Truck Plaza

The question I have is if you are a Class A gasser do you fuel up in the front of the plaza or do you go to the back with the large trucks. I usually try to refuel in front on an outside lane. Yesterday I got trapped when a car pulled in a parking space in front and went inside. Did not think the toad could make the turn so had to wait. I heard the the fuel nozzles for the large trucks was different but don't know. Any info would be helpful

Are you gas or diesel?

If you're diesel, then use the big boy pumps, I learned my lesson fast. The front pumps have much less velocity and volume. It will take a long time to fill up a big tank and you have to deal with idiots blocking you in or people yelling at you when you're blocking them in. Even the RV islands at flying j/pilot arent really meant for diesel MH's, they're geared more toward 5'ers and towables.

Just go do what you need to at the truck pumps and get out of the way. I've never had an issue.

X2 on the truck side. Those pumps run 4-5 times the speed of the regular pumps.
However, OP states he has a gasser, so probably stuck with the regular pumps out front.
Not sure I've ever seen a gas pump on the truck plaza.

Member stated he has a gasser, so gas is up front.

As the above member notes, no gas at the truck islands.

Thanks for the answer. I will continue to go to the front with caution.

Most Flying J's have a separate RV pump area with gas and Diesel to the side of the main pump area in front.
Not always easy to navigate due to stupid actions of some people, but when we had a gasser, we tried, if possible, to hit the FJ's.
Get a FJ directory which lists all services including RV pumps.
Now that we have a big D, we go with the trucks.
