    Are there any truck stops that give shower credits for unleaded gas that is bought? I know most only do diesel.
    Since alot of expedite vans are gas and not diesel.

    Yes Pilot/Flying J give half credit for one tank. Most trips my wife and I ran two tanks and we had a shower.

      PFJ gives shower credits on gas. 14 gallons gets you half a shower credit.

      Another option is getting a membership at a nation wide gym like Anytime Fitness and Planet Fitness. I have a membership with Anytime Fitness and it takes 1 month for your key to work at all locations, but after that if you want to take a shower at 2am, you’re good to go. Also free wifi.

      Pilot/Flying J only place I know of and I basically get one or 1 and a half total shower credits by the time I am finished with a run each day. 14 gallons of unleaded gets .5 credits and 28 gallons gets 1 total shower credit. Unlike diesel "Shower Power" credits, these credits expire in 7? Days if I remember correctly but they should keep up to where you have at least 3-6 available shower credits each week. If NOT you could always ask a fellow van or truck driver if they can spare you a shower with their credits if you are not afraid to ask but you should not need to go this route unless you have had a really bad/slow couple of weeks which is not totally impossible.

      Shower credits at PFJ expire in 10 days, gas or diesel. TA/Petro shower credit last 14 days but with 60 gallons of diesel.
