RV Friendly Gas Stations

I would like to encourage everyone who travels and gets gas (not diesel) to support www.rvfriendlygas.com in the same manner as they support www.rvparkreviews.com. This site was started recently by a fellow forum member responding to the needs of those who suggested what we are looking for when trying to find a service station that allows us easy access without the worry of having to unhitch our TOAD. Diesels generally don't have this problem as there is normally a separate place for them to refuel. However, if you have a diesel and want to submit your info, I'm sure it would be welcome. I will post this on a couple other forums as well.

It's a greatly needed site IMHO. I hope it takes off. I will post as I travel in the future.

It's always good to have additional sites, but RV Friendly Gas Stations provides information for those not interested in diesel stations and where it is easy to pull in and out without worry. It, too, is a free site as it is sustained by input from people like you and me.

The AITA site lists mostly real "truck stops". Not really "all of the places for fuel in every state" that an RVer might use, especially those with smaller rigs.

I can always use a site listing stations I can get in/out of. Being a gasser, I don't care about truck lanes.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We carry the current edition of the Next Exit with us when traveling. That book lists services at all Interstate highway exits and highlights in red type the RV friendly businesses, both fuel and food. The hardcopy book is less than $11 through Amazon. There may be 'an app for that' but I don't know and don't much care.

This will be a great site if it gets populated with enough info. As someone who had felt the pain ($23,000 damage to the rv) of tangling with a pump protector post at a regular gas station, I am always looking at gas stations as I drive my car, asking if I could get my 40' Safari Panther in there for fuel.

I have noticed that some stations that are at a corner intersection are laid out at a 45 degree angle, meaing that you can pull in straight from one street to the pump and exit straight on the next street without having to fight a tight turn around the pump to exit the station. Other non friendly stations are laid out parallel to the road, so that to enter or exit, you have to make a sharp turn around the pump.

My RV is a diesel so my first choice will now always be travel plaza's or truck stops. however, if I have to use a station in a metropolitan area, I will look for one where the station is at an angle and you can pull in and exit in a straight line without tight turns.

Hope this site does well. Let's all suppport it.

Rick
