We got the letter and I was in shock that Pilot will put in RV lanes in some of their bigger locations.
Don't know what I did wrong but got 10 cent discount on gas for toad this past Tuesday at Flying J in Youngstown, Ohio.

Pilot gave us the $0.02 discount with our Flying J card a couple of days ago when we filled our coach at a car gas pump, so at least as of now it is not RV lane only as they did not have an RV lane.

I use a Wright Express Card and receive the cash price with the credit card. I also get 2 to 5 cent rebate on the card depending on how many gallons we buy per month. I got my Wright Express card thru Sheetz a local WPA convience store. Ours is commerical but they advertise to indivuals also. It is better then the Flying J card and you never had to go inside.
Many of the large truck stops are keeping their fuel prices higher because of these discount cards and the drivers must stop and stay over until they clear the DOT requirements for off the road rules.

I stopped at the Flying J in Evansville, In. yesterday and the price of diesel # 2 was .25 cents higher than two other stations next door. Loves, and Pilot. There were two of us at the J and the other lots were so full I couldn't even get into the lot of the others. Also I handed the J card to the cashier and she couldn't even give me the .01 cents discount. It looks like it has gotten out of control. Also in In. they tag the tax on at the cash register for diesel unless you have a tax # or Truck ID tag or whatever it is called. I paid $9.88 extra for the full tank of fuel.

The old Flying J cards are no longer valid and the service desk should have given you a new one. I filled up at a Flying J last week and there was a stack of new cards beside the cash register and the woman handed me one that gave me 3 cents off a gallon of diesel.

In Indiana you have to be careful when you look at signs showing the price of diesel. Truck stations do not include the tax and cars / RV prices include the tax. So a station showing 25 cents less than another station are probably not including the tax.

Indiana is weird. When you fill up a car, pickup or motorhome you pay the tax at the register. OTR trucks do not pay the tax at the register, but have to mail the tax to the state of Indiana monthly or quarterly. So everyone pays the tax.

Last week I checked the car/diesel prices on the FJ/Pilot website so that I could plan our fill-up according to the lowest price. The price posted for car/diesel was 2.77 per gallon on the website. When we arrived at the fuel pump the price was 3.06. I was given the 3 cent discount on the first $75 but didn't recieve it on the other two. I will probably be going to other places to purchase my fuel in the future. I have been a FJ loyal customer for 11 years.

I filled up at Flying J on I-95 at Kenly NC last Monday, RV island. CC first, then RV card. It cut off at $75. I ran the cards 3 times to get filled up ...noticed later I got the discount on first two runs, but not the third. ...actually I was surprised the cc worked 3 times as normally 2 is the limit when I find it has cut-off point. My cc gives me 5% cash back when I pay at the pump, so I don't buy if I have to go inside to authorize.

The $75 cut off is a pain, but I got the 3 cent discount on all 3 tickets.

If you use your Costco American Express card you get 4% off fuel purchases in the USA. Less in Canada, however, there we will sometimes get fuel at the Superstores. You get 3.5 to 7 cents per litre to use towards purchases in the store. Along with the reduced Amex cash back it's still cash in my pocket.

I need to visit FlyinJ . com and update my snail mail address. Thanks

NOTE: for those who like to fill up in the truck lanes..........

Many states have succumebed to the "Soak the businesman" tax theory.

This theory is that since the businessman has all this money, He can afford to pay higher taxes... Of course the theory is as straight as a corkscrew and here is why.

WHERE DO YOU THINK MR. BUSINESSMAN GOT THE MONEY? right, you and me.

So since truckers are businessmen (And women) they jack the tax on the truck lanes.

Flying-J. When you scanned your RV card.. Would change the price to RV pricing and log the sale as an RV sale for Tax purposes.. (At least at most stations) but not all stations do this.. Many will just collect the "Commercial" rate tax and pay the state. The way the laws are written it is up to YOU to request a refund, not the station.

This is true? I live in the "land of taxes" NY state and I can't find that anywhere. They have a savings for biodiesel which I think is 20% off the normal tax rate (which applies to everyone). Well I know there is absolutely no logic associated with taxes so I guess people probably just allow this to happen. Sort of like watching a house burn down as the ultimate punishment for not paying $75 is considered "normal".
