Even though we're 42' I prefer to use the rv lane if accessable. For alot of the reasons some have mentioned. The pumps are slower but that:
Gives me, the driver a break.
Allows me the time I need to wash the windshield and mirrors.
Allows me time to check my towbar/toad etc.
Obviously if someone is waiting behind me we fuel and go but most of my experience at the RV pumps has been much more relaxed than the hurry up and wait (at the fuel desk) truck lanes. Not to say I haven't seen a few times where the RV lanes were chaos as well.
Unfortunately due to our size we mostly have to use the truck lanes.
We also like the cleanliness of the RV side as we take our 130# Golden out and don't like him to have to walk thru spilled diesel.
I have no loyalty to J or any of them. I will say we pulled into the truck lanes at a pilot 0n 40 in Lebanon Tn. only to find they did not have ultra low sulfer diesel. We ended up going across the st. to a Shell who had 3-truck pumps out back that worked out beautifully. You would think that stuff would of gone by the wayside by now.
I agree truck stops are usually easier, but if we spot a reqular station w/plenty of room and clearance and we are in our window of needing fuel we're there.
