Even when pulling the 5er, we've never stopped in IN. Its a "drive thru" state for us.

Actually, prices don't look bad at Flying J. You can filter by state. No idea how much tax gets added. One table shows $.16 ...

It's $4.40 for diesel in Connecticut ... higher than California.

I pass through Indiana a couple times a year, I do the same and plan my fuel stops to avoid Indiana.

I've got to second this statement. We've been through Indiana twice in the past couple months and found I-70 to be an absolute horrible road surface for a motorhome! So bad that I will go well out the way to avoid this highway in the future. Potholes and expansion joints that will ruin your alignment and loosen every fastener on board.... at least if feels and sounds that way.

cheers,

Indiana has a part time legislature. While some think that the lack of professional politicians is a good thing, sometimes you get a blatant example of what happens when you trust car dealers and country doctors with the law every couple of years.

What are the implications and ramifications of getting a DOT number? I assume that cost money also. I agree with skipping gas in the state but was curious.

I just stopped outside Decatur, In. about 3 weeks ago. Pulled into a BP for Diesel, pump was listed at 3.89. There was only one island and no pay at the pump. After fueling I went inside to pay and was asked for a DOT #, when I said I didn't have one the price per gal jumped to $4.05

Probably a major headache! To get a DOT# I suspect that you have to be running a commercial operation. Keep in mind that for IN it is a book keeping exercise. Folks with DOT# still pay tax on the fuel but it is done through state tax filings.

We came through Elkhart in July, pulled in for fuel and was told the islands were for truckers only. Finally found Diesel on the way to Indy. RV MFG capital? Next time I will not spend a dime in Indiana.

The hilarity of this situation and other situations created by politicians is they feel that this will have a positive effect or increase revenue. The thing they fail to realize is when you make your jurisdiction stand out in a way perceived as harder/more expensive/discrimatory/inconvenient you end up with a equal or greater backlash. Governments and some corporations think people will bend over and/or do as they please. In reality people will do what they want or may even react very negatively.

Sadly, boycotting IN. diesel fuel will be like wetting your pants in a black suit. Gives you a warm feeling, and nobody notices. RV diesel is pretty miniscule in the overall picture.

The RV fuel may be a small part of the total fuel sold in Indy, but the other money not spent may be felt. Food, campgrounds tourist stops. It will hurt the little guy. 2 bad, but I drive thru also.

I'd already begun boycotting IN fuel stops a couple of years ago because of the hassles their pricing/tax policies created. They've just thrown more dirt into the grave.

I feel badly for the fuel retailers, who have little influence on what goes on in the state house, as well as the other ancillary businesses that will no doubt lose even more RV business. The restaurants attached to many of these truck stops, nearby campgrounds and others will also feel the effects.
