    Currently we use FleetOne fuel cards. We use to have TCH and FleetOne, but because of how difficult TCH was to work with, we went completely FleetOne. Also, TCH's after hours help was basically non existant. We didn't have it for too long, so maybe it was just a bad couple months they had, but they didn't do what we needed, so we went another direction.

    So... what does everyone use, why, and what kind of discount do you get with it?

    Thanks!

    I liked Fleet One when I was last on the road, cash price, easy billing, no transaction fee. Use anywhere except the 'J". However another poster on here says he gets charged a transaction fee.

    I drive for a little company based out of Arlington, TX and I do not receive any discount on the fuel I purchase. We use a Fleet One Card and they also charge me 1.5% on the total amount spent on fuel each week. I think there is something wrong with this picture and it dosent sound right to me. Does anyone know any of the facts on this? 1.5% x 4(weeks) = 6% on the money I spend on fuel each week. Is that right?

    They say that is what they pay Fleet One. They charge it to me not Fleet One. It shows on my settlement every week.

    The company I lease on to has comdata fuel card, I also have my own fleet one card.

    I get the more discounts with Comdata fuel card then with fleet one.

    With Comdata I get cash price at the pump with all venders and get another 3 to 9 cents off the cash price discount.

    Yes they do charge an 2.00 charge very time you swipe the card.

    I can use it for oil change, repaires and all cat scales which is free ..... They charge 2.00 dollars for every swipe you do on the card.

    Yes, if you open an account and you not use them. There is $25 monthly maintenance fee.
    The same thing Fleet One do.
    TCH none, but they have $1.8 card swipe fee.
