We use the PFJ "RV Travel Guide" . Download is available on line, and some stations have hard copy pamphlets. This guide has a column "RV Lanes". These RV Lane pumps are set back from the normal gas islands, and allow more turning room. We have always managed to fit in one of these. We actually plan ahead to make a daily gas stop at one of these. Not every PFJ has them. In fact a brand new one built here in the city with my sticks and bricks does not. I was quite disappointed

Out West, if your not on a major interstate there aren't any Flying J's, Pilot's, or large travel centers. It's to bad because we avoid Interstates. We look for CFN stations, and there networks, usually Chevron. Most of these stations have a high canopy for trucks and large Rv's, and you can count on the fact that they sale large volumes of fuel usually means the fuel hasn't been sitting around very long sucking up water. I really hate to be in a position that forces me to use a little mom and pop fuel station to fill my tank with diesel. I wouldn't worry about that if I had a gas rig.

I will say its a welcome relief once we do get on the interstate when there are no other logical way to go, and I see the billboards for Pilot and large truck stops. Its so easy at that point. Again though, if your out west don't count on easy fuel stops on secondary roads. Take the less traveled roads, and you will really see America as it really is. There is so much we have seen and liked since we started doing this. Interstates are boring as hell.

For the ~12 years and 197,000 miles I towed with my F-250 diesel, I used the diesel pumps in the diesel lanes at truck stops all over the USA, and never had a problem using my ordinary personal Visa credit card or Master Card debit card at the pump. I almost always fueled up at Flying J because before Pilot bought them out, they almost always had the lowest diesel price in their area. We carried a Flying J locator card in the glovebox, and Darling Wife set the GPS to make one of them our interim destination every 300 miles or so.

I have had the same problem at Pilot where my CC didn't work at the pump in NV, CA and Oregon

I've found that my Credit card will work about half of the time at Pilot/Flying J stations. I have found the rv island, if they have one will also except my good sam member card also. I saved .65 last fill up. Yee Haw!
