I use the truck lanes occasionally. On our recent trip, when we hit New Mexico, a couple of odd things happened in the truck lane: 1) the pump nozzle was a bit bigger and a tight fit, but I got it in/out ok w/ a little work; 2) they have these shared pump lanes (have seen these in TX too occasionally) where you can pump from both sides at the same time to fill tanks on both sides. Well, stupid me, I pulled up and grabbed a nozzle from the next lane over and it ended up me and the guy in the big Penske rental truck pumping on the same bill. Yowza, my bad! My wife was freaking out when the volume spinner wouldn't stop and it was pushing towards $150 for my 17 gals. We worked it out w/ the cashier but I will never reach over and do that again. Live and learn.

I find it easier to use the truck lanes. They are dirtier but so much easier to maneuver into and out of. A drawback is that you often have to go inside and drop your credit card, then return to sign it. When finished pumping, don't forget to pull ahead so the professional driver behind you can get in and start pumping.

I'm ticked at Flying Js, at leaset the two I encountered in Wyoming. They installed a driveway and pumps just for RVs. So you pull in with your roughly 60 feet of stuff and find a sharp turn that forces you to climb the curb as you exit. Up Theirs! Really stupid move. Plus, one of them exits you right back into the gas station area, and that's crowded and hard to exit.

Ive seen the same thing at a few Flying Js. I guess the person that designed them had a 19 foot motor home.
