I know not everyone travels as much as I do. I applied for my PenFed in March - traveled in April, May and early June. I earned sufficient points or credits that they are sending me a $500 prepaid visa card. I'm sure my wife will take good care of that card but I've already figured a Scangauge Diesel is the first purchase. She can have it then. The PenFed card seems to work well for me and I'll continue to recommend others use it.

I agree completely. PenFed and GasBuddy or MSNgas.

Some say that FJ-Pilot have more space for manuevering, have DEF or propane which may be worth it to them.

Good goin' 1ciderdog, Very good use of the card. Sounds like your using the one with the 'points'. Didn't know they give you the 'points' or 'credit' in the form if a visa debit card. Handy for you, huh? I'm glad for the choice. I chose the credit on each statement.
My wife likes the way our Discover card works with the 'points' or 'cash-back' as they call it. She usually cashes it in once a year or so for what ever. It usually is for $500-$750. The Pen-Fed card will probably be used for mainly fuel on the road. We travel about 4-5 months out of the year. I will probably use the Pen-Fed card for gas too but getting my wife to switch would be a problem as old habits die hard.

John, Yes, Gas Buddy and also MSNgas are both of great use. I have them both on my Android from Virgin Mobile. It has both Wi-Fi and GPS, so for info I do need to stop somewhere to use their Wi-Fi such as a McDonald's or a lot of other restaurants have Wi-Fi.

I would like to take this opportunity to inform some folks that don't know,... If you would like to use some of the apps available for Android, you CAN without having phone service too. I don't make or receive lots of calls so for phone service I use a Tracfone. The only app I started out needing was one to locate a satellite for direct. I know it's not hard to find without an app but what's difficult is to KNOW that it's not being covered by a tree or building before you actually obtain a signal.
My satellite finder app shows me where the satellite is even if it's tree covered.
My daughter and son-in-law gave me an Android for Christmas. The satellite finder app cost $20 but the others I have were FREE. I have weather, three fuel reporting apps, I can even check my email. I can send emails also but don't because of the small touch buttons and my FAT fingers.
GWinger.
