I began buying diesel fuel at Murphys near our house when I discovered the local school district was refueling their bus fleet there. I figured if it was good enough for the school buss' it was good enough for our MH and my dually.

BTW, Murphys is not part of WalMart, they are totally separate companies with a business agreement.
Sometimes I have to bypass a Murphys though, some don't have room for our 40' MH and towed.

Virtually all on-road diesel fuel today has a minimum of B2/2% biodiesel to replace the lost lubricity during the refining process that removes sulphur, as it is the most cost-effective and efficient way to replace that lost lubricity.

The only station around here that I can get into is a Murphy's. They do a lot of truck business, so the fuel is fresh. I've never had a problem with the fuel. I have gone there once or twice when the tanker was refilling and left as I don't want the junk that gets stirred up when they put fuel in the tanks.

A little note on Flying J. Last weekend diesel was $2.199 at every station around except FJ where it was $2.499. Yes 30 a gallon more.

Costco here has their Diesel at $1.89 gallon. Most stations in town are at $1.99 gallon or more. Truck Stops are 15 to 25 cents more.

However, I've got to drive though grocery store portion of the parking lot (which isn't quite as new and spacious). I've got to drive right up one of the rows of car/pickup truck parking - in order to enter the fuel station at the proper angle. It's not an overly tight squeeze ... BUT, the looks I get as I tool through the lot makes it pretty clear that few people expect there will be a 44 foot long bus sneaking up behind them while they're pushing their shopping cart out to their car! I happened upon a friend while coming through the lot one day ... ya just gotta love those air horns!!!!!
Hope you've got more friends! I think you just lost one!

Didn't used to be that way - at least with gasoline. Before Flying J was bought by Pilot a few years ago, they had the best prices by far of anyone. Now they are just about the highest around - just like Pilot.

As for Murphy Oil I'm not a bit scared of their product. I've used their gasoline for several years. They are usually the best price in town. Usually same or cheaper than Kroger. As I recall Murphy Oil is based out of ElDorado Arkansas.

I tend to use truck stops most of the time even if I pay a bit more. Reason being is they go through a lot of fuel. Therefore, less likely to have water in the fuel.

If you are a GoodSam Elite Member, you can get 9 cents a gallon when you use the GoodSam Pilot/FlyingJ Card.

That brings the Pilot price closer to the cheaper stations.

Stepping over Dollars to pick up Penny's ?
Fuel at the same Franchises every single time and you'll have far less Fuel issues and easy to trace back if you do. Just kills me when you guys post this stuff about saving a few Bucks and driving the Big Rigs like you do.
I burn 3000 Gallons a year typically Always stop at Flying J's. The Fuel is clean the facilities are relatively nice and I like their Chicken Wings !

I believe to get elite status you have to buy a coach from CW.

It is not ONLY the savings. Part is the idea of value.

Not sure the first part is true and as to the second, trace back to what end? File a complaint? Know what particular station had the bad juice?

So you get more value for your money. If you don't use the facilities or eat chicken wings then...
