Whenever I find something that is really helpful for my fellow RVers, I try to get the word out quickly. And this is one of those times that I can help you save lots of money on RV diesel fuel.
A relatively new RV fuel station discount card is available for RV owners driving diesel engines. And the word is that the savings on diesel fuel is really dramatic.
Marc and Julie Bennet are one of the top RV bloggers and YouTubers in this industry. I have been following them for some time because they are genuinely helpful and glad to share their RV knowledge with everyone.
And they just made a recent blog post and YouTube video on this new RV fuel discount card program. I asked them if I could pass on the savings to my blog readers and they said that would be great.
The Bennets wrote one of the best books about the RV lifestyle we’ve seen. And we got it as soon as it was released. I loved it so much that I gave it a 5 star review on Amazon.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about RVing. There is something here for everyone from newbies to experienced RV owners.

Fuel Discount Program Details
The company who runs this RV fuel station discount program is TSD Logistics, a trucking company whose main office is in Texarkana, TX. They have a fleet of 115 trucks.
Of course, it’s no secret that over-the-road truckers often get special discounts on fuel prices. Especially at certain national fuel station chains. And TSD Logistics wants to lower its fuel costs but doesn’t want to add more trucks to its fleet to do that.
So they decided to open their fuel discount program to include RVers. This allows the company to reap the rewards of buying fuel in higher volume. But they are able to keep their costs the same.
It’s pretty ingenious really. And as RV owners we all benefit as well. It’s a win-win for everyone.
In fact, as more RVers join the program, the company is able to buy diesel fuel at even better volume discounted prices. This means that the cost of RV diesel fuel can continue to drop even further at the pump as more people join the program.
The only limitation is the discount is only available on diesel fuel. If your RV burns regular gas, this program will not work for you.
How To Use The RV Fuel Station Discount Card
To join the program you need to apply to TSD Logistics for their card. Usually it arrives in about 3 – 4 weeks, although there are ways to get it sooner.
Our experience with applying for the card was that we received the card in the mail just two weeks after applying. Of course, you may get different results depending on how busy they are filling existing card request applications when you apply.
When you receive your card, download their EFS card app and pair it with your card. This is actually a very simple process. I had it completed in about 5 minutes.
Now you can search for fuel stations near you that accept the TSD discount program on your phone or tablet. When you find the best price in your area, go to that station and pull into the truck lane section for fuel.
Once at the pump, insert the card into the fuel pump and fill your tank. When you are done, the whole transaction will appear on your EFS card app.
The next day the amount of the transaction will be deducted from your bank account. To cover the costs associated with running a program of this size, TSD Logistics will take a small fee. The fee is 10% of the total discount you received.
So if you received a .60 per gallon discount, they will take .06 per gallon for program maintenance. That still leaves you with a savings of .54 per gallon!
The average savings per gallon according to TSD Logistics is about .40 – .60 per gallon. But Marc and Julie Bennett experienced some savings as high as .85 per gallon. This is not chump change.
This is especially true if you have a large motorhome and go through lots of diesel fuel. There are other RV fuel discount programs out there, but not much with this kind of real-world savings. And it is usable in over 16,000 locations throughout the US!

What Should You Do?
If you haven’t heard of Marc and Julie Bennett, my advice is to visit their page and sign up for their newsletter. You can also watch them on Youtube at this link.
They are always helping out the RV community in one way or another. And you will benefit by following them online too. Here is the link to their webpage where you can get even more details about this RV fuel station card discount program.
From there, I think you would be wise to sign up for the program and start saving on diesel fuel costs as soon as possible.
I have already signed up myself and apparently a backlog of applications is coming in to TSD Logistics quickly. So don’t delay! Here is the link to the TSD Logistics sign-up page.
Just make sure that you credit “RVLove” as the referrer. This makes sure that the Bennets get the credit for introducing you to this program.
The Bennets uploaded a YouTube video that explains the major details about this program as well. You can view it at the link below:
I want to emphasize that I am not affiliated with this program in any way. And I don’t profit by it in any way either if you sign up. It’s just a great deal for all RVers who use diesel fuel.
When you consider that one of the largest monthly expenses for RV travel is the fuel costs for our RVs, this card is a no-brainer. Diesel engines do cost more to maintain than gas engines. And gas costs less at the pump than diesel fuel.
But with this card you can start to close the gap in fuel costs between gas and diesel engines. And who doesn’t want to save money on RV travels and adventures?
