I generally try to avoid the truck lanes. Most aren't pay at the pump and you have to go in, get the pump activated, fill up, then go back in to finalize the deal. Too much work if another option is available with pay at the pump.

If no other option is available, I'll use them and tell them I'm a private vehicle. After filling, pull ahead so the next truck can pull up to start fueling while you're in paying.

No reason to be afraid.
I can also add that since I'm from Canada and my cards usually don't work at the pump anyway , I find these pumps really convenient while towing my 42ft fiver.

I have a 2011 F250 Diesel and the only place I stop for fuel is Pilot and Flying J, to use their truck pumps. One main reason is I have a fuel card and don't have to pay it until the next month but also, it's way easier pulling a 38' 5er to use the truck pumps. I've never had anyone ever say anything to me. I pay at the pump but always go in to pee, get coffee or a snack.

I love the high volume pumps! I can fill my truck in a minute. Just don't use the lock. Learned that lesson the hard way.

Thanks Kim Gass!!! The truck stop app is great. It can show you a satellite image of the truck stop that will help.

If you have a 250 or bigger truck, the bigger nozzels will fit and you can use the high flow pumps.

Be aware that diesel at a truck stop in Indiana will cost you more than is shown on the pump. the price per gallon will change when you swipe your card and it will increase to what they call the retail price. Problem is that if you had stopped at the regular station at the previous exit or next one you would likely pay the same ppg as what the truck stop calls the commercial rate. Its all BS. I understand that this is unique for Indiana and the practice is not the same in other states.

I have found that commercial pumps won't accept your credit card and you have to go inside to pay. Last time I ended up in a long line of truck drivers.
After 10 minutes I got to the front of the line and the first thing ask was the number of my pump???? so back out to the islands to get the # and then back inside to the back of the line. Not worth the hassle. I just pay attention to upcoming regular stations on the signs for upcoming exits. At least 3 stations will pretty much assure that at least one of them has pump islands parallel to the station so you can pull in and then out without having to make a tight turn.

Never had a problem at Truck pumps. I've pulled trailers all over th U.S., Loves normally have diesel at all/ or at least the end pumps, Flying J has a great RV lanes up front, I prefer the truck lanes. Fill up in ab 2 min. TA's don't have diesel up front. My favorite is Buckee's. If you see one of these stop even if you don't need fuel. They are awesome!!! It's like an Auto truck stop. 100 pumps with diesel at all pumps!.....anyway, no problems at truck stops.

Lot of truck stop folks here but look at the price at the TS vs auto diesel, most places .20 a gallon or more, you pay for the added maneuvering room. Wish I had figured that out when I drone commercial. Check gas buddy, it's your friend for best price.

My first choice is to fill up w/o the trailer. We have a range of 450 miles towing and I'll be unhooked and set up in a campground. We never drive farther in a day than that.

On familiar routes, I have favorites already id'd that are quick in/out and reasonable.

Gas Buddy is very helpful.

Update for Pacific Pride in WA State - here in the Seattle/Eastside area, anyway.
The stated requirements are (1) must have business license and (2) must purchase a minimum of 250 gallons/month.

I have #1 covered, but they're going to make an exception for #2 and see how long it passes under the radar. Not sure on their personal flexibility in allowing 'small users' access (they're going to set us up for an expected 100 gal/month).

What tank did you go with? Did you install it yourself?
