Just don't think all FJ RV lanes are created equal. Quite a few feed directly towards the c-store, then a fight with idiots getting lotto tickets, five hot dogs five different ways,etc. Haven't fueled at FJ for a number of years.


Then add the RV drivers that can't drive, no thanks.

I'm ok with not paying the lowest prices. It's worth it to me to have the convenience of easy in/easy out.

Returned home Thursday and saw diesel for 2.45 and then 2.29 in Ooltewah, Tn. A bit off the intertate for the 2.45 price but right near for the 2.29 might take the car off for that price 78 cents per gallon difference from Pilots on the Interstate at 2.99 to 3.14. $78.00 savings is good.

If you have the Flying J card you get 8 cents a gallon off diesel.Only problem with the separate pumps is sometimes people fill up and go into store. Some pumps have signs on them to move forward after refueling. One time there were 2 motor homes at the pump. They were there when we got there and there when we left and no one was around. We had to use the regular pumps but sometimes that's not possible. Fortunately most people are considerate and move after fueling.

"If you have the Flying J card you get 8 cents a gallon off diesel."

Credit card right? If I use my Costco Visa I get 4% off so that is 12 cents per gallon based on $3 per gallon.

The Good Sam membership card (not a credit card) is good for 8 cents/gallon off on diesel and 5 cents off on gas at PFJ stations. We pay with our PenFed Cash Rewards VISA Card for an addition 5% off.

My other beef is every car lane is open but the small Toyotas and hondas use the RV lane.

I can usually get into the car lanes...if I block traffic while jockeying around in a 87 point turn.

We usually look for a Love's truck stop. Never had a problem getting into any of the gasoline lanes, (my RV has the gas fill at the drivers side back wall, and I'm 31ft) and they have dedicated RV overnight parking lanes out front away from the big rigs in back. We usually look for one using the app, call to verify overnight RV parking and go there and in the morning fill up the gas and head out. Most have dump stations and fresh water, some sort of fast food etc... Works for us

I looked into getting a Pilot Plus Gas Credit Card. You have to be a Good Sam member to get the card. We let our membership expire because even with the discount at CW, it's still more expensive than buying stuff on Amazon. Then half of the campgrounds we've stayed at used to honor GS but don't any more so we rarely got a discount off our stays. It just wasn't worth the money to keep the membership. So I would have to re-join at a cost of $30 to then get the Gas Credit Card in order to save 10 cents per gallon. So before I even break even, I have to put in 300 gallons of gas. I live in New York State. I won't use that many gallons of gas going to Florida and back. It's just not worth the hassle. If I was a full timer, then I can see the benefit but being weekend warriors during the summer without a Pilot or FLying J available most of the time and snowbirds to Florida makes it hard to just break even.
