RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

I give up. I guess I'm done here. This is a perfect example why I don't post here anymore. I should have known better. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

Thanks for some of the suggestions but I am not looking for grocery stores to shop at for gas discounts. I ask about credit cards, so PLEASE keep the posts to that topic. That is what drives me crazy trying to get information on this forum. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

5.25 BOA cash on fuel. use it anywhere. If BOA gave me 100% cash back I would not do business with them. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

As to the PenFed card, I have already applied for and been approved for (took 5 minutes) a Wells Fargo visa that offers the same cash back and same terms as the PenFed card. So they would be redundant. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

You're in Florida, so I'll bet you shop Publix, at least occasionally. When Publix has gas card weekends, they offer $50 gas cards for $40 with a minimum $50 grocery purchase. That's a 20% savings --- with gas at $5.00 per gallon, that equates to about $1.00 per gallon discount. We buy BOGO's (which also count towards your $50 minimum purchase), and it ends up being a win-win. You've got to be a savvy shopper to get deals at Publix, because yes, on many items they are the higher-priced alternative to other stores. You can actually purchase one card for each $50 spent, so if you tally up $100, you can buy two cards, and so on. In our area the 3 main gas cards they sell are Shell, Mobil, and RaceTrac. Yep. Wife gets those every chance she can. But we can't shop at Publix while driving around the country. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

Good Sam Pilot/Flying J cards offer one to three cents per gallon depending on the station. And in many stations, we could not get the card to work. Cut it into little pieces. Chuck

RE: Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

Cards for diesel only really don't help me much but may be helpful to others. I cut up my Good Sam card after it became more of a hassle than the few pennies we saved. The discount is about a penny a gallon and the problems trying to even use the card was just not worth it. Chuck

Credit Cards For Fuel Discounts

All of us are concerned with current high fuel prices. I have been trying to research using credit cards for either cash back or discounts at the pump to help save some money on fuel. What I'm finding is very confusing and doesn't really give me any definitive answers. So I thought I would go directly to the source. Those that are currently using cards for that very reason. So what are you all using to get the most discounts for your fuel purchases. I am not interested in getting any kind of rewards points. I'm specifically looking for discounts at the pump or cash back for gas purchases. What say you? Chuck

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I have posted a few times but after the snarky responses and a multitude of answers to questions I never asked. I have pretty much given up here. There are other forums out there that have people willing to respond with answers that actually pertain to my post. So that's where I go for help or information. Chuck Hey Chuckbear--- can you list some of the other forums.... thanks Joe, this will probably get removed but if you see it quick enough, one is here and the other is here. Chuck

Chuck Well Chuckbear, Let me save you a lot of time and possible curiosity. Don't post a question of any technical or important knowledge on Farce Book. You will get: Lots of fast answers 60% wrong answers 5~10% actual correct answers that may be obtuse 30% answers that do not relate to the posted question 20% trying to make your question sound stupid This is why the only thing I post on FB is RTM. Matt Well, Matt, your post is a perfect example of which I speak. I don't know what Farce Book is and doubt I would ever post there. Nor do I remember asking anyone about posting on Farce Book, whatever that is. Chuck

RE: Hot Exhaust On Differential

Drove over 120 miles today and stopped at a Rest Stop. I took an IR reading on the housing. It was 215 degrees right around the U-Joint and less on the rest of the housing. I took a second reading after 225 miles and the reading was the same. I suspect this is not unusual for a fully loaded 34-foot motor home towing a car. I still plan to put either a turndown or 90 degree when we get to our destination tomorrow. Chuck

That was yesterday. Today only 220 miles. Chuck

RE: Hot Exhaust On Differential

Chuck, Find a big parts store or a real exhaust shop. If you can't hit the later, get a piece of flexible exhaust and bent it away. The heat of the exhaust will probably kill the seal in the differential. Matt That sounds like a good idea. Chuck

RE: Hot Exhaust On Differential

I'm on the road trying to get from point A to point B without more delays after sitting in and paying for hotel rooms while the driveshaft was repaired. I didn't say I couldn't find a muffler shop. And the average muffler shop will not work on a Class A motorhome. I ask if there would be a problem with the hot exhaust on the differential. I didn't ask where a muffler shop is. Maybe you need to reread my initial post. Chuck

Hot Exhaust On Differential

For anyone that has not seen my current thread on the driveshaft issue, we hit some road debris that tore off the exhaust tailpipe and did major damage to the drive shaft. After 4 days the driveshaft has been replaced and we drove over 200 miles today and so far, no issues. However, the tailpipe is still gone since the repair shop does not do exhaust work. We still have another 600 miles to go and no place to fix the exhaust so we need to drive it without the tailpipe. With the tailpipe gone the exhaust is pointing at the differential about 3 feet in front of it. So I'm wondering if there might be a problem with hot exhaust blowing at the differential even at 3 feet away? For those that might be concerned, there is no exhaust coming in the coach. Chuck

RE: Road Debris Damage

And we know that how? Chuck

RE: Road Debris Damage

The drive shaft was seriously damaged and the rv was towed to the shop. They are only one of two anywhere near where we are that can make the repairs. So we have no choice but to have them repair it. I fully expect the repair cost to be major. The biggest problem is we don’t know how long it will take and we need to find accommodations during all this. I’m also sure the cost will be well above our deductible. Chuck If you knew that before you posted it really should not have been difficult decision to call your insurance company. If not this, what are you paying for? Well, thanks. That was very helpful. Chuck
