What I am looking for in this question is what kind of money saving tips do you use? For instance there is a company here in the south called Murphy's that offers a 15 cent discount if you use a murphy's cerdit card. Anyone got any nice savings tips?

Fastrac offers something similar up here in NY, use there credit card that has no fees and interest! Not a bad deal really and save the most on Sundays

You can earn up to $2 per gallon. The best way to get more fuel points is by purchasing gift cards for places you already patronize. Locally, it is 2x the $ amount and during certain times of the year it is 4x the $ amount. Really adds up then.

I fill up at Sams at the end of each day. Here in my area Sams has the best deal on gas.

that's what we do, put it all on a dedicated Sam's discover just for gas and get a decent check back.

I gave up on saving when it comes to fuel, just a part of the busiess we are in so I charge accordingly. I average 8mpg with a trailer and will spend $150 a week in fuel usually.

Any purchase at Fleet Farm and you get a $0.04 off per gallon coupon. Its not much but I get a lot of them from hunting and fishing license purchases, tools, dog food and treats and whatever else and it adds up. Fleet Farm is usually the cheapest price per gallon before the discount anyway.

We buy fuel in bulk, we normally save between .05 and .30 cents per gallon vs. the pump.

I considered the bulk fuel apporach. My dad did this with this Sawmill/logging business.
