    The last three runs I had, I had a fuel stop at either a T/A or Petro. Is there a reason why?

    I know I once got bad batch of fuel at the Flying J in Carlisle, PA, and had to have the filter changed on the road (chugging down the interstate at 20mph dosen't cut it for me).

    Could it be that we're switching over because of more instances of bad fuel at these Pilots and Flying J's? Or we somehow get better discounts at T/A or Petro?

    I asked the fuel desk this morning about that, they told me T/A was offering discounts again back to P.A.M..

    The last three stops for me have been Pilot. Maybe they are just spreading the wealth..

    I've been at the Petro a lot lately; in fact last three times, two of them in the same day. The Petro, btw, that *doesn't* sell DEF, causing me to almost run out.

    I am not a big fan of the Petros.

    I am a big fan of larger parking areas and better showers.
    And sometimes you can get lot lizard service at the bigger Petro/ T/A's... LOL

    Yeah. Not really a big draw for me...... Lol.

    I usually choose Pilot to land at; for some reason they are often the last to fill. And they stock my addiction, vanilla Pepsi, which IS a big draw for me. :-D

    They are usually the last to fill because everyone is trying to cram in to the petro/TA's because of the nicer showers. ;)
