Why would you go on that side?

Thanks in advance.
No, just diesel fuel and DEF.

Two helpful apps

First of all. Pilot/Flying J - I found that out of 683 locations only 187 have RV Lanes and they are not always where I need them when I need fuel. They are updating all the time, though. I DID use one just east of Columbus, OH and I happened to need propane, too, which was right there, but on the wrong side of my RV. I had to go all the way around their parking lot and pull thru the RV Lane the opposite direction, so they could fill the propane. It wasn't that big a deal, but it took some time.

Since I am towing, I am leery of trying the outside lanes of the auto section, because there usually is not enough room to swing wide with the toad. It is just easier to go to the truck lanes. If I need DEF, it's right there, too. I have used a credit card and Good Sam card for the $.08 discount with no problems. I rarely get a printed receipt, but I write down the details on a note pad, anyway.

Just be respectful of other drivers and pull forward after fueling, if you need to run inside for food or drink.

The one chain I dislike is Love's. They never have RV Lanes and you always have to go inside to have them pre-authorize your card (I usually go for $70) before you pump. They actually only charge your card for the actual purchase amount, not the $70.

For interstates, I use the app "iExit Trucks". It locates you on the interstate and which direction. You then can see truck stops ahead and what restaurant they have. You can tap on a truck stop to see details, then "View on Map" (Google or Apple) and then go to satellite view and see the layout of the station.

For non-interstates, I use app "Gas Buddy" to find Diesel nearby.

Find The Cheapest Truck Stop - TruckMaster Fuel Finder

This is a great app you plug in your trip and all the truck/RV stations along it are found. most of them include current fuel pricing.

We've been using it along with "Next Exit" for years.
