I would think they need to review their marketing program.

62 thousand people talking about any product sounds like a pretty good marketing program to me. lol

But I know what your meaning! I use FJ/P cause I like the ease of using the truck lanes. Have the good SAMs pilot card so I can start pumping at the pump.

Plus I feel more comfortable when DW is driving ( or me) using the pull through truck lanes. Don't like the tight turns required in RV lanes!

Planning a trip west, can I use the truck diesel pumps in Indiana if I have the pump start on my Flying J card?

The P/FJ in Brookshire does have an RV pump, it has 2 located on the far left of the car lanes. We stop there regularly on our way to West Texas.

There have been many posts about trying to buy fuel in Indiana. Avoid buying fuel in Indiana truck stops, if possible. Strange state laws negate the "start at the pump" feature (unless you are a commercial operator) and you'll not know what you're actually paying as the signs out front are meant for the truckers.

I have read all of the many post, but I thought this had been settled. Thats why I was asking

I'm so sorry you are having so much trouble with your card. I'm not trying to frustrate you, but trust me when I say that I have great success both buying diesel and gas with mine.

Certainly something is not setup properly with your card.

I have been there several times and guess I just can't find it. I know the one on I-45 has an RV lane on the far right side but I used the far left lane in Brookshire to get gas and there was no RV lane around. This is for gas, not diesel.

BTW, I have the book listing all the P/FJ locations and check that to try to find a place to get gas.

P/FJ is not the only game in town!

I use GasBuddy and find regular stations with outside end pumps with plenty of room for any rig. Easy in/out. Gas or diesel. Pay at pump.

I beat P/FJ by 10 to 17 cents, and get cash back on my card.

The new gas station designs are stepping up.

For those on the East Coast and traveling I95 in South Carolina, there is a new FJ at exit 77. The design is different. When exiting the RV pumps (gas or diesel) one drives straight to the truck parking lot at the rear of the property. Once there, one can circle around and exit the same as an OTR truck. Hopefully, this design will continue as they open new locations or upgrade the existing locations.

As to the PFJ charge card not working, my card has worked (both gas and diesel) since I got it. I use both the gas and diesel pumps, truck and RV and auto lanes. The card works as advertised each and every time.

The new setup does minimize the RV car conflicts but the RV sites to the right as you pull into the truck parking area gets filled up with otr rigs and are not pull thru and are noisy the rear edges are bettet

Gas motorhome fueling station

I own a gas 40 ft. coach, pulling a dolly and a car on it. The truck fuel stations have no gas pumps so we must use the gas rv lanes, all two of them. If someone need to get propane, they have to get it at the entrance of the rv fuel station and that means, on most times we travel, we sit and wait. This has been the #1 complaint I have with your stations. I don't even use Pilot as you have no room to get a big rig in to fuel up and maneuver your way out. You need to enter the 21st century and do some re-engineering or something for not just our gas coaches, but all of the travelers pulling 5th wheel, and TT's.
