Fuel Card for Owner-Operators
The TCS Fuel Card Was Made for Owner-Operators and Truck Drivers
Fuel cards are often thought to be geared toward trucking companies with more than one truck. The TCS Owner-Operator Fuel Card is different because we give everyone the same great fuel discounts. We want to be the best fuel card for truckers, regardless of how many trucks they have.
Why Use Fuel Cards as an Owner-Operator?
As an owner-operator of a trucking company, you have a lot of jobs. You look for materials to haul. Buy or rent trucks. You probably drive too! At the end of the day, you want these jobs to be manageable.
With a cash-secured TCS fuel card, you simplify one of your biggest tasks – managing fuel expenses. You can track the money spent on fuel in one place and enjoy other special perks that help you save. Instead of keeping stacks of receipts or updating spreadsheets, your fuel card does the work.
When you use a TCS fuel card, you can:
Enjoy peace of mind: Fuel makes up a big part of your expenses, and you want to track every cent spent. Instead of counting on receipts or credit card transactions, you can rest easy with all your spending tracked on your fuel card.
Boost efficiency: With easier fuel tracking, you can save time when balancing the books and creating budgets. Less time on accounting means you have more time to build your client base and haul goods.
Build your business: Better spending habits and higher efficiency make your trucking business a well-oiled machine. When your company runs smoothly, you can build your success faster.
How Does a TCS Fuel Card Work?
A fuel card is almost like a debit card, but a little better. To use it, you swipe it just like any other card when you’re at the pump. You may have to enter a driver number, unit number or another form of ID to start fueling. Once you type in your info, you can fill up your tank like you normally would.
So what sets TCS fuel cards apart? Fuel cards are:
Secure: Fuel cards have controls to stop fraud in its tracks. Control who uses your card, how much they spend, and where they can spend. Plus, a convenient card means you never need to carry around hundreds of dollars in cash.
Tax-ready: International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) reports are important for trucking businesses. Find everything you need for these reports on your fuel card account.
Transparent: You can access every expense online or through the app. No secret fees or unexpected costs.
Easy to load: There are several ways to add money to your fuel card, like bank-to-bank transfers, third-party checks, Zelle® powered by blynk™, and bank wires, so you always have enough to handle your next trip.
Big Fuel Discounts Mean Big Fuel Savings
If you’re an owner-operator or company truck driver, you’re the one out on the road and the one fueling the truck. It means you’re in control of the fuel purchases, and saving money on fuel should be a high priority for you and your trucking company. There are many benefits to using a fuel card over cash or credit, but the biggest benefit of using a fuel card for truck drivers is receiving fuel discounts.
TCS clients save huge on fuel and receive zero transaction fees when they fuel up at more than 1,200 of our in-network locations nationwide. In-network locations include TA®, Petro Stopping Centers®, TA Express®, AMBEST, Speedway, Sapp Bros, Road Ranger, PWI, and more.

Custom Controls Are the TCS Difference
At TCS, an owner-operator fuel card is different than a fuel card for truck drivers because we work with you to design a flexible fuel card program that is specific to your needs. We have both EFS and Comdata fuel card platforms available on the TCS Fuel Card. We can also help you control your budget and expenses by giving you the ability to set limits for yourself on fuel and non-fuel purchases. You can easily update any card limits you’ve created as needed.

Having a truck that’s reliable and well taken care of is how you provide for yourself and your family – it’s your lifeline. We know tires and service are important.
