    Does anyone use gas cards to but gas/fuel straight from the pump. Right now we buy in bulk, and everybody refuels from company tanks. My problem is even though we buy in bulk, we still can not buy it cheaper than at the pump. I would probally only do this for supervisor's not mowing or landscape trucks.
    Any suggestions?

    Best find every way possible to save money. I just heard a news release/discussion suggesting that gas prices by mid summer will be in the $3 range. Also, a question ...what quality of gas do you put in mowers === and what quality do you put in 2 cycles?

    I've been thinking about getting a shell gas card.

    5% rebates on shell gas purchases (which would save about 7ยข/gal right now).

    No annual fee if you make 9+ purchases in a year.

    Sounds like a good deal to me.

    Rebates are for gas only though, not diesel.


    More info here.
