Where do I find a discount fuel card?

I am close to leaving the company I currently lease to am contemplating getting my own authority. I currently have a fuel card that gives me some good discounts at the big name truck stops. Are there any options for fuel purchases by a single truck operator that come with discounts?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Call 800-264-8580 NASTC. National Assn for small trucking companies. Talk to Bobby Copeland. I joined yesterday, the annual fee is $250. You will be pooled into about 50,000 trucks for a group savings.There members save an average of 15 cpg on fuel depending on the daily market. Yesterday it was pretty much 40 cents difference across the board between pump and there price. They charge no transaction fees.

The good thing is most truckstop are on the list of approved stops. All ta/Petro locations are listed and they offer some other good shop discounts. I'm not a fan of FlyingJ and pilot,they are not on the list.

Please tell Bobby that Jeff Chism give you this info because they have a referral program that goes towards free membership.

Good luck;

Jeff

I don't have my own authority I just have the carriers fuel card. I get cash price at the pump. Is there a fuel program that I can get into and get a discount without having my own authority?

It isn't a discount card, but their prices are lower than the truck stops in my experience. I have yet to find the truck stops near where I fuel at a Pacific Pride station even come close to matching the Pacific Pride price. Pacific Pride is usually 15 to 20 cents lower than the cash price of the truck stops. (based on my experience when I've checked in Harrisburg, PA area)

I use Pacific Pride. It's a commercial fueling brand with many truck accessible fueling locations (info is available on their website...some sites aren't for trucks).

In south central PA (Lancaster/Harrisburg/Carlisle area), where I normally fuel, I usually pay around 15 to 20 cents less than the cash price at the truck stops in the area.

There is no fee to get, or maintain, a card. If you fuel at a franchise other than the one your card is through there is some sort of additional transaction fee, but it still won't be as expensive as buying fuel at the truck stop. So it's best to get your card through a franchisee from where you will buy most of your fuel. But either way you're probably going to spend less than buying it at a truck stop even with a discount card.

I also get an additional discount (I think 2 cents per gallon) when I pay my monthly bill within 15 days. Which isn't hard since I set up automatic payment.

My card is through Worley & Obetz since they have locations in Middletown, Elizabethtown, and Lancaster, PA. Places I drive through very often. You can find a franchisee near you on the pacificpride.com website.

My rant about NASTC...

Everyone that joins NASTC does so for the fuel card. However, NASTC has some huge hurdles in the way of joining to get that card.

To get the NASTC fuel card you have to join NASTC which requires you attend a mandatory "class" in person that is held once a month in TN and some truck shows. That right there is a huge cost and inconvenience. Then you have to pay a $250 fee for the card. So, even if you paid the same amount using a NASTC discount card don't forget to factor in the $250 fee plus the expense of attending the mandatory "class" (according to other members of letstruck.com the mandatory "class" is nothing more than a sales pitch for their other offerings and wasn't found to be useful. search nastc and other key words in the forums).

End of rant.

Something else for small business or fleet to look into (I don't know anything about this, just sharing the link) http://www.wrightexpress.com/small-busin...

With NASTC's Fleet One Card, Leased on O/Os don't have to take classes and all is required is a copy of a signed lease page to a carrier if that helps anybody who wants to join without the classes.....hint hint

Good to know. I wonder if I can tell them I leased on to my own company.

Contact OOIDA...http://www.ooida.com/

I believe that they have a discount fuel card program for their members.

Last time I checked OOIDA's fuel program, it was for the smaller mom & pop locations and they did not appear to offer much of a discount. Maybe they have changed, I doubt it though.

Jeffchism is right on. I have been using Fleet One through NASTC for 2 years. The discount varies, since you are purchasing fuel on what they call "cost plus". In addition you can use Fleet One checks to pay for lumper and repair bills. They are accepted ust like Comdata checks. NASTC can also help you get set up with your own authority.

NASTC!!!!!!!! You make the $250 fee back within the first two months if not sooner.

Maybe. Maybe not. Don't forget to factor in the cost of having to attend the mandatory class in person.

Just as one example, if I had a NASTC fuel card I still would not have got my moneys worth since they haven't been beating Pacific Pride's prices.

I'm not against NASTC even though I don't like their requirement to attend that "class."

NASTC is a good option if you insist on only buying your fuel at truck stops. But just like everything else at a truck stop, if you can find it somewhere else you probably found a better price too.

They just need a copy of a signed lease agreement no matter how old it is.

Look into Trucker B2B. I use fleet one and get a rebate check every month. They have rebate programs for many items.

Maybe it will work for you.

The program OOIDA uses requires good credit. You can get a card by prepaying though.
