Fuel cards for truck stops

Crazy question. have had problems in the past using debit cards at the truck pumps at truck stops. Always have to pay inside. Question is, is there a fuel card that one can get to pay at the pump without being a CFL truck driver

I use our company fleet card.. Its by Wright Express... and it is 50/50 whether I have to go inside or not.... There seem to be no rhyme or reason as to why I have to go in either ??

The issue may be security. Both my ATM card and credit card stop working as soon as I am out of my area where I live. I have to call them and let them know that I am traveling. What I find ironic is the CC is American Airlines card which implies I travel. It has definitely gotten harder to use the cards while traveling in the last year.

On my last trip to Indiana I stopped in Western PA for fuel,,, I had to go in and leave my card with them , I never have to do that ??? Any way , I filled up and left , yup without the card..
By the way , the card has a pin# , so without it , it's useless.. When I got to Eastern PA and needed more fuel , I said-CRAP. my card... I looked on their big map in the station and found where I was last... I called them and they told me It was reported as a robbery.. since I STOLE FUEL???
.anyway , I called the state police , talked to the officer who went and took the report... he went back to the station ( on the PA Turnpike) gave them my PIN # and paid for my fuel... After that he took my card and mailed it to my house.. complete with a hand written card telling me to have a great day.!!! I like cash...

If your lucky to be in right line there's usually one lane that will accept non trucker CCs, but Im never in that line. Most only accept truck fleet cards/com chek cards. DW hates stopping at truck stops, she doesn't want to operate the nozzle & hates going inside, but she has to do One or the other cause I'm not leaving my card in there with some bimbo/knucklehead behind the counter. We usually wait til we park for the day & then find fuel, most times you can save 10-20 cents per gal by not going to truck stop.

Just another reason to only travel 250-350 miles per day.

I used the Pilot/Flying J card recently mostly successfully. Of about 5 fills, only once did I have to go inside. Plus the discount of 8 cents per gallon.

Yep, the Good Sam Pilot/Flying J Credit Card. I have yet to find a Station that it wouldn't work at. Insert and remove the card, select Tractor Fuel, select DEF or Skip, enter your control number, fuel up and leave. I make note of price and amount of fuel for my records. When my bill is posted I go into the Pilot site and pay my bill.

I concur with the Pilot/Good Sam credit card and rewards. It works at any fuel station that accepts pilot rewards card. I seem to have an easier time getting into and out of a Pilot truck stop than, say Love's

Here is another vote for the Good Sam Pilot/Flying J RV card. Use it all the time with no problems. You do have to go inside to get a receipt if you want one.
