    Has anyone seen the legendary Fuel Finder map?

    Uber advertises their wonderful fuel card with claims you can save up to 15 cents a gallon on gas, just use that awesome Fuel Finder map and start saving!

    so, ummm, where is it?

    Ive been told by old timer drivers they somehow managed to procure (and still use) an Uber-arranged credit card (NOT fuel debit) that gets them 10% off /cashback on ALL gas stations and gas station convenience store purchases....

    What I've heard is that they sometimes hold from taking the charges out of your account for two or three weeks then suddenly Bam you wake up to a negative $500 or however amount.

    Have had this happen- albeit not to this amount.

    Mind you I'm fully aware "I'd have to have laid it anyways"


    But waking up and seeing that i OWE uber money leaves a dirty taste. It's hard not to feel like you're working to climb out of a home with a big fat negative number for your earnings, even if st the end for the week you'd have the same amount in your account you'd have anyways.

    A huge part of uber is it fits my schedule. When you're in the red you feel obligated to drive. Probably exactly why they let this **** happen.

    I no longer use this card

    I save .05 at shell with their gas rewards. I've used the Uber fuel card and it doesn't save me anymore than Shell has. It also tends to lag with posting. Which is good and bad. Depending on how crappy your financials are.

    Chevron gives you cents off for Pavilions and Vons purchases(I usually have .10 or .20/gallon)

    Shell is Ralphs.

    The 15cent off stations are usually Exxon Mobil and are priced 30cents higher than anywhere else so kinda pointless. The 7-11 stations near me are in the 2.55-2.70 range

    Hey thanks Big Wig!

    That's what I was thinking, they probably give the biggest discounts at the ripoff places.
