  1. Having read the above problems with the Pilot/Flying J process of using the Frequent Fueler Advantage card I don't feel like the lone ranger. I too pulled into the truck lanes for diesel fuel and had quite a go around with the Pilot/Flying J establishment. I was told to leave my Discover card with the clerk and was asked how much I wanted. I told her that I wanted to fill up. She said how much will that be. I said I don't know as yet. Just leave the pump open until I finish filling the tank. She said that I had to give her a dollar amt. in order for her to turn the pump on. I told her $100.00 knowing that this was insufficient for my needs, but I didn't want to go higher not really knowing how much it would be. After fueling I went back inside to get my discount and was told that there is no discount allowed until I have used 500 gallons. Then the computer would recognize me and then allow the discount. I tried to explain to her just what was explained to at the Perry Rally, but again to no avail. Also, the above post noted that Pilot/Flying J has the highest fuel cost to the public by anywhere from 2 cents to 9 cents per gallon. Bottom line is I personally don't care if I never see another P/FJ. I would just as soon support the little guy. Thanks for this opportunity to express my self concerning an issue that was presented one way at the Perry Rally, but P/FJ was not aware of it.

  3. Great question. Perfect answer. I just purchased my Winny and it was explained to me the same manner as above. I to would have wondered what the proper method would be to start and stop the ginny. I finally got around to reading the manual that of course had the answer. But, it was good that it was pointed out to me prior to running the ginny.
