Fuel Question

For those of us that must use the Big rig islands for diesel, is there a way to pay for our fuel without having to go in? And how do you go about it?

Here's a link that describes a popular method: https://www.rvpluscard.com/ProgramDetails/

Just wondering what you are driving "that must use the Big rig islands for diesel"? We probably are not as long as you are, but at our length + toad we rarely use the big truck islands. BTW, the new Costco near you in Florence, Ky has diesel and is easy to get in and out of the station from Interstate 75.
