What Ken said......and:

I received my EFS card in mid Sept, a couple days before we left on our round trip from Spokane to So AZ. Bottom line is we saved a tad over $200 on our fuel stops.

Our first stop was in Boardman, Oregon at Loves. Unknowing of their process as an Oregon station my EFS card wouldn’t work at the pump. I went inside and they said all of their truck lanes were set up for PUC diesel. They ran my card and everything worked. One thing I find really ok about Loves is your receipt is in a slot on the fuel desk that corresponds with the pump number. Makes for quick in an out of the store.

A look at diesel prices , that they update daily most of the time, just for info:

Loves in Post Falls, Id, discounts diesel 91 cents per gallon, Flyin J, across the street discounts .80. The two Flyin J stations in Spokane are discounting .80. those two stations are always in the mid to high $3 range. Montana stations usually have lower prices anyway. Loves in Missoula gives .18.

Once you join up you get the daily fuel price updates across the country. The EFS app logs your most recent activity and I think it resets the end of a month. The activity is then transferred to “account activity” in the app. Tap on one of your stops and you will see your total discount.

This is nothing to sneeze at…….and it’s free to join up…in the process they will tell you they will take $200 from your account for cash if you should need cash at a fuel stop. The cash is always yours for you to use.

TSD Logistics is apparently the fuel broker. EFS takes 10% of your fuel savings as their profit. EFS is the card company.

And, it pays to shop around. the discounts are not always the same even within a specific company or state..

Seems like Pilot has stepped up their discounts from early summer. Good news. If I get a great price I will fuel earlier.

Always a good excuse for a rest and stretch.

We used the fuel discount card on our recent trip from home (CHARLESTON SC) TO Sanibel Island, FL.  We filled up twice , 54 and 62 gallons, at pump price of $3,18, with discount, price came out to $2.71 per gallon at Love Truck Stops. Trip was 1200 miles total.   Still need to top off at locate stations, diesel $2.79.

I've fueled three times since getting the TSD card (all in AZ). Saved $87 on 145 gal of fuel. Not too shabby  :)

Hi guys out there who use the discount fuel card.  Is the card just a discount card and not a credit card?  I'd like to get the discount card and not have to use  it as a credit card.  If you have the card does it show where one can use it or do you have to go on line to find the locations?

   Hi Mandy,
    I just got mine in the mail today and will give it a try next week. According to TSD, they request payment from your checking account approx. 3 days after using it. I'll let you know how it works out. Fred

Mandy,
The TSD card is kind of like a debit card in that it debits your checking account for fuel purchases. It is only good for buying diesel fuel and DEF at participating dealers. Additionally it will allow you to get $200 from your account at the truck stop if  you need cash. Most of the major truck stop chains are participating, i.e. Loves, Petro, Pilot/Flying J, TA, etc. When you get your card you can check out all the locations by state. Loves gives the best discounts. I fueled at Loves twice and paid $2.66 vs $3.29 once and $2.71 vs $3.25. At TA I paid $2.70 vs 3.15 posted pump price.

Mandy,
It is a debit card.  It uses the high volume of RV'ers to purchase diesel fuel at truck stops.  You must use the truck lanes.  On our trip from Houston to Phoenix, we saved over $100 on our 3 fill-ups.  There is an app you use to determine locations and costs (approximate, since they are based on the last person who used the card at the stop and the price of diesel when that person purchased fuel).  We were given an account of purchase about 15 minutes after our purchase and a final bill when they debited our account.  The difference was about 1% more for the debit, so that is the way they make money, I guess.
