I did learn, at least at the Love's, I needed to pump the DEF first then the fuel... Tired the other way around and I needed to go back in and reactivate the pump..

If I'm stopping for fuel and potty breaks, 15 minutes is my average for truck stops. Even if we're grabbing some snacks or water refreshes out of the camper, still no extra time.

I almost always use the RV lane unless there is a line then I pull around to the truck lanes. Then I pull over into the RV parking - go inside and look around either have pie and coffee or pickup a ice cream and soft drink. Takes about 30 to 45 minutes but I'm not racing to get somewhere - I'm on vacation and enjoying life and not trying to do Indy pit stop.

The semi pumps are more expensive per gallon because of taxes that truckers have to pay, some states have no tax at pump, you pay per quarter. But they are very convenient, Rv lanes shouldn't have taxes. I always find the lowest pump price when filling my semi cause it's coming out of my pocket

I had heard that. Maybe they deduct it from the price when we use the truck lanes. I thought the ifta sticker was for the taxes.

I'm not sure if they can deduct it from price, though there was only cash or credit price at semi pumps, IFTA sticker just lets everyone know you're registered with the international fuel tax association when you go through weigh stations. There is lots of paperwork and calculations every three months for miles traveled versus gallons purchased in each state, thankfully my wife takes care of all that nonsense

Ok, I guess I just was never in a state with the extra tax. Never paid more than the car lanes. But I have only been through twice at the truck side.

I have a 2005 Silverado hd 6.6 duramax with a 6 1/2 ft bed 25gal tank and also a 45 gal aug tank along with a low profile tool box that has a 12volt pump n hose on drivers side.With this set up we travel for 4or5 hundred miles stop for the night unhook,get a bight to eat and top fuel tanks off. I can have this setup out or installed in about 1/2 hr.I'm also running a flip over goose neck set up as to keep my bed as open as possible.8-12 mpg towing . We've been from Ohio to fla to Louisianan and back to Ohio. As well as Ohio to Louisiana n back several times pulling doubles(boat behind camper).We top off truck at rest stops most of the time.
