sorry to politely disagree, but since we've been fulltiming and traveling over 50,000 miles in the last two years, I have only used a 'truck stop' for diesel twice in that time(early on), and 'normal' fuel stations, especially Walmart Murphy stations, hundreds of times since our start... WITH a toad, and my 35' coach...

it can be done, us 'normal' people do it all the time...

you have to plan your EXIT whenever you use any fuel station, even truck stops, and you have to know your rig, keep attention to turning radius, and don't be afraid... it will come with time.

Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions.

Jim, not to pull this thread off-topic again as I know there has been a recent thread/discussion on the forum recently on this topic, but if you need the recently updated list of licensed "Top Tier" stations, I've attached it below.

I've never been one who insists on using Top Tier stations exclusively but, sure, would rather use them. Since Costco is Top Tier licensed and usually has the cheapest gas in any given area, I almost exclusively look for a Costco for the toad. I also have even used their diesel pumps for the motorhome when it's not busy ...those stations that have diesel as not all of them do.
