Pacific Pride RV Fuel Card Lock Program

Good Morning All
Wondering if anyone uses the Pacific Pride RV Fuel Card Lock Program. If you do, how do you find what the price is before pumping. We signed up through Pioneer Fuel and have been told we must call each time we fuel for the price, no web site.
We would also appreciate your comments about actual savings verses other fuel programs and what you think about convenience or anything else that is either pro or con.
Thank You

I have had a card for a few years. I use it mainly for convenience as necessary as they are usually priced higher than other dealers in the area.

They used to send out an email showing pricing in various locations, but the girl that did that no longer works for Pioneer, and no one has continued it. So bottom line, yes you have to call in for pricing.

Two benefits are, they are very easy to pull into, and there is usually no wait.

Hi tnrvers,
There is no way, except by calling, to determine the price you will pay. This is the main reason I did not sign up with them. Convenience is the benefit of this plan. If they are where you are, the convenience may be worth the program.

I used Pacific Pride for a couple of years but stopped after they stopped sending the email with current location prices. It seemed to me the cost was above the neighboring stations but I never had to wait in line to get fuel and the locations were easy to drive in and out of. I still carry the card and may use it at some point.

Murphy fuel @ Walmart is cost efficient. Go in the store and load a gift card and you save $.03/gl. If you get a Walmart charge card you save $.05/gl.
Not the easiest to get in and out of but I have made it every time with a 38' MH & toad.

I use it all the time. As others have said 24-7 access no lines, lots of locations, don't have to put up with anyone. The other thing i like is they have a high turn over of fuel so i dont worry about garbage in it.I find that for the most part it it is between 2-10 cents cheaper then local price.
Wouldn't travel without it.

We had their card for many years because getting a 40 footer in is usually much better at their locations. I never checked the price. Just closed out the account because we are fulltiming now in our 3rd week and probably won't need their card. Just one more piece of plastic to carry.

I also use Pioneer Fuel. Before I need fuel, I check the price by calling and checking multiple locations along my route. Then I consult other fueling places using the internet. Then I make a decision as to where to fuel based on price and ease of entry/exit. You will find that Pacific Pride will either be higher or lower, sometimes as much as 10 cents/gal, so you can make the decision, no big deal. I only buy fuel at places that have a high fuel turnover to avoid the problems with dirty fuel.

We used to have it, but since they required it to be a commercial account and use something like 200 gals a month we quit using it when we closed the business. We also found that the fuel was more expensive by some 10 a gallon and sometimes more. Convenient to get only one bill but sometimes hard to find when we needed it.

Pioneer Fuel offers RVers a non-commercial account with no minimum purchase requirement. A national and Canadian directory of Pacific Pride (Petro in Canada) locations is available from Pioneer Fuel. My directory was free but I was charged for shipping.

A Pacific Pride card does have an annual minimum purchase requirement, but Pioneer Fuel Pacific Pride Commercial Fueling Network is a reseller and does not have any minimum requirement.

I have the Pacific Pride locations loaded as POIs on my GPS device and have never had a problem locating one when needed. You can download the CSV file or an iPhone/iPad or Android app here: Pacific Pride Commercial Fueling - Cardlock Fuel Network - USA and Canada

pacific pride.

I enrolled and do carry the P.P. card, Yes it's more expensive than most area gas stations,/truck stops. But it is premium fuel. with all additives already in the fuel so no need to purchase and carry additives for injector cleaner/lube. I basicly use it because it's just around the corner of the home. I fill the tanks upon return from a trip before putting m/h away. I'm ready for trips without the trip for fuel before departure. A lot of the truck stops won't allow r/v into the commercial fuel lines and their diesel pumps are not user friendly for units with trailers/toads. So for me it's just a conveinence.

I use the commercial pumps all the time, with the toad, and have never seen anything that denied access to RVs. What brand truck stops are you talking about?

Most truck stops in Indiana require a dot stamp to use the commercial pumps.
