    It was that way when I started there five years ago. Nothing new.

    Can anyone tell me if May is STILL doing the 40 gal splash of fuel? I'm concerned about them cutting it so close and that 40 gal won't even get me a shower. If it is going to cost me $10-$12 every couple of days then that would push their compensation package well below some of the others that I'm looking at.

    I did search, but I did not find anything recent, as in 2014 recent.

    Thanks!

    I haven't had one of those. Outside of May terminals, the least amount they have ever allocated to me has been 100 gallons.

    If you wait just a minute, however, a disgruntled, former May driver will say otherwise.

    I used to get 50 gallons, but the pump auto shuts down at 47 to 48 gallons.

    Depends on your DM I had a DM that did that along with some other stuff I didn't agree with , now I have a new DM that knows what she's doing.

    That's a true story.

    My DM had me fuel 3 times in a day.

    If you are within reasonable distance from a cheaper stop on the fuel map you will maybe grab 25 gallons to hold you over until the next destination.
