BR area: Walmart fuel on Hooper Rd?

anybody gotten fuel there? #2 hasn't been over $2/gal since they opened, but i have yet to see a truck in there filling up. don't wanna risk a bad tank for $3-4.00 extra to fill at either Magnolia truck stop or Murphy Express on 16 in Denham.

however, i drive past this on my way to work every day and it'd be an incredibly convenient stop - but i'm not risking it unless someone knows if they have good fuel. maybe i'm being paranoid, but the last thing i need right now is a bad tank taking out a couple thousand dollars' worth of injectors and CP3.

Rarely do I get fuel at Walmart. The only ones I do buy from are in rural areas where it's the cheapest game in town and that's where most folks get fuel.

The shell at Lockhart and 16 has decent fuel as does the Exxon across the street. And of course the truck stop. Like you said, the cost difference is minimal to know you're getting good fuel.

Hey buddy, I don't live or go through BR that often, but I can tell you that Dupre Transport has the contract for all Murphy,,Shop right,,Tobacco Plus stores..If Dupre had the least amount of a hint anything was wrong they will stop delivery on the spot,they run a very very strict quality program to protect thier reputation. If you call thier office they would be happy to get you to the person who can tell you exactly what date,time the truck was there..also the store is equipped with a water alert inside the store and is sent by satellite to Murphy. I learned that from serviceing the Valero stores across south La..hope all is well with your growing family.

The Murphy at the Walmart in Watson stays busy, and usually a low price too. Haven't had any problems myself.

that's usually my alternate fuel spot if the Murphy's down by Double D's has a fuel truck dumping #2. there or the magnolia truck stop, depending on which way i'm going.

Yea, I use the place at Walmart leaving the house, and the place by Double D's if I'm on the way home (convenient excuse to swing in for a daiquiri)
