Fuel availability along the 101, northern CA and Oregon

Working on our 2020 plans. I've been unable to find any big rig friendly fuel stops along the 101.

You are not going to find places like Pilot or Flying J along Hwy 101 along Cllifornia and Oregon coasts. However, there are plenty of station available with varying clearances to fill up with either diesel of gas. Depending on your fuel capacity and range, you can look at what larger tones along the coast will have the fuel type you need, You can also do Google Earth view to see what the station layouts are like. We have traveled up and down the Oregon coast with no issues in finding fuel and relatively easy access (don't do Ca anymore so can't speak to that).

Agreed. There are plenty of places but not the big truck stops. Your tank will take you many miles before having to think about it.

So far any station I've brought up on Google earth would be no go

I have a Pacific Pride card that I use primarily for Hwy 101, however there is a Shell in Beaver, OR, that I have used in the past. It's just off 101 and very easy to pull up to.

I am attaching a photo with coordinates.

It will be a hassle, but it can be done. Start looking to fill up every time you hit 1/2 empty.

Thanks for the suggestions gentlemen. The Reedsport location looks very promising. I'll be approaching from the south and it looks like there would be room for me to get completely off the highway while waiting for a pump to free up. The Shell station looks like good access, if there was no one at the pumps when I pull up, otherwise I'd be blocking traffic while watching. We're a combined 65' long in travel mode.

Yes, The Reedsport 76 has plenty of room and smooth entry and exit driveways. FYI after fueling if you need a place to pull over and take a break, there is a wide shoulder just after crossing the bridge heading North.

You may already know this, but in Oregon you can't pump your own fuel. And just because all the pump jockeys do is pump fuel, don't mistake them for experts. You need to confirm that they replace your cap when finished.

reedsport 76

We fueled there coming north in September and we are at 63' when traveling. Not a great big place but should be plenty of room.

Just fueled up in Newport Or at a Chevron. Towing toad, 54' oal.
No issues, they pumped B10, and best of all $2.98 a gallon.
You'll have no problem finding easy fuel access on the Oregon 101.
Safe travels.

Actually I was told by the station there that you can pump your own fuel if it is diesel. I did let the guy pump, but i watched to make sure he grabbed the correct handle.

They told me the station down the street had pumped gas into a diesel two times last year. Yikes!

Just saying.
