Pretty sure 45 and 24 makes 69.
Last I heard 65 was the legal limit in all but two states. All kidding aside, I have a similar length issue. Ever been stopped or had problems due to your length?

To pull forward is aways the correct thing to do. If you can't get far enough ahead to allow the next rig in, pull around to the RV parking space, then go into the store. If you note how many Dollars your pump read when you shut it off they will have that record and the proper receit. Never had a problem.
It is upseting to fellow Rvers that just sat and watched you pump 100 gallons and waited their turn to now see you disapear into the store to stand in line for 20 minutes just to get a receit.
Please pull around the world was not created just for you.

What Sidewinder said... Always pull forward.. when you turn the pumps off they will not let anyone pump more on your dime..

If it hasn't been mentioned..

Pull Forward..

Most of the time we stop at the J because you usually can get propane along with your fuel. Generally the J is clean, which is more than I can say for some of the competition. As a general rule we can fuel easier in the RV line as opposed to the truck lines. The penny a gallon is nice but no deal breaker. The 75 cents on a normal fill (100 gallon tank) isn't going to buy a snack let alone lunch. Speaking of lunch, we have tried a couple of their buffets on I-10 in Texas - buy fuel and continue your journey.

I would prefer a free coffee. One penny a gallon is a joke.

Yes, a cup of free coffee would definitely be better than the penny a gallon. Now if we could just get Starbucks to provide the coffee

The card is more valuable than the one cent discount. It allows you to use your credit card and still receive the cash price which saves an additional 4 cents or more. Further if you usew it to buy the buffet/food you can some further benefits.

Leo is correct. The more one spends inside the building determines the amount of fuel discount for the following month. I was surprised at how clean (wife clean test) the restaurant was. The food is cafeteria quality and moderately priced. The wife and I can have dinner for $20. (not including tip). Based on the $s I will spend this month (February) I should be at the $.08 per gallon discount for the month of March. The trick to getting the most fuel discount is to try and make purchases inside the building in the calendar month before large travel is scheduled. I need to figure out how to do this in May so I can maximize my savings on June travel.

I'm glad Gary had good experience with the food. We ate at the Brookshire & the Baytown, TX, plazas this past December and their food left whole heaps to be desired. We will not try them again except as a last resort.

i'm with Jim C., I'd rather eat worms then Flying J food. As far as the penny a gallon rebate, it hardly makes a dent. I do like the guarenty of clean fresh deisel fuel, and a fairly safe place to stay over night when on a trip. I did not recieve the cash price when I used my card and my RV card, whats up with that ?

Steve,
Did you swipe your J card first?

Gary,

My wife always takes the Flying J card and our credit card inside so that the pump will not cut off at $75. The only discount that we have gotten is the penny a gallon. Maybe it's my breath.

For those having difficulty receiving any discount due them at the "J", try swiping your J card first. Then follow the instructions on the screen. The instructions are different for the truck and RV pumps. I have used both pump types, for coach and towed vehicle fuel. In 3 years:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>I always got the cash price using my AMEX card.
<LI>I always got the discount per gallon I qualified for.
<LI>The pump never cut off until the tank was full. Yes, some high dollar amounts are pumped.
<LI>At the RV island, I receive my receipt, at the pump. Never need to go inside.
<LI>At the truck island, when the tank is full I:
1. Pull forward to allow the next vehicle to begin fueling.
2. Go to the receipt carousel inside the building.
3. Find and sign my receipt.
4. Take my two copies and leave one copy for the cashier. There is no waiting in line to get one's receipt.
5. Return to the coach.[/list]This process is consistent at every J I have been to in the last 3 years.

When we stop in Virgina, we go to the Flying J in Fort Chiswell and their buffet is almost always great. Once in a while something is dried out, but most of the time well worth it.
