New England fuel up GAS

Soon we will be going on our first long distance trek. Going from MA to ME, we do not have Pilot or Flying J to fill up. Mostly Exxon or other directly on the highway. So my question is where do I fuel up? My rig is about 32 feet long plus the toad. A hight of 11 1/2 feet....

To me the standard car lanes look high enough on the mass pike but should I try the truck lanes?

I often use the diesel pumps at automobile islands, (of both ordinary filling stations and truck stops), and have for 14 years.
My coach is 12'/3" high and I have never had a height problem.

However, before pulling in I always "eye-ball" the the driving area, (to make sure I'll have room to get in, and out, without having to disconnect the toad)....as well as any roofs/overhangs.

I go where I can get in and out the easiest and quickest. That rig of yours can get in and out of some pretty tight areas. I have a Costco card, those are good to get in and out of.

Get the Gas Buddy app and just go where it is cheaper. You will save serious $$$. You should be able to negotiate most gas stations,try for the outside lane and go slow. Gas on the turnpike will be ridiculously expensive.

How often will you need to fill up? It's only about 400 miles from Pittsfield, MA to Bar Harbor, ME.

I really doubt you'd have trouble finding a place easy enough to get in and out of. Just make sure you know how you're getting out before you go in.

As for truck lanes... aren't you asking about gasoline and not diesel?
