Diesel from Samís Club?

Because I have seen the accounts of what bad diesel can do to the trucks, I was wondering about the diesel from Samís Club. It almost always has the lowest price in my area based on Gas Buddy. Is it decent quality and safe?
Btw wth are the present prices for diesel due to?

I've used Sam's Club diesel a few times. I haven't had any issues with it and haven't seen any water in the fuel. I may start using them more often as they seem to sell more fuel than the Shell stations nearby and it's easier to get in and out of their station if I have my RV trailer connected.

In many cases Sam's Club diesel pumps are used by local contractors and business owners and thus likely pump as much or more diesel than the average station. At least the one near me does. I have a business membership and buy much of my diesel there for that reason. I recently got a Gas Buddy card and haven't tried to use it there. I know it works at WalMart.

How did you get a Gas Buddy card, and how does it work ? On the app, there is nothing on there regarding a cardó something about saving 5 cents a gallon but it links into your checking account. Donít want to do that, but havenít seen anything about a card that could be used at Samís

Several stories popping up in the news today about Sam's Clubs all over the country closing for good.
Maybe I should get over there and get that pallet of toilet paper before it's too late!

If you want to save some $$ on fuel, get a PNC Bank Cash Rewards Visa card. You get 4% cash back on fuel (gasoline, diesel). Combine that with a rewards card and it pays off.

Rolled into the Diesel pump at Sam's Club in Lubbock Texas watched a 18 wheeler roll out, and one rolled in behind me. Walked over to the guy and he told me 'hell yea' cheaper than any other out there.

Then as he started to pay with his CC I asked him about a Wal Mart Gift card for payment? HUH??

Yea, I buy a Walmart gift card (which is free) with my CC and using the Walmart gift card at a Sam's club pump that day I got 5 cents off per gal. It does vary from zero discount to as much as 10 cents, usually around 3 - 5 cents.

Wal-Mart is great and it is the only place I will buy my oil and other automotive fluids that they sell. Way cheaper than anywhere else. I have got fuel at Sams and Wal-Mart gas stations with no issues.

It's a corporation that provides such poor pay and benefits to it's employees that a huge percentage of them have to be on public assistance to survive. Less money to the employee requiring the employee to survive off welfare=Walmart is a welfare corporation. Look at company's like costco. They pay their employees incredibly well, great benefits, save the consumer money, and don't give their CEO a crazy big bonus. Costco=Not a welfare corporation.

I refuse to shop at a corporation that undercuts all the small businesses in town by paying their employees a pittance. I'd rather pay more somewhere else and support jobs that pay people a better wage. I'm guessing you like getting a good wage for what you do.
