And have you noticed tha tyou can't fill up anymore? Stupid pump stops
at $75 which is half a tank! WTF: they *want* me to go to the station
down the street for the second half? (Just a PITA, you can swipe the
That's odd, I've always been able to take two swipes at it. Most places
here have a $100.00 limit per transaction, but when I was in West Texas
(Monahans) last month I ran into a $50.00 limit, really sucked, I had to
take three swipes that time.
My '96 had an Aero replacement tank cut down to ~ 55 gallon capacity and
had a 38 gallon aft axle tank from Transfer flow. $200.00 fillups were not
uncommon. I've moved the 38 gallon tank to my "new" '01 truck but haven't
moved the Aero tank due to additional interference from the six speed,
transfer case and GearVendors. So I'm limping along with just 73 gallons
capacity. Since fuel has gotten so high it doesn't seem quite so bad losing
the other 20 gallons on a fillup.
on a trip to kolo"rad"o a couple of years ago i filled up with fuel just
east of denver and pointed the truck toward the house. i was fairly
dehydrated from skiing all day and not drinking much. the ol lady was tired
and fell asleep immediately. since it is downhill all the way to kansas and
we seemed to have a tail wind i managed to drive 645 miles before our next
stop. that is my personal record. normally we have to stop every quarter
tank in the diesel for a bladder break and every half tank in the gas
around here it was a 50 buck limit for a long time. when fuel prices shot
up then leveled off after hurricane katrina most stations bumped that to
75.00. on my diesel i make it a point to stop at stations where they sell
fuel to trucks. they don't do pull that when dealing with a dirt hauler or
road tractor. recently i had three trucks out on a job that all needed
fuel. we stopped and filled one up and then i reswiped the card for the
second truck. when i swiped the card for the third truck the pump bowed up
and wouldn't accept the card. i switched to another card and it took it
