I signed up for the Pilot charge card. The fuel is paid directly from my checking account and I get the CASH price plus a $.05 discount. Overall about $.11 less than the credit price.

So far it's worth it to me.

Yes the costco card works at truck stops and it works for diesel. I have personally talked with AMEX to confirm. Dick

We ended up with a very bad tank of gas in Nebraska this summer, my bet it was E85 or watered gas sold as premium. Buying from Flying J et.el was reasonably assured that would not happen.

I use a Marathon Oil credit card that pays me a 25 cent rebate on each gallon of gas or diesel purchased at one of their stations if I charge $1000 per month on their credit card; the rebate is 5 cents if you charge less than $500 per month and 15 cents if you charge between $500 and $999 per month.
I use the Marathon card for everything and pay the entire bill monthly costing me nothing in interest charges. I did this with a Shell credit card for several years until they severely limited the rebate; that's when I switched to Marathon.

Marathon is based in Ohio and has stations throughout the midwest and the south.

When I had my diesel pick-up I would fill up at truck stops most of the time, and only at gas stations I knew sold a lot of diesel. When I was pulling the fifth wheel on vacation - only filled at truck stops.
Saving a few pennies is not worth the risk of a bad tank of fuel while on vacation.

One bad tank of fuel convinced me that the extra few cents is not worth the hassle of bad fuel.

The highway stations move alot more product so their prices will be closer to current market than a station that buys once/twice a month.

On a recent trip I used the gasbuddy app to get a $.30/gal discount in the Atl area.
X2 on the gasbuddy app. It works for me as well. I added a extra 50 gallon tank and top off when its cheaper where ever that may be.
