    I haven't pulled the trigger on this, but I may have to after hearing some "real world" experiences. I always fill my tanks at Sam's before we go anywhere. It is typically 10-15 cents cheaper than the gas stations in town and much better than the truck stops near me. When I "fill up" it is usually 75-90 gallons. At 50 cents a gallon, that is worth the drive to the Loves on the highway, even at Illinois gas tax rates (Loves $3.05/gallon today. Sam's in town $2.62)

    Just a point of reference for you Teamubr, there is a Loves about 20 miles north of me. I went by it this morning and their sign was showing 2.98 per gallon. The app that you use for the fuel savings showed 2.46 per gallon.
