Big Rig Gas in the Florida Keys

We are currently at a place called Point of View RV Park in Key Largo. 5 Min from John Pennycamp and very nice. Not a ton of privacy, just some hedges that sort of split up all pull-thru sites. Wide enough for a camper and a boat. Great pool, boat ramp, etc.

We are going to Bluewater Key Ocean resort next, which is about 85 miles from here, about 12 miles from the end of Key West. I'm a bit over half full in my fuel tank. I'm looking for a big rig friendly diesel station between here and Blue Water (like a Speedway, Racetrack, Pilot or whatever). I'm pulling my CRV, so I'd like something that can accommodate me. If I fill up now, I can make it down to Key West and back home without refueling again next week. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

About 10 miles south of you, in Tavernier, is a Chevron. Fairly wide driveway into and you can exit through the rear (straight shot) onto a side street and "go around the block" to get back to the highway. Take a look at it on Google maps.

There are several choices. There are no "big box" fueling stations. However, there are stations with a relatively easy in and out. As you pass through Marathon there is a fueling station on the left (when traveling south). About a mile past mile marker 39 is a station on the left. There is another choice or two farther down the road. My memories are from about 3 years ago.

Answering my own question...
In Marathon, there is a large Valero station that looks big enough for easy in, easy out.

There is a Shell station on Big Pine Key where I have fueled my 38 foot Class A with a Honda CRV on the tow bar.
