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.
