Can I fuel at these stations?

I have a 38 ft. Class A. There is a "gas station" close by my storage facility that does not have an attendant. It is just a few pumps with nothing else. It looks like easy in and out for my RV. It has the fuel man signs up but the signs also say they take visa and MasterCard. Does anyone know if these are just for fleet drivers or can I just go and fill?

Unless otherwise noted for other than fleet customers, I would think it would be ok for you to utilize.

If you have the correct "pump start card" for those "un-attended fuel pumps" you can buy fuel there.

Likely a 'Cardlock' station. You need to sign a contract with them.

Yes.
If you can't start the pump you can't buy fuel.
Contact the fuel company and fill out the forms...if you qualify they will send you the correct card.

I have had a 'cardlock' Pacific Pride for 19 years. What I like about it is you can get fuel at 2 pm or 2 am plus you get a book that tells every station location and there ranking on location in and out. I have it set up to go onto my credit card once a month plus we used it going through Canada.

2stroker, is there a minimum purchase or annual fee on the Pacific Pride. On our trip out west there were lots of PP stations but regular truck stops were hard to come by.
We are mostly along the east coast where there are plenty of Pilot/FJ but no Pacic Pride. We would only use PP on trips out west and didn't want to pay a fee or be required a minimum purchase.

We had one, requires a commercial business to qualify where we are. Used it a few times and it was convenient. BUT we found that regular stations were up to 20 (and sometime more) a gallon cheaper, plus we really didn't use it enough to meet their minimums either.

Depends. There are several places without an attendant that have pumps that are activated by use of a credit/debit card and require nothing more. I have seen many in Iowa but don't know how prevalent they are elsewhere.

Well I don't have a commercial business and I only get diesel. Now the gas side of PP you have to use 200 gallons a month. Sometimes in the winter I may not get any fuel for 3 or 4 months. I find the PP is the same as the stations here and sometimes less plus the price changes daily. I can call to see what the price is, remember each PP is independently owner and I get a 5% discount when it goes on my credit card. I have 2 cards one for my MH and one in my truck. Would not leave home without it.

I used the fuelman on Broadway in St. Louis and it took visa no problem. Yes it was unattended.

Floyd, PP has gone away from the book of stations and now have a smart phone app. The app has a map and some other data for stations that are in the PP system. They will tell you how the access to the station is and what services are available. PP does have some stations that are privately owned and you can't get access info for them plus you cannot call PP and get the current price of fuel at those stations.

I think it was last year when I got my new cards (Pride Advantage) and I picked up a new book with all the stations and it has the access to the station and there ratings. Looks like I will have to get the phone app.
I have been going to the same PP close to 20 years for fuel and used one of the owners fuel trucks to get my CDL with HazMat in 86 before it was a PP station.
