What are your best tips and ideas for saving on gas / fuel costs? Other than the obvious to just not drive as much. Do you use a membership card? Which one is best? Is buying gas at certain locations or time of the week a benefit? Any suggestions to us for keeping one of our biggest expense down.
I see that our Good Sam membership affords fuel discounts at "select" Pilot & Flying J truck stops. I'm curious what your experience has been in getting these discounts. On the Flying J website, they show a list of participating locations. Only the Yuma AZ is listed... seems pretty limited. http://images.goodsam.com/goodsamclub/pfj/pfj_diesel_discounts_2017.pdf Also, do you need to have a Pilot or Flying J credit card, or can you just use your GS membership card with a debit/credit card?
So like others who are pulling an RV, I'd like to add an auxiliary diesel fuel tank to my 2016 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie dually. I've identified a tank I'd like....and RDS from Northern Tool. But I'm having a difficult time finding a shop that will install it. Neither my local mechanic or dealership will take on the work. I've consulted with several friends in the area that are known to have made custom mods on their "toys" and got nothing regarding referrals. So since my salesman, who I got the truck from is a good friend, I asked him "Why am I having such a hard time?". He said there are few willing to do it anymore since DOT regulations and the liability associated with leaks and spills are not worth it. Still, he has a contact or two that he is going to ask, but suggested I take to the forums for help. I do have one friend who did the same to his Dodge truck and can use his mechanic, but that's 90 mins away and am trying to avoid the trip if not needed. If I do need to travel, then so be it. What am I missing? Are others who have been thru this finding the same challenges? I live in north central Ohio on Lake Erie, so anyone with recommendations in the Amherst, Vermillion, Huron, Sandusky, Norwalk or Port Clinton area would be appreciated.
