I got one last week and only get 3 c off per gallon. If you want the 5c discount you need to get their credit card

Make sure when you're at the pump you select "reefer" fuel in order to get the pump to work. Otherwise you need to punch in the ICC number which you don't have.

It's the reefer fuel I want? I was at a Flying J a couple of weeks ago and it confused the heck out of me. Probably got red dyed, not taxed, over sulfered fuel at twice the cost because I didn't select reefer? The pump attendant just turned it on.

I've been trying to figure out the difference between the Tractor and Reefer fuels, some say its the same furl but taxed differently, others say that the Reefer mix is for off road.
Does anyone know?

It's the same fuel out of the same pipe. They only have refer fuel for the RV's because otherwise you'd have to put in their computer system the tractor number, mileage and driver number. It's just their computer system that is intended to help keep the drivers honest and keep track of their miles which is required by the trucking companies.

Interesting Cetane #s

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey i was doing some research on getting a VW TDI an came across this info


not sure if it applies to our engines i dont know enough about cetane and how it does its job but figure ill pass it on



***Cetane levels by fuel company. To ensure accuracy if you have a level to add to the list please forward an email from a corporate office to me, and I will add it to the list. Please bear in mind that the current minimum from refiners in North America is 40. Depending on the quality of the oil used as well as refining processes you'll find 40-42 from refiners in the US and Canada. Anything above that has to do with specific companies additive packages. When companies give a minimum value then it will be listed as a single number. When a company gives a range of numbers bear in mind that more often than not you'll probably find the lower number rather than the higher number. If 40 is listed then it generally means that fuel is bought as is from the refiner--if someone messes up and doesn't put in enough additive at the refinery then that can cause major problems for your fuel system. It's recommended therefore that if you get the inexpensive fuel with low cetane you use a cetane booster (PowerService, Redline 85+ or Stanadyne are all great choices), or run a little biodiesel in the tank. If something higher than 42 is listed then the retailer adds their own additive package in addition to the standard refinery additive package. Generally speaking as long as 49 or higher is listed you do not need to worry about adding any additives yourself.

BP (Amoco branded), 51;
Chevron, 49;
PetroCanada, 47-51
Marathon, 45-47
BP (Powerblend 47, otherwise 40-42)
Shell, 46;
Sinclair, 46;
Sunoco Gold, 45 (often +1-5) Sunoco regular is usually 40.
Holiday Stations, 40-43
HESS, 40-42, can be up to 45.
Husky, 40 + diesel Max additives raise another 1-3 from there (41-45 max)
Love's: 40
Pilot: 40
Valero: 40
Flying J, 40

Hey Dave, not sure if we're using the same discount card, but I use the GoodSam/Pilot-Flying J to get the 8 cents per gal discount. Oh, by the way I always select Tractor Fuel and haven't had a problem. Pull up to the pump,swipe my card, enter my pin, select tractor fuel, skip the DEF, pump my fuel and leave. Do't have to go inside unless I want a receipt, I generally mark it into my little travel book as I don't want to waste time wainting inside for it.

A good web site to check when you're looking for fuel is gasbuddy.com. You can check fuel prices in whatever area you are in. I can than decide if I want to use someplace I have a discount card for or hit a station where I can get a cheaper price without using a discount card. Especially if I can use a credit card that gives me 3-5% cash back rewards. There is also an app for your I pad or I phone.

I saw some tax refund forms online for Reefer fuel. I don't remember what state, but as I understood, if you are at a fuel station that does not segregate pumps for the Reefer, you can get a tax credit for the reefer fuel.

It made me wonder if some states tax different for the fuels. I think it was South Dakota or Nebraska that had red dyed fuel for farm equipment that was not taxed, and if they found the red dye in your 18-wheeler fuel fill you were busted. I don't know if they do that anymore.

They do this with farmers who bought fuel for equipment that never were used for roads. The refer fuel doesn't have dye in it.

For some reason mine only works when I use the refer fuel button.

rcflame, you're right! I use gasbuddy.comall the time onthe iPAD when traveling... but mostly once the Redwood is detatched.

Some of those cheaper stations are in really "tight" areas away from the highway. I pulled most of the wayinto onewith the Redwood once... but, of course, that's another story :-).

It RV PLUS through Good Sam Club. a Pilot/ Flying J fuel credit card for use at Pilot or Flying J. by having this card, you get discounts. this is for Good Sam members only. for example, we are life members of Good Sam so we get .08 off the cash price of diesel by using the fuel credit card and there are no fees. go to the Good Sam web site for info.
