X2 on the Pilot/Flying J card. There is no pump limit up to your monthly limit: $1,000 if you don't allow them to auto debit your checking account, $2,400 if you do. The card works at any lane including truck diesel, and also inside for sundry purchases. I swipe at the pump and then DW takes the card inside to buy ice cream. Hey, the driver's entitled to some reward!

I use my CC at the pump. Annoying to have to reset the pump at 30 gallons... but I usually dont take more than 60 anyway. For my dirtbikes/toys... I can fill the fuel cans simultaneously at another island close by.

We just finished about a 7k mile trip in 4 weeks. I can tell you that we have seen just about every amount that you can think of that they stop at. Some will just take the card and start the pump and the next won't. We stopped arguing.
Pilot/Flying J do have a rewards card and a credit card for RVer's. We have not gotten the credit card and don't intend to but we did get the rewards card since we are also Good Sams members (you have to be a GS member to get it, lol). I have seen them charge one price for trucker diesel and then another (lower) price in the auto lane (not RV lane).
Only once in our trip did we pay over $4 a gall. It was usually $3.97 to $3.99.

I called Citicard. They do not set the limits. Whoever says they do is passing the buck.

This is classic BOHICA. What other retail business makes you pay $$$$ and then shuts you off before you purchased what you need? Why do we put up with this?

With all the security cameras now days, there is no excuse for them to claim they are "protecting themselves" from the low-life "Runners".

The runners still take time and $$ to prosecute. It's easier to protect your business.

The real issue isn't runners - it's stolen credit cards. The merchant is stuck with the bill.

Guys, it's not a one way street.

After tiring of the multi-swipe routine, especially when I was traveling cross country filling up the RV, the largest U-Hual truck you could rent and my F-150, including, at times, using multi cards to cover the large purchases, I decided to do the cash routine to simplify the purchase and take advantage of the reduced price. I break up the cash and store in various places through out the RV. I have learned to estimate the fill-up amount using a trip planner program. I add $50 to the estimate and prep the funds prior to getting out of the RV. So far, I've not done bad at the "guesstimate" and have only had to go back in to get the change.

Thanks John. I didn't know there was one before my home exit, instead of the one after that I normally go to. That'll cut 4 miles off my trip. I'll have to check out their in/out arraignments tomorrow.

We generally pay cash for fuel, I figure what the fill up cost will be from the miles run. I have had CC numbers stolen on one occasion at one of the large truck stop chains, and can't do the swipe the card thing multiple times. We even had one Pilot require me to leave my DL along with the cash before they would turn on the pump, needless to say that did not happen took my $500.00 worth of legal tender on down the road.

I used to buy everything with cash and was never without $500-$600+ in my wallet. Mainly from fear of having a CC debt, until I learned how easy it was to just pay for everything with plastic and pay it off when the bill came or a couple days before it was due.

The first and only time I got propane for my MH from FJ, I had to go in and leave my CC. I'm used to it as I had to go in and let them know I needed my 5er 30#ers filled. Like most, I like to do everything at the pump. If I could get propane filled at home, I would do it, but none of the dealer will delivers less than 100 gallons.

Because of the hassle at the Flying J's, I just pass them by. JR
