At Fuelrite, our mission is simple: provide the best savings for small and large fleets by offering cost-plus (wholesale based) pricing on diesel fuel at retail locations. With over 200 locations in 11 states, we are the largest diesel fuel savings network in the Greater Northeast with three times more locations than all of the national truck stop chains combined. Many of our sites are independently owned and located where there are no major truck stop chains.
Our fuel savings network offers all of the security, controls, reporting, and tracking that you need 24/7/365 to manage your fleet. We do all of this without charging our customers any fees. No minimums, no card fees, no transaction fees, no target volumes, no annual fee, no fees-ever.
