    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?

    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.
