WE use Pilot, Flying J or Loves. Most have lots of space. Each has mobile apps.

Flying J has specific pumps for RV's that are easy in and out and do not have the LARGE nozzles. Pilot only has the large nozzles in the specific diesel section that will require an adapter. All are more expensive than the local walmart. If you are a good sam member, you will get a discount at the pilot stations.

You could use this also...

Find The Cheapest Truck Stop - TruckMaster Fuel Finder

it's called the truckmaster database. I like it alot... Gives you stops miles from your start... say you have a 250 mile range, it will give you stops that are around 250 miles from your start.

If you use a smart phone. Try “Gas Buddy” from App Store. Very easy to use and you can see gas prices all along your route. Prices are updated by users and are pretty reliable. You can also set your pref for Diesel if that’s what you use.

I use GasBuddy or Waze to find the best fuel prices around me, I also have my bride pull up the satellite view of the station to make sure it has room for me. We typically try to schedule our fuel stops ~250-300 miles apart, so we do a bit of pre-planning prior to leaving for the day. I am not "married" to one particular brand or another, I just want something with plenty of in and out room with outside lane pumps.
