Get Fleet Rates When Buying Diesel
“Hey, fuel is 10 cents cheaper across the street, let’s go over there?!?” said Marc never! We pick gas stations based safety first, reputation of the brand second, and ease of getting in and out third.
We love visiting truck stops for the following reasons:
- Safety! Period. I’ll gladly pay more without risking damage to the RV
- Significant fuel savings through the TSD Fuel Program
- The pump doesn’t shut off at $100
- High-flow pumps save time
- Its easier to clean the windshield with long poles and clean fluid
- Great customer service with clean facilities
- Do I need to mention the CAT scale??
If you own a diesel truck or RV, there are significant savings to be had through a fuel savings card. You can get fuel from most truck stops at fleet prices. We’ve been using the TSD Fuel card for a couple years now and we’ve seen big savings.
If savings is your number priority, just download the app to find out where the biggest savings are.
Some people have written in saying that the fuel card stops just hike up their prices to offset the savings. Not exactly. Truckers pay an over-the-road fuel tax. At most truck stops, you’ll notice fuel on the “car side” is cheaper than the truck lanes.
Keep in mind, one incident or damage to your RV trying to negotiate tight quarters will cost you your fuel savings for the next year! Plus, in most cases, the savings of fuel card offsets the higher price.
Let’s talk about fuel lane etiquette. Most RVers are out having fun while truckers are making a living on the road. We can all help the reputation of RVers using truck fuel lanes by being ready to pump, not wasting time and pulling forward to the yellow line when finished.
