Easy in, easy out diesel on 101 south

Traveling with friends driving a 37 foot DP towing. We are currently sitting in Newport, OR and planning to head south to the Klamath rivers in California on the 101. They are worried that there are no gas stations that will accommodate their rig along that route. Does anyone know of gas stations with diesel that will accommodate them?

Yep. In Reedsport heading South just after you cross the Umpqua River bridge. Look for a 76 station on the East side of 101. Easy in and out. Diesel pumps are on the Eastern most side. Plenty of room.

Gassbuddy and Google Earth might be helpful. Find the statiuons on gasbuddy and then look at them on either Google Maps in satellite view or on Google Earth to ba able to see the actual layout of the pumps.

You shouldn't have any issues on the 101 in Or. Google earth is a great source to cfm but we have found many stations that accommodated our 40'DP towing in our multiple trips to the PNW. It was more of an issue for us traveling on 101 in Ca., above Santa Rosa. Enjoy your trip!

Fill up in Oregon and they can go a long ways into California. There are suitable stations along the route.

Good prices at Fred Meyer in Florence. Kind of tight but doable.

Fred Myer in Brookings is the last town before California. I have pulled in there on fumes going north to keep from buying fuel in CA. Easy in and out. Top off there at least even if just a 1/4 tank. Gas Buddy is a great app to find your next fuel stop.

Spend the night at the marina, it is pretty OK spot.

Fred Meyer in Coos Bay, OR is easy in, easy out too. The further south you go, the higher the price. We fueled up in Coos Bay last week. Use google maps satellite view to get a good idea on accessibility and traffic patterns.
