    Do you pay out of pocket and make it up via pay from hauling the load?

    Do you use a fuel card?

    If you use a fuel card - is it filled by you or your company?

    Do you pay out of a per diem?

    Since I own my truck I pay with a credit card. I get better rewards with a credit card than any fuel card I’ve found. Also most fuel card companies want to have an auto pay system on my bank account. I prefer the money to leave when I want it to.

    Wow! What credit card do you have?

    Do most company drivers just use the card though?

    I’ve been with Capital One for years. Idk what company drivers do. Never been one. I think they usually have a fuel card though. Com data, Fuelman, etc.

    I’m a company driver, I use a company fuel card (Comdata), which I can use at Pilot/Flying J, TA, and Petro. I stick to Pilot/Flying J to earn points, which are redeemable for merchandise and food inside the truck stop.

    The company I work for is finally moving away from ####ing comchecks. What a ####### embarrassment that is.
