TSD Logistics Loves price .36 cents less on diesel

There has been a lot of information on the TSD Logistics diesel fuel program which is nation wide but when you use it for the first time it really makes a difference. Traveling in California where diesel is close to over 4$ a gallon to save 36 cents a gallon is a big deal. It can be used a numerous different stations but it's Loves is where the biggest discounts are. The cash pump price was 3.87 and after the TSD discount the price was 3.51. We have been using the Good Sam Flying J/Pilot program for 8 cents a gallon from cash price but that card will be put away now in favor of the TSD. You can start the pump without going in store which makes it easy to use. Take a little time and work to get started but when we travel sometimes 20K plus miles a year we are talking of hundreds of dollars in saving. More information at TSD Logistics RV fuel program.

We got ours just before we headed for Arizona from central Missouri. Traveled about 1800 miles using only the TSD fuel card and saved about $140 in fuel cost. Our best price was at a Travel America in Missouri, $2.41/gal. Stopped at Loves the rest of the way. The EFS app shows you the best prices along your route. We too have put the Pilot/ Flying J card away for now. I did read that TSD are working towards an agreement with Pilot/ Flying J. Safe travels

X4 Definitely saving on fuel with the program. But boy o boy do those truckers ever jerk around getting fuel and paying. You would think they are all getting paid by the hour. Sit in their trucks eating lunch while there is a line behind them.

Our fuel savings have ranged from $14.50 on 48 gallons, to $21.82 on 60 gallons. I like the EFS app which lists the lowest price in the area. It took a bit to set it up but once running NO issues except this:

**We did find one station where card could only be used
at truck pump in back that was full so we went to pumps in front. Discount did not work (This was in Manitoba Canada)

I used mine for the first time last week. I saved nearly $39 on 77 gal at Love’s. Just for giggles, I checked all of the local prices on Gas buddy. TSD/EFS price was the lowest available. It’s crazy to not get in on this.

Me X 6 or 7 ( whatever the next number was). Iíve saved as much as .70 per gallon ( in Vegas). Maybe the best fuel program around. App also shows your past transactions and is helpful in calculating trip cost. Have not seen one negative about the company.

It appears that FMCA is now putting a fuel discount program together like their Michelin discount tire program. As the TDS program grows they say there will be additional reductions in diesel fuel cost for card holders. Flying J and Pilot will notice the reduction in RV traffic and should start seeing prices drop for them when using TDS card. It appears one can use this TDS program nation wide for large discounts on our diesel fuel prices.

Going to use mine for the first time starting Wednesday on our trip to Yuma for the winter, will be pulling away from pumps with a big smile for a change!

Used mine to top off the tank and give it a test run on the way back from Camp Newmar. Saved $14.42 on 40 gallons. To borrow a phrase from Charles Heston, you’ll get my EFS Card when you pry it from my cold dead hands.

I called em up a week after applying and not hearing anything. Got the card just a few days later even though I told the woman on the phone that I was in no rush.
