The advantage of buying fuel at Pilot/Flying J, is the quality of the fuel. The cetane rating will always be seasonably blended, and you will be assured of getting best fuel mileage . You want have to worry about cylinder wash from excess unburnt fuel, which will dilute your oil, over time. Secondly, P/FJ, has dump stations, propane, tire service and a restaurant. I have never had a problem using my P/FJ credit card at the pump and getting maximum discounts. I used them exclusively in my trucking business, and I travel approx. 20m per year in my DP, and will continue to use them. I think we need national companies supporting RV travel and hopefully our national clubs and association can help make this companies even better.

I must have fueled and gas in over 15 states the last 3 months and PFJ has been mostly at par or cheaper with the card.
Our Canadian cc never work on most pumps except using the PFJ. card to open the pump.
We always use their sites to budget our travels.
I always get top grade fuel at PFJ and I found that going to cheapest price does not always deliver best miles per dollar. I have 3 location I fuel in the states and one in Canada that deliver best cost per miles and they are not the cheapest per gallons. Some off the cheap locations are up to 17% off on miles per dollar. Just feel it when loaded and notice the difference on my scangaugeII readings. Some fuel tanks i need to add 2 cycle oil to get the efficiency back but never Pilot. I always wonder how truckers get along fueling at some of the places with bad fuel, they must notice.
I get the best mpg with PFJ and Exxon/Esso and I am sticking with it.
ScangageII has payed for itself many times over just by fuel savings alone.

We buy diesel at Flying J a lot but our problem is a lot of their stations have switched to Bio-Diesel up to 20 %. Our owners manual clearly states not to use any more than a 10 % blend so therefore we always call ahead and check what grade they are selling before we pull into one of their stations. We try and stick to #2 Diesel wherever possible....Alan

You were one of the lucky ones that got your trucking rebate like they promised. Hopefully you were able to carry it over to your RV.
Fortunately with my Gas Buddy app I am able to find major brand fuel at much reduced prices even factoring the Good Sam Flying J card with the monthly billing.
If they had competitive pricing like they give the Freight Lines, I would be back in a heartbeat.

This was supposed to be a thread for educational purposes to provide information on how to fuel at Pilot Flying J stations, but it has now gone so far off topic it really isn't very useful.

To all of those that are here only to bash PFJ, why don't you show some courtesy and start a new topic, like "Why I Never Fuel at PFJ", or "Here is How I Find the Lowest Fuel Prices", instead of contaminating this thread?

This thread has ran its course. 68 pages is enough for any thread on any topic. If you want to continue discussing Pilot-Flying J, you may start a new thread. Closed.
