Gasoline stops on US-82 across Georgia

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a good gas station on US-82 in southern GA? Will be traveling from Waycross, GA, to Eufala, AL, in a class A towing. Fuel needed is gas(Ford V-10), not diesel. Doesn't look like there're any Flying J's along this route which often have dedicated RV lanes, so need a good alternative.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone can offer.

Jim

Hi Jim, there is a Pilot in Albany. It's in the at Cordele Road (interchange area of US 82 and Cordele). Even though there is no exclusive RV lane, the car fuel islands are easily accessible and give enough room to maneuver. One of the least expensive gas stations in the area too.

Click here for a Google image of the station ...as you can see, coincidentally, there's a Class A gas RV with toad sitting at one of the pumps in this image.

Click here for a satellite view where you can see there is plenty of room.

Out of curiosity, why do you need to stop for gas? Isn't it only about 180 miles between the two places you mentioned? You don't have to answer but just curious, lol.

Hi theroc,
Thanks, I'll look at that Pilot but normally don't consider them if they don't have dedicated RV lanes like the FJ's. Many Pilots I've looked at didn't seem friendly to big rigs towing but if the one in Albany is that'll be great!
I'm in St Mary's, GA, and there's not much here in the way of big gas stations so will need to stop before I get to Alabama. Thanks again for the input.

Jim

Also I'm pretty sure there's a big BP or something at intersection us27 and 82 in Cutbreth GA...that's easy access....

MisterT,
Most "normal" gas stations have pumps perpendicular to the store and there's not enough room for a 35' Class A towing to maneuver in/out. Even many FJ's with RV lanes are very tight. Prefer larger, "country" gas stations with pumps parallel to the road that can accommodate large farm/ranch trucks, often towing.

Sorry for an off topic question. How do you make a clickable url link into "click here"

PM me so as not to be off topic ....again.

Interesting as the BP station mackwrench mentions has separate diesel islands. That is nice to see for those of us with diesel engines. However, it appears it's diesel only from this Google image ...HERE

go here for Google Street view

go here for Google satellite view ...difficult to tell from satellite because of the shadows

However, if you scrutinize this image, you can see that even though it might look narrow as in your description of the pumps being perpendicular to the store, it appears there's still enough room to maneuver into the pumps. Obviously, I'd recommend going in so you're facing away from the store.

My opinion, however, is that you'll have a bit more room at the Pilot in Albany. Plus, as the Google image shows in that instance, there already is what appears to be at least a 35-footer with a toad at the island.

Are you towing a trailer or a car?

Highlight the word/words you want to appear as a hyperlink/clickable link and then go to the icon and paste in the URL that corresponds to the page you intend the link to be directed to.



edit: oops, didn't notice your "PM" request. If you or anybody else has further questions, PM me so we don't further pull this thread off-topic, LOL.

We have a 35' 6" Tiffin Allegro Class A and tow. I use the outside pumps without any problems. I personally don't like the rv dedicated lanes because you usually have to wait to get to the pump.

I was browsing through the notes in our logs and one last suggestion pertaining to a gas station ...I don't know if this will do you any good but just across the river from Eufala on the Georgia side, there's a Citgo with fuel islands that are NOT perpendicular but parallel to the store so lots of room to get in and out. Since it is a Citgo station, it's top tier gas. It's at Depot Street and US 82 on the left side just before you get to the bridge.

If you can't use it on the way to Eufala, perhaps you can use it to fill up on the trip back.

I realize that the layout of the station is important to the OP but the price of gas would be a big part of my decision to go no go for a perfect layout. I use the GasBuddy app for the best price of gas then I would choose the stations layout. I happen to use diesel so many of the stations with Diesel have a layout favorable to big rigs.

Take a look at the Flash Food store in Kingsland.
790 E King Ave, Kingsland, GA 31548-6317

This is off of Exit 3 of I-95. Go west on Rt 40 for 1.6 miles. Flash Foods is on the left. Access is from both Rt 40 or the side street just before Flash Foods. That means you can drive straight through using the pumps closest to the store (see photo in link).

The pumps are parallel to the store. Here is a link to the Google Street View.

Current price for Regular is 2.21 (gasbuddy.com).

When in the area, I use this station instead of the ones closer to I-95. Easier to get in and out even with just my SUV.
