I'm looking for a fuel card to use at the pump at truck stops on the truck side. Visa, MC, etc. are not accepted, at least I haven't noticed one yet. Paying at the pump sure would speed thing up especially when I walk at a snails pace! Any recommendations?

Thanks,

Jack

Jack have you tried a search for the sites of stops you prefer, perhaps they offer a clue to the cards they accept.
Here's a couple to start with.

Thanks. I'm afraid that what I want is for Commercial Use Only, which I'm not. Bummer!

Jack,
I stopped at a Flying J in georgia last week. They were working on the RV pumps so I used the truck diesel and it took my VISA. The only thing you have to answer a lot of questions as if it were a fleet truck unless you use the intercom and tell them it is an RV. Also if you need a reciept you have to go inside, I just write down the gallons and cost to enter in my log.

I have found in my travels that commercial side vs the RV side is different because of the fuel taxes.
In a couple of states OTR folks pay a higher fuel tax due to the wear and tear OTR trucks do to the highway.

Yes, I remember a couple of truck stops in Arizona that deducted something from my fuel bill because I was a RV, but this was not universal at all truck stops. I guess most truck stops look at us RV'ers a nuisance when we fill up on "their side!"

In AZ, unless you fuel at the car pumps, every station will rebate you the "big truck" taxes that are included. But you have to ask for it and do another piece of paper.

Apparently, some folks are in such a big hurry that they can't spare that amount of time.

Thanks, I'll be sure to take advantage of this when in Arizona. Planning to be there from September- March, assuming that the price of diesel doesn't keep me away!

I checked with a couple of the companies that issue fuel cards to the "big boys."

Fleet One only issues commercial fuel cards

Multi- Servicewill talk to me about a card if I meet their minimum requirements: 1000 gallons of fuel purchased each month plus a transaction fee of $3.30 per transaction each time fuel is purchase. Well, I guess that I could meet the gallon requirement if I towed my 5'ver 316 mile every day!

Jack, even with a commercial card you'd still have to go inside to get a receipt, or, do like the other gent and just write down the info from your Visa transaction and boogy on down the road.
