Default Refueling @ Flying J truck islands

When I refuel at Flying J, I always use the truck islands. My procedure is terry goes inside with cash in hand. They turn on the pump, I fill up and then terry returns with change. I would like to cut a little time off this process by using my Flying J RV card to start the pump while terry is on the way inside.

I have tried a couple of times to use the card at the pump but I am presented with a couple of screens that I have to select certain options in order to start the pump. I cannot figure out the options to select to start the pump and do not want to spend an excess amount of time at the pump trying to figure out what to select. Perhaps someone who knows what options are required for an RV to start the pump could enlighten me as to what I need to select or direct me to where I can get this information.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

I do start the pump with the card and I think that you must choose between refer or truck fuel or both,I choose truck,then it states that you must go inside to pay after fueling,the screens are like 1980 computers,they are very slow.

I hate the dirt and grim around all truck stops... wearing booties and gloves is the only way. Always leave CC inside while fueling unless you know within 20 gallons how much you will need. Always a bad experience getting fuel. Dirty and nasty......

Gotta agree with you Matt. I always feel like I need a shower after using the truck pumps. Glad I don't have carpet!
Thankfully we don't need to fuel up very often.

having the RV Card is great. You have to select tractor or refer fuel at some places. You obviously want tractor fuel. The RV Card also gives you 3 cents off the cash price, but only if you use it at the pump.

They just came out with the RC Charge card that will give 6 cents off the cash price if you are a Good Sam member.

Forgot to ask if your card is set up for pump start?

The older truck stops are the worse on being dirty and some are just plain nasty. The nicer newer truck stops aren't too bad... But I hear you stopping to fuel up at truck stops isn't pretty!
