Gas Station near Ruidoso,NM for 44ft DP + Toad

We are heading to Ruidoso Motorhome Ranch this weekend and I always like to fill up as much as possible near my destination. I looked at the gas stations in Alto and Ruidoso on Google maps but they all seem rather tight.

Anybody know of one that can accommodate a 44 foot diesel pusher? I can disconnect the toad if needed.

I'd recommend getting fuel on the interstate before turning off. Las Cruces has many good ones if coming from that direction. You're correct - the stations around Ruidoso are tight and they have you coming in toward the building and that can be a problem. There's Apache Travel Center Casino at 25845 US Hwy 70, Mescalero, NM but again, it has you coming in toward the building with vehicles parking on all sides. Google it for a look see.

I'm coming from the north, either via I40 or I25. Nearest truck stop is about 110 miles.

There is an Alon (which may now be a Valero) in Alto on 48 and Sun Valley. It looks like there is enough room to pull up, fill up, drop the toad and back out. From there it is only a few miles to the RV resort.
