Like most of you, I avoid fueling in Indiana anyway, cause the price (with tax) is so high. I have the Pilot/FJ "pump start" RV card, so can use their truck islands anyway. Or at least as I understand it, I still can.

Everybody pays the same price anyway, whether you pay at the time of purchase or pay later when the quarterly tax bill comes. Sure seems like it would be a lot easier and smarter for Indiana to collect the fuel tax from every buyer at the time of sale (like every other state but one), but what do i know?

I think most gas station profit comes from their convenience store, not fuel, so a boycott could be more than a pin prick.

Fair point

Personally, I never go inside unless I'm looking for a local paper.

Certainly was a confusing and aggravating experience trying to get fuel this summer in Indiana. I now will just drive by. No problem. I hate the pricing rules there...
Nobody will give a damn if we all bypass the fuel stops there. Just my thoughts.

The only reason that we go to Indiana is to visit Shipshewana every now and then. Living in middle Tennessee, we take US highways and I-75 up thru Ohio then scoot on over to Shepshewana and spend as little time as possible driving on Indiana's roads. But having a gas motor home, I have to gas up out with the cars anyway and just try to pick and choose gas stations that are accessible to my coach and toad.

I was an otr driver. Companies get a discount for fueling. Plus the company I drove for, you had to list every road you traveled in every state so they could pay the fuel tax.

we generally avoid he truck stops, pricing there is outrageous. Last one I used, the lanne next to me upwind was washing down his load of pigs to cool them off.

Use "gas buddy" to find the good diesel #2 rates, use "google earth" to check out the entrance/exit to the station.

We been driving class A coaches since 2007. Had a 38' one originally. Little bit shorter now. Haven't used truck lanes more than a couple times a year. Just stop wherever there is a fuel stop. Have never had to unhook toad. Just check good before pulling in. Has worked good for us.

Now as to Indiana. If your coach can make it 270 mile on a tank of fuel. You most likely won't have to buy fuel in our state. My guess is that we will never notice. Just saying

I'll notice if I don't buy any fuel in Indiana and that's all that matters to me. Just like I don't buy Citgo. The Highways in Indian are some of the worst. I-65 is a washboard so this is another reason to avoid the state totally.
You just cannot fix stupid !

I live in both Alaska and Ohio. Indiana would be my preference for fuel as I exit I 70 at exit 1 in Ohio and do not pass anymore diesel stops on my way to the house.

I enjoy spending money in IN a great state.

My problem is I can't stand IL and refuse to spend money there so I have to make it from WI to OH on my way home. Not a big deal I get around 800 miles to a tank and WI to OH is 400 miles. Would be nice to top off in Richmond so my first stop leaving the house isnt a fuel stop.

Indiana ...forgetaboutit!

With this latest rule change in Indiana it is just one more reason to avoid this state. My recent experience traveling through Indiana on their Interstates confirmed what others have been saying...the worst roads.
