One would hope that this may force the owners to take a good look at all levels.Not all owners know exactly what some of their employees do to make their bottom line look good. However having said that we know that they are responsible knowing or not. It seems that FJ has been on a downward trend for some time. I for one appreciate the RV lanes making fueling much easier.

I believe that they have 550 stations rathter than the 300 quoted. They were able to buy Flying J becasue they made a huge wrong decision on the oil futures market. Pilot/FJ is investing a huge amount of money on CNG and LNG on the East West expressways for the new Cummings/Westport natural gas long haul trucks. I hope they survive. I used them quite a bit on our recent trip. There prices were usually better and those RV lanes make things easier. I really love Gas Buddy to check pricing also. An easy in easy out means a lots more to me than a few cents.

Up to p60 of the affidavit, this is where it says Mosher is having a training class describing how and when to reduce customers rebates "manually". Unbelievable! If this is true, it's amazing they could get away with this for so long (the affidavit says Mosher said he started around the time of the Flying J bankruptcy).

Will I stop using them because of this? Probably not, I'll continue to use the lowest price fuel in a particular area, and if that's at a PFJ I'll go there.

datrbone8, is that cash or towards a purchase of a ford product?
It's going to be a check from the settlement administrator of the court.
I'm done with Ford/Navistar (the builder of the engines).

Giving you a rebate on one of their products is like a spit in the face.

Yeah, but I have seen courts do it many times. GM, AT&T, food products, etc.

What burns my b**t, is you're going to get $750 and the class action lawyer gets probably $4,000.00. My aunt was going to get into a class action suit against Sears Financial until she found out she was going to get $.11 and the lawyer got $4,000.00 per claimment.

A lawyer wanted us to get into a class action against Texas about having to BUY a handicap parking sticker from the state (it was discrimnatory against handicapers). For a refund of our $10.00, for two of them, the lawyer would get about $3,000.00 apeace We told both of them "we'll split our take and you split your take or blow it out your rear". Of course neither of them thought that was a good idea. One told me that he'd invested a lot of money into this project and I don't see how as the state of Texas gave him the list of handicapers with mailing labels, paid for the printing, and paid for the postage to mail out the flyers.

Majority of lawyers will get between 30-40% of each settlement. The rest goes to the claimant.

I really don't care what the lawyers get. They did all the work in prosecuting the case. I was included in the class simply because I made the mistake of owning a Ford/Navistar product which wasn't fit for use. I wasn't even aware of the suit until I got the notice from the settlement administrator. It cost me almost $ 3,000 in repairs for the turbo/cooling issue that they knew of but refused to repair under warranty.

Getting a check for $ 750 is fine with me.

regardless of what may be going on at their corporate headquarters, we used our GoodSam discount twice yesterday and it worked as smoothly as always .... hopefully that is a good sign
