Caltex Truck Stops tend to vary depending on whether they are privately owned (usually close to retail pricing) or Z/Caltex sites where there is usually around a 20c / 25c cheaper pump price. The latter ones can only be accessed by an approved fuel card, whereas the dearer sites can be accessed by ordinary EFT POS and Credit Card transactions.
McKeowns sites have a fixed national price and can be accessed with any credit or cash card. :TU

You can't assume that main stand-alone truck stop diesel prices are always better than forecourt prices.
At Palmerston North Caltex truck stop today 1.299 which is 1c dearer than PNth Caltex forecourts at 1.289 and 5c dearer than Challenge Hokowhitu at 1.249 where I can also get my 12c discount. A year or more ago the truck stop would have been 20c cheaper than the forecourt.
At least now I can check the price before arrival using two Android apps. The Kiwifuels app gives the Caltex truck stop price by clicking on the truck stop (but not forecourt prices) and the Gaspy app gives forecourt prices.
Using this method saved $8 today on a 160l fill and the forecourt was 4km closer.
You do of course have to be small enough to fit on the forecourt ;)

Can you let us know, please, what card you use to get 12c off Challenge? We live next door to Challenge in Rotorua but Mobil always beats them.
