I stopped using them a couple of years ago when I realized they were charging more than the local big brand stations. I did like them because there was rarely a wait for fuel. Only came across a couple that were not clean and maintained. They also used to send an email listing prices at various locations or you could call and ask the price.

If a restaurant can't be bothered to clean the restrooms that the customer can see, why would they bother to clean the kitchen that the customer can't see?
Do you just sign up for a card, or is there a contract involved? Can you pay the bill with a credit card to get the card discount?
Most of them I visited did not have restrooms unless they were combined with another dealer. I often saw commercial trucks filling there but actually have no guess as to how often the fuel cycles. Many or most are franchise dealers according to the internet. They are basically for commercial or fleet fuel so you would/should never have a problem getting in and out with an RV. I signed up online, no contract involved and paid via the internet. In Oregon you cannot pump gas so that might exclude gasoline RV's.
