Fuel Discount Program

They can easily see an average savings at the pump of $75 - $100 per fill up, all depending on the size of their fuel tank and how much they are putting in. In some cases, they see discounts as high as $200+ on a single fill up​! This amounts to huge savings in operational cost​.
