    I noticed they're building out a bit. What's interesting is most of their stops have fuel prices comparable to what you get with a discount at the big chains. However, sometimes you run across one with an unbeatable price. For example, I paid 3.54 at the one in Minden, NV. That saved me almost 50 cents over my TVC price at the Petro in Sparks. Also I remember going through Utah on 15 once. Passed a few Maveriks with regular prices, and suddenly there's one with a dramatically lower price. Anyone fuel there regularly and have any opinions on fuel quality or anything? I'd recommend downloading their app, its the only place I could look up prices accurately. And their free rewards card saves you and extra 2 cents a gallon.

    Maverick is owned by FJ management, they are also shareholders of Pilot/Flying J along with Berkshire Hathaway. The Maverick chain was started by a Call family member, uncle if memory serves me. The same Call family that started the Flying J brand. Think the family still has TABbank and the refinery ownership as well.

    Maverick stores that have diesel fuel/truck lanes take all fuel cards Except Commdata. If you have a reward card, you can get a discount, if you use their fuel card, you get even bigger discount.

    Maverick is geared more toward the car and pick up crowd.

    Maverick bought the Kum & Go chain last year, so they definitely are after the car travelers.

    I've seen a couple mavericks with truck fuel but there was little truck parking there.

    Maverick locations rarely have any truck parking. Some do, maybe 8 to 10. They are few and far between. They are definitely a fuel and go place. They do have some reasonable food items, if you’re looking for a quick bite. Most food is prepared/assembled at the location.

    I work Utah, NV and Idaho. Truck fueling locations are relatively new. No parking with just a couple of exceptions. But I fuel exclusively with them. I have their club card saves $.02 off the posted prices. Food and bathrooms almost always better than other truck stops I've been too. And the rewards points have decent paybacks in free food and gift cards. I'm company driver so don't pay fuel bill, but I know company likes the savings.... I like the food and points.
