I always check their website for diesel locations along my planned route and try to make fuel stops there.

Personally, we avoid the Truck stop chains - $0.25+ more than regular station, you stand in a puddle of spilled diesel, the large diameter nozzle makes the fuel tank froth back out at you.

The only advantage is they have easy access to the pumps.

Most times, I can maneuver into a regular station, but I've been known to use the truck stops if Google maps doesn't show me a regular station that I can get in and out of.

Personally, it's not worth the effort or inconvenience to hunt up the lowest fuel price. My Flying J card gets an .08 discount and they bill me once a month. I get a fast fill with no foaming and no mess. Some of their RV lanes are tight for our 43' coach plus toad, so I use the truck lanes. In and out and on the road.

Flying J, Loves, T/A and Pilot aren't Top Tier, so they're not on my list.

I haven't had any problem finding an Exxon, Valero, Sinclair or other Top Tier station with high clearance and easy in/out access at most major exits.

We haven't traveled extensively, but so far no problems.

Gasbuddy used to link to TopTier and you could search and sort by that feature, but unfortunately they dropped that a couple years ago. It's a feature I really wish they'd bring back.

The ONLY place I ever fuel up is Flying J or Pilot...in the truck lanes. Easy in and out, fast fueling and a pay-at-the-pump discount with the RV Plus card. Also a big squeegee to clean the windshield.

Thereís no way Iím gonna try and shoe horn a 42-foot bus into a small, neighborhood gas station, just to save $5 on a fill up. ☹️

All company-owned store have RV lanes, franchise stores may not.
I stopped at one franchise store in N. Indiana that had RV lanes---BUT you couldn't pull out of them the way they were designed. I had to back out. We had a dually and 40' 5er back then.

I apologize for the other members that have turned your question into a price war thing.
