Well get ready, they are already coming with the new stores. Walmart is going to put in there own gas stations. Murphy has been the stations at Walmart but no more. The Murphy stations will stay but now Walmart will be in competition with them. Between my house and Wilmington NC on I-40 a new Walmart store selling diesel for $1.69, at my house 35 miles away $1.95. Forget going in there with a camper. I'll be going by there on 5 March, going to buy a 100gl

Aux tanks

I installed 2 Sidekick 15gal tanks in my 2007 Dodge short bed.

I use the truck lanes and have never had a problem. Both Rams that I have owned take the larger truck pump and can fill a tank in no time flat.

I've used the truck lanes often when I owned my 2006 VW TDI Jetta Station wagon. It accepted truck nozzles and the truck lanes often were less busy mid-day than the passenger fueling areas.

One thing that folks don't recognize that may prevent a complete filling of their fuel tanks is that diesel fuel foams a lot! If you fill at a slower rate and and wait a minute before after the pump shots off you should be able to add an additional fuel. It takes a couple minutes of time but teh extra couple of gallons helps.

I try to fill the tank so it is visible in the fill hole. This is safe to do in diesels but overfilling is not recommended in gas vehicles because of evaporative canister emissions stuff.

I have a 50 gal tank/toolbox which might not work for 5ers but works well for me. It was easy to install and is much easier to remove, just 3 bolts and a worm clamp. Electric pump and filter remain attached under the bed.

Another point on using major truck stop fueling places is the diesel fuel is fresh do to the large turn over rate of trucks buying diesel.

Most of the time we are traveling to a destination and this could be several days away from us. So we do not un-hook the 5er and for the convince of fueling up we just pull in to the truck stops right off the interstate.

We also use two different books to find diesel fuel in states that we are not familiar with. One is called the Next Exit and the other is called the RV'ERS friend.
If you haven't done so already, or if this thread is a duplicate please bear with me. Get a Good Scam Pilot\Flying J card. It will save you .06 per gallon on diesel fuel. I don't leave home without it.

That setup should work with 5er since it sets below the rails.

Off topic but I just checked your TT on youtube, that is one classic act, unique, and well thought out floor plan. Here is the video I looked at and if I was in market for TT this would be the one hands down.

I e used them many times. No issues at all and they really fill up the truck quickly! Otherwise, I try to find a Flying J or TA and their diesel is on the outside lanes.
