These truckers are people too. They understand about driving into tight places where they do not want to be. Your 40 foot rig tells them that you have a right to be there. Pull in and leave your truck running while in the fuel lanes, the very last thing that you want to happen is for your truck not to start back up and you are blocking a fuel lane. Someone should always stay with the rig when at the pumps. Different fuel stations have different policies of paying. Some pre-pay, some post pay, there is usually a Sign to tell you and usually a speaker button to talk to the people inside if need be. Pull in and get your business done and pull out of the way. These truck stops usually always have a large parking lot to park. Parking with the big rigs is fine. (I have parked among them many a night and the drone of the engines is music to fall asleep to) If backing in or pull through to park, keep the front of your truck even with the front of the other rigs so that they will see you and know that slot if filled.
When parked and wanting to go into the station/restaurant, now is the time to shut your truck off and lock it up.
