    I've been using Loves exclusively for quite some time. I enjoy their consistency, rewards, and modern facilities, and but recently On TVC, the discount for TA has widened from around 5 cents to 10, so I decided to switch to TA for a change. Well I'm a month in and I'm already considering going back to Loves despite the discount. It seems like every TA is either completely run down, has half of the pumps closed, card readers or keypads that don't work, parking lots full of craters, and last night there was a diesel leak so bad, the entire fuel island area had a pool of diesel. I thought it was melted snow, but ended up getting diesel on my floor because I had to walk in it to fuel. For a company owned by BP, they sure don't seem interested in investing and upgrading much, unlike Loves.

    I feel your pain!
    I’ve been using TA/Petro for around 5-6 years exclusively.

    I guess I’ve just learned which ones are decent enough and which ones to avoid like the plague.

    If you could entertain me with a price check I’d really appreciate it. Not sure what your TVM fuel account is but I use nastc and would like to compare the discounts in real time.

    If you could please pick any TA and give me the location and today’s price after your discount. Not happy these days with nastc so I’m searching for some other options.

    I just fueled at the Petro in Milan, NM for 3.588.
    Albuquerque TA shows 3.599 and Moriarty 3.592.

    I've been using TVC for a while. And I've compared prices to quite a few other services. I have yet to find one that gets consistently lower prices. Even factoring in the 2.75 or so use fee each pump and the 1% load fee.

    Pretty comperable. Im not a huge fan of having to load money on my card days in advance to avoid bigger fees, but I haven't really seen anything that has motivated me enough to switch yet. Mudflap seems to be getting popular, and I haven't looked into them yet. One thing that TVC is behind on is not having the option to show fuel prices minus tax.
     
    Concorde Thanks this.

    That’s $0.20 less than I would pay today.
    I’m going to look into it. Got my drug testing consortium through nastc so I got to figure this out before I bail on them.
