Hey everyone,

I am credit card shopping, and I am looking for a credit card that has a fuel friendly rewards program.

IDK if it matters, but my fleet is entirely diesel except for 1 pickup. Most credit cards advertise "2 percent on gas" I assume that includes diesel, as the card just recognizes "fuel purchased at a station" or does it recognize fuel type?

anyhow, I pay my cards off monthly, so interest doesnt matter. I would prefer a cash back card, rather than one that you earn points only redeemable at that site.

I will be only be using this for my part time hot-shotting business (trucking with a pickup truck, hauling small loads) so I am only going to be putting vehicle related expenses and fuel on it (anything tax deductable). I buy alot of parts online if thats a factor.

I signed up for a discover more card, and apparently after Jan. 1st, the program changed, and fuel is no longer a part of the program, so I am seeing what all is out there.

any input greatly appreciated,
thank you!

Probably the best thing out there is the Bank of America Cash Rewards credit card. 3% on gas (don't know if they specifically exclude Diesel fuel).

If you do a lot of shopping at stand-alone supermarkets that accept American Express, you will be better off with the American Express Blue Cash Preferred credit card. $75 annual fee but then I got $625 in rebates using it during 2012. 6% rebate on the first $6000 at stand-alone supermarkets, 3% for fuel and department store purchases, 1% for everything else.

Some of the rotating-category cards offer 5% off during certain calendar quarters for fuel.
