Yes, you are correct. I have seen regular cars get gas and then go in and get stuff to eat and not worry about others in line waiting to get gas. Just inconsiderate.

I try to carry at least a dozen, maybe 14 sometimes. Of course it all depends on whose winning at the time.

When the pump does not give you your receipt, You must go into the store and get it. I was pulled over by the city police because they THOUGHT I drove off with out paying. By promptly producing the pump receipt, they found out they pulled over the wrong vehicle. Had I not gone in and obtained the receipt, I would have been in a lot of trouble. The Florida law says they can take your drivers licence for driving off with out paying for gas.

Contrary to popular belief, there are truck fueling stations that have both diesel and gas. I used such a one going around the UP the past year. I was surprised and cautious to make sure I picked the diesel pump. They are far and few between. I have only see a couple of them, and the have always been an independent station.

My biggest gripe last summer was pulling off to get gas at a Pilot/Flying J and the gas pumps are lined up in front of the store. Great for cars or something under 30ft total. There was no way I was gonna pull in and be able to pull out in a 34 ft towing a Wrangler - the tail and jeep would swing into the pumps. Sometimes I could fit on an end and then carefully pull out and swing around the back of the station, but not always.

I think the problem is that RV can mean 25ft Class C or 40 Ft class A towing. The Next Exit book we used was pretty helpful, but I always had approach any gas station slowly and look for bail out spots in case I would not be able to get out of the pumps. I probably passed on 1/3 of the places I attempted.

We are seriously looking at a Diesel just for ease of refueling....

I go where ever I can get gas for the best price. I am pretty good a sizing up a station from the street to make a determination as to if i can get in, get fuel, and get back out. I have never gotten into a problem with that.

But I have had the problem with some of the bigger stations that the pumps are parallel to the street. I pull in but as to not block traffic I sit with my indicators on waiting to turn into the pump and some dumb a$$ 4 wheeler pulls right in front of you.
