Can I be a "truck" when gassing up?

I've only ever filled up my TV in the CAR sections of the filling station and am curious as to whether I can top off at the TRUCK pumps in the Loves, TAs and Pilot travel centers across the US. Is that allowed? Or is it frowned upon? It sure would make getting in and out a lot easier.

If it matters, I'm running standard 87 octane gasoline, not diesel. I assume that's available in the truck lanes.

Generally all diesel. Big, fast flowing nozzles, and higher taxes.

I've never seen gasoline at the truck islands of a truck stop.

Truckers might frown on that.

No gas in truck lanes and the nozzels would be too large to fit in to your filler neck.

What about if you have a diesel truck?

I tried this once and there was no where to pay that I could see. I wondered if I needed to go in and pay but instead moved to the other side.

The high flow nozzles pump about 300 gallons in the same time it takes to fill your tank. The size of the nozzle on truck side is much larger the what is on any car or pickups. The nozzle will no fit it to the filler neck. I drive tractor trailer and can guarantee that trucks will be mad and you will get yelled at if the fuel stand is busy.

And yes if you don't have a cardlock you need to pay inside

I routinely pull in alongside the big rigs when filling my Cummins up with the camper hooked up. I have never had anyone say anything about it and have had a few nice conversations with some of the truckers while fueling. I do try to follow their rules though and as soon as I have pumped I pull forward into the staging area if I need to run in the store for anything.
