Hey everyone, sort of a weird question but can I get some suggestions medium to large reefer companies that fuel primarily at Pilot/Flying J or give their drivers the option of where to fuel? Pilot/Flying J is my preferred truck stop and I was looking at WEL but from what I've gathered they pretty much seem to fuel at TA/Petro, which isn't a deal breaker but I would like to see what else is out there. Thanks!

I have been around a while and I've seen some weird stuff but I haven't ever witnessed someone prefer to work for a company based on where they fuel. If you don't mind me asking, why is this important to you at all? Seems like such a minor detail.

Honestly it wont help you. Companies change fueking stations all the time in order to negotiate larger discounts. CFI used to use FJ P. And now I think they use loves. Prime fuels everywhere but will send us to where gives us the lowest price at the time.

I'm going to ditto Kearsy's comment. Right now Swift is using flying j which is cool because I've earned shower power, but for a while it was TA or Loves. It all depends on which company is giving the best deal at the moment.

Thanks everyone, didn't realize companies switch it up so often. The reason I ask is because in my experience with the major truck stops (albeit non-trucking experience) Pilot/Flying J seem to be the nicest.

Oh yeah and I almost forgot! The reason I care is because I would like to get the most points at Pilot/Flying J. Probably should've put that in the original post. Whoops, lol

All the major chains of truck stops have rewards points.

They are also some of the nastiest. It all depends on where the stop is located. In my opinion Loves and Petro are the cleanest. Most companies fuel where the best price is and what is on your route. At Roehl we have deals with Pilot/Flying J and TA/Petro and Loves in which we get a discount off the pump price. But we still look for the lowest pump price out of them. Regardless of where you fuel for the most part you pick where you park for the day. Ive fueled at at a Pilot and driven across the street to a Petro to park for the better food options.

You've got a lot more important things to focus on than accruing points at a particular brand of truck stop. You really surprised me with that explanation. confused.gif
