Fueling on I90

I am traveling tomorrow on I90 through Albany and onto to i95 north. Any recommendations on truck stops along that route. I have been using Pilot but there aren't any after a certain point.

On New York State Thruway (I90) approximately 30 miles east of Buffalo NY at Exit 48A (Pembroke) there is Flying J's Travel Center. There is another truckstop next door with a Denny's restaurant.

Mike, I'm not familiar with that part of the country but I would not worry about stopping at other truck stops. Just pick those that are busy so you're assured of fresh fuel. If nobody is buying fuel there, there may be a reason. I've fueled in other than Pilot/J most of the time.

I agree with Walt. But if you want truck stops, there are AMBest stops just before the Mass border, then again on the east side of Chicopee. Then Natick Service Plaza a few miles before you hit 95. Have fun!

If you are planning on fueling at the service plazas on I-90 in MA and NY, don't go to the back of the plaza with the trucks. You can't get through to the fuel pumps from back there.

My experience has been that the service plaza prices are only slightly more expensive than the truck stops so I typically fuel there rather than deal with the toll booths getting on and off I-90

If you do stop at a service plaza, you can park with the trucks, but be sure to stay as left as possible . What I do is walk from the truck area to the fuel area to see how to approach the fuel pumps. Usually when we stop at a service plaza, we make it a pit stop for bathrooms, coffee, snacks, lunch and then we fuel up (gas). I have traveled on I90 in NY and never had any issues. I haven't gone on I90 in MA. The gas prices are not much worse than if you get off the highway.

Thanks for the feedback. We noticed after we got into Mass that the service centers have the dual pump setup like the truck stops. We did fuel at the fly J in Pembroke and then just before the Mass border at exit B3. Our plan was to drive to Houlten Ma and refuel there but we weren't sure we would make it and stopped for 20 gal along the way!!

I would like to really know how much useable fuel I had with the Seneca!!

I have Allstays Camp & RV on my Iphone, it tracks you as you are moving and shows all campgrounds, truck stops, RV repair places, LP Gas locations and all kinds of good stuff along your route and around you, you can get it for your Iphone or Ipad. I wouldn't leave home without it.
