US 101 Oregon Diesel Fuel Stops

I will be traveling in a 45 diesel pusher flat towing a pickup truck along the Pacific coast from Washington to Northern California on US 101 this fall. I dont see any Pilot/Flying J, Loves, TA or Petro along that route.

For those of you that have traveled that route with a big rig towing - where have you stopped on US 101 in Oregon for diesel fuel that you were able to get in and out easily without having to unhook the tow?

Wow, difficult question. I've been up and down that route numerous times but darned if I can remember any specific station that accommodated my 36' Class A pulling a car. All I remember was that it wasn't a problem. I'd stop for the night, get online and plan my next travel move and as part of that, I'd google 'diesel fuel near whatever-town-I'd-stay-at-next'. Then with addresses of the stations that looked promising, I'd google earth them and choose the easiest in/out stations. Works every time. You can also just google map the address and zoom down using street view. And 'satellite' view is handy too.

In's not a worry finding big enough stations on that route if you check out your destination points prior to travel. Google Maps to find them, Gas Buddy to check out prices around the area where I'd need the fill up. Have fun!

Your tank should be big enough to do the whole coast without a fill. Just make sure you fill beforehand. We traveled the coast many times and never needed to fill. You're using your toad for running around.

However, there are some stations that would be big enough but they're not the big truck stop-types. There have been posts regarding this on this site. You might try doing a search. Here's one that came up when I searched 'OR 101, fuel stops'. It's a 76 in Reedsport:

I'm not a diesel burner but one of the best IMO is the Fred Meyer in Newport. On west side of highway across from McD's.

I wouldn't hesitate to take your rig in there. Lots of room to make the exit after the pump.

Fred's in Brookings, west side of highway at north end of town, has tight access but a traffic jamb getting in and cozy too. Every time I go in there there is someone with a 40 or 45 foot and toad in there. Not positive but I think diesel only on a couple of islands.

EDIT: Newport Fred's doesn't show on Google maps yet. Turn in to it off the highway and it is a straight shot to pumps.
