private fueling stations

Does anyone use or belong to Pacific pride fueling stations or any same as. Do you like it? Are fuel costs better or same as retail gas stations. It looks to be more convenient than your corner gas station. Any comments. Thanks steve

I use Pacific Pride and find them very good.

For me its location and access. Over the years I was very frustrated with limited good access sites in Southern California. including San Diego so I signed up with them.

They have many. Some may not have good big rig access so I check their website and Google Earth to pick one that I can get in and out OK.

As for price, that is not my concern. I know they are close to truck stops and lower than our corner stations that carry diesel as for the times I have checked.

Their system is very good. Insert card. Refuel, drive away and get email bill and then they charge my bank account at end of month.

My biggest complaint with Pacific Pride is the price/gal is not shown at the pump. You never know what you pay until the bill comes. I refuse to do business that way. I shredded my cards.

If this is ones concern they should not bother.

But they are competitive because many local companies use them from seeing various trucks go in and out. Also there are competitive operations around here, like SC Fuels!

I have this or some local name brand stations, like
Valerao, which are much higher.

use them exclusively,
as far as price, very competitive. If you need to know the price,
you can call them and they will give you the price at that exact time.
I use them commercially, as well as for the rv. Access, you must remember that they are really set for 18 wheelers, which to me makes them easier then most. They are lacking in a few states,
but are working on that.

A simple phone call will get you the answer. If you will be needing fuel on the weekend, call on Friday as the price doesn't change on Saturday or Sunday.

I have found it best to call anyway. Sometimes they are way over priced, most of the time they are in line with the truck stops. I have found them to be as much as 20 cents higher and some are 10 cents lower. It depends on when they take delivery of the fuel and what the rack price is when they buy it.

Overall, I have saved money by using them, but you do have to watch.

Each location is independent and you are required to use 2,400 gal. a year.
The price is marked up from that days fuel costs.
They say the stations are for commercial use. How does this apply to an RV?

When I contacted them I said I might not use 200 gal a month. I was told that was ok. I wanted to try e85 in Tahoe
And holiday rambler is a Gasser. Pacific pride is very close to my home
Looked clean. Lots of room for a motorhome also. Said Ne monthly fees and no fees to start up. Steve

They don't enforce the minimum, and they'll open an account for a private (RV) user. I got my card this winter, but haven't been out west to use them yet.

I investigated the Pacific Pride near my house. They were privately owned as stated above and the woman said I didn't need to buy the minimum. I checked their prices and found that I could beat their prices by .05 -.08 a gallon at several local stations. I didn't see an advantage, but some may.

I would love to use Pacific Pride because they are not crowded and generally have good access. The only problem is the price. The station that is near me is always 10 to 20 cents more than a local 76 station. This holds true as I travel the US. I always call CJ to get the current price but they are always high.This is probably why their stations are always empty. I will not give up, I will keep my PP card and keep trying.

All you have to do is call Pacific Pride 800 959 3835 and set up an account. As I recall all they needed was a credit card, although they will charge you if you use it rather than sending them a check at the end of the billing period.

I have the PP invoice amount withdrawn from a checking account. No SS# was involved when applying.
