They said that it was an extra 7 cents to use a charge card. I was lucky that I got a receipt and that I actually checked it. Many times I don't. I have bought my last gallon of gas there. Just a heads up".
If you pump 5 gal in your cart, you've spent a whopping 35 cents. Lighten up folks. The guy is barely surviving.

Default GasPrice

You pay for convience. When the station was closed people complained they were closed. Now he's open and he charges a little more then those stations on 466 big deal. Stop at Peachwave when your done and the trip is worthwhile. All I know is that he's open, has gas, and it's only around the corner. I go to Publix, Peachwave, Beall's, Cals, etc. Support the station and he'll stay open.

There is a lot of wisdom in this quote! Fruitland Park is REALLY tough on speeders. I always go the speed limit plus one or two in there. Sometimes I get tailgated like crazy but rather that than a ticket..the people who are here all year seem to understand that Fruitland Park is a basic speedtrap. Worse places on 466A are right after the limit drops to 35; the road out to 27/441 after turning at the Marathon Gas Station; and, on the red road.

When you settle in, Bill/Sandy send me a note. We must get together.
