    Many of us have and use a diesel fuel tax chart. If you would like a map version... 2017 Fuel Tax Map 4-22-2017.jpg

    It is 8.5 X 11, so it will fit on one page, if printed.

    Fuel is the largest expense after the truck payment. It's extremely important to be aware of IFTA and how it works. If you don't know that the price of the fuel and the cost of the fuel are two different things you haven't done an adequate job of learning your career. It can easily mean keeping an extra $20 bill in your pocket every time you fill or taking it out of your pocket to hand across the counter to pay for the fuel.

    Is there a link of where to download the full size version of that map?

    GasBuddy gives you the price, but you need to figure out the cost by other means. This map is great.

    Updated Map. Current as of today 6/18/17. Michigan and New York changed 5/2017, all others are the same as previous quarter.

    Side note: It looks like TN may be going from $0.17 to $0.21 soon, which could make a difference in fuel planning depending on your route.
