Flying J

There's a good reason that Flying J is not getting any of my money. Do some digging/checking out and take your business elsewhere

If you're referring to the video with a trucker claiming they don't fly the American flag that was debunked by several sources. If you're referring to something else please enlighten us.

Hold on a minute and I'll get the scissors and cut up my Pilot/Flying J card.

Assume you. mean the fuel deal where they cheated trucking companies. Those responsible for that are gone, the ex CEO is in trouble and they now have new management. Not going to punish the new group for something another group did.

I was referring to the flag incident. I didn't see any video. I will stop in and check things out for myself. I'm pretty touchy when it comes to our flag. Thanks for setting things right

Guess you go stark raving mad when you see people wearing "flag" clothing.

Been on the first 1500 miles of what should be about 8000 this year--won't buy from FJ/Pilot unless there is no alternative. Nothing about flags/fraud, but just outlandish pricing--on this trip, have consistently found them to be at least 30cents higher than nearby options. Here in St. George, FJ is $3.49, filled at a Texaco for $3.09. Thats a lot of difference...

Find The Cheapest Truck Stop - TruckMaster Fuel Finder

Great app for finding truck stops along your route. Then use Gas Buddy to check the current pricing.

These are not all Pilot and Loves stops

Not the flag lie but the Trucker fraud scam they were convicted of.

Sadly.. We have a country now where this kind of thing extends to the verh higest offices in the land.. It is getting harder and harder to find an honest company. Flying-J got outed and convicted and that actually makes them better than say Exxon/Mobile ANd no I will not explain that.
