Anyone know if Loves Country Stores have their own brand fuel & therefore their own additives as compared to other brands?? I know they have their own trucks, but have not seen anything about the brand. I noticed that the Loves brand is not listed on the top tier gasoline retailers list.

That is not important. What is important is when will the convenience stores at the gas stations begin to carry Hostess SuzyQ's again. That should be the burning question. Even more important than the Fiscal Cliff. I'm starting to get a little strung out here.

I don't think this is a local forum issue. Love's is in 40 of the lower 48 states according to map on their site.

Have not seen a Love's truck, but I have seen FLying J (another interstate chain) signage on fuel tankers (deliver to a now extinct Jewel Express) and they don't even have their own brand of fuel last I checked. They generally carry some major brand. Gas is gas.

Well, for what its worth, I saw a Love's tanker pulling out of the Chevron refinery yard in Pascagoula, MS just last week. We do have Love's gas stations here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and I cannot say for certain that the tanker truck was filled at the refinery -- perhaps he was just asking directions ...

This is a local forum topic, there are no so called Loves stations in this area.

nycztony85:

You wrote, as your reply, "ok"

Can you, perhaps, explain your response a little better, perhaps what it is you're saying is "ok". Just for those of us that didn't quite understand your response.

Maybe you'd like to post gas prices? Just asking, that's all. Because that might help your fellow members more than a response such as "ok" will help them.

I agree, the Suzy Q's are more important.

If they move quickly, they could buy some fixer-uppers cheap in New Jersey. Let 'em know, Radar.

Love's does not have it's own refineries, if that's what you're asking. What they have is their own fleet of fuel tankers (not sure the number owned or leased) for branding purposes. I believe they are a buy of local fuel in the manner Pilot-Flying J were before their joint venture with Marathan, and in the same manner Costco and BJ's purchase fuel from local suppliers. Love's fuel meets or exceeds minimum Federal and local standards for the areas they serve.

I had noticed that their premium 91 was about 20 cents cheaper than the conoco down the road from them & that seems odd

Not sure, myself. But, I do know they sell SuzyQ's. That's all I care about.
