So much for all the posts claiming you always pay the cash price if you belong to their RV program.

PFJ has seen the last of my business......... no way I'm paying $.06 because I don't carry a lot of cash on the road. Maybe they need the increase to cover legal fees!

This must be a new policy and when I called their "customer service" hotline to complain, they could care less.

End of rant....... the card is going to the landfill.
I have noticed loves, pilot, ta, flying J,,,, ARE ALWAYS COMPETIG FOR THE HIGHEST PRICES ANYWAY. I avoid them all like the PLAGUE

Pilot/Flying J - Take this card and shove it.

Right now in Yuma, diesel at Loves is $3.33, across the street is Frys and they are busy! Why? They are $2.84.
That is $0.49 less, as in $49 per 100 gallons.
Um.....sheesh!
And I get cash back too!
And it is easy in-out for my 42 and toad.

That's great when you can find it. Fueling 130 gallons that much less would be nice. However, I refuse to drive 10 miles out and 10 miles back to save $3.00 dollars on a RV that gets about 8 mpg. Lets see that would be 20 miles or about 3 gallons at $3.50 per gallon or $10.50 to save $3.00 not including the time and effort. So I'm slow but it does not add up. Now, if it is on the same road I am, with easy access, at a station that really turns over the diesel fuel - OK. Otherwise not.

130 gallons at $.49 less would be about 64 bucks.
The new stations are great.
GasBuddy app.

The 'control number' at the pump is essentially the 4-digit pin for my RV Plus Card. The card is through Good Sam in association with Pilot/Flying J. My card, not sure about other people, has a $2,500 limit, a discount at the pump as stated earlier, and my monthly balance auto-debits from my credit union account once each month. Makes it a no-hassle option for me.

Certainly for those that prefer Loves, or a cheaper fuel station, very cool, one should seek the least cost when pumping 100+ gallons. Fuel prices lately are in a downward trend and we are home for the winter in Florida instead of traveling, therefore I am not current on what prices are around the country. That said, areas we had traveled over the last two years found most all major truck stops with the same diesel costs, plus or minus a few pennies, so we constantly use Pilot/Flying J.

I use Gasbuddy all the time and don't often find significantly better prices. Admittedly, my experiences are pretty much from the Front Range to the Pacific...but finding even 10 cent differentials is pretty rare.

Driving from Tallahassee to Knoxville, checked Gasbuddy.com and found diesel in Norman Park Ga for $2.79. This is the lowest price I paid in the last 5 years. I will wait until next year (Ha Ha) to fill the tank as I'm guessing the price might go down after the New Year.

Love my card at the diesel pumps. Makes for quick in and out, pay up at the end of the month or whenever I hit the 1K limit, never a problem. Maybe not always the best price around though

You get a control number when you get their RV Plus charge card. If you just have the RV savers card you do not have a control number.

Pilot/Flying J - Take this card and shove it.

Seems like many folks have used truck stops for many years. Well, access to the newer fuel stations is much easier today!
I have had no problems maneuvering since I learned how. This link teaches maneuvers for trucks. It is not quite the same in a long MH due to wheelbase differences, but the principles are the same.
GasBuddy and GoogleEarth help to make it even easier, and even more economical.
Give it a try. Save some money!
Best wishes!

I prefer the Penfed Visa which gives me 5% off each gallon. Sanford

Nice to save that much when you get home to Sunnyvale?
