Diesel Fuel Stations


New to 5th Wheeling and wondering if there is a list of stations that sell diesel across the US and Canada that are RV friendly. We are having a bit of trouble locating stations where we don't have to back out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Barbara and Jim

We almost always buy fuel at major truck stops. I'm honestly not that concerned about paying a few pennies more per gallon if I can be sure the fuel is fresh. I normally buy about 50 gallons at a time; 5 cents a gallon is $2.50 on that. A fuel filter is a lot more than that.

We always use truck stops and fill where the big trucks fill. Easy in and out. The drawback is you may have to go inside to pay to use the truck pumps. Unless you have a gas tow vehicle, why try to maneuver your rv around the gas islands to get diesel. The truckers don't mind either. You will fill faster and be out of the way.

If you have a GPS it may tell you where the nearest or next truck stop is. Our Garmin does. A smart phone may go one better and tell you the price of fuel as well.

When fueling at the big truck islands be careful to watch where you walk. They seem to leak oil as well as fuel and it tracks back into your coach and mama ain't gunna be thrilled with that !

A lot of walmarts and sams have diesel. go in and get Rand McNally atlas book (with walmart & sams clubs) of the US and in the back is a list with both wally world and sam's club by state, city with street address, map reference and in some examples, interstate exit.

Hi AloraDanin,
Pilot Flying J has what you need. Large and safe fueling stops. They also have several discount programs where you can use a CC and still get the cash price and a discount off the cash price. Go to myRewards - RV Customer and read about it.

Hi Barbara & Jim. This is the one I use to check all the major brands - location and price. http://www.dieselboss.com/fuel.htm Shows their gas prices also.

This is a good book to carry, tells where the fuel is on all the interstates: # 1 USA Interstate Exits - Hotels, Gas, Food - the Next EXIT

I treat the big truck stops like KOA, they are the last resort. The big stops are dirty, loud, expensive, crowded, you have to go inside to pay and generally a pain. I try to find smaller stops that are well used, sell lots of fuel and big rig friendly...refueling is a much more pleasant experience.

X# Gary. We use Flying J almost all the time. They are very similar and you get around fairly easy. Keeps the surprises to a minimum. Propane, dump station etc.
