If you don't already, check out GasBuddy app. My copilot will search for the best fuel stops while enroute. Every bit helps.
Here's a couple pics. Went on another ferry ride while enroute to Myrtle Beach. This time they had us in the center, in away from seaspray.
Fortunately we didn't have too many cases that were very extreme, though I did see a quarter shift at times. We have the Gas Buddy app, but I usually just lay the premium and shop at truck stops for the convenience of easy in/easy out AND the high flow nozzles. It's sometimes painfully slow enough at 25-30 gallons, I couldn't imagine double or triple that.
AND- we are maxed out on payload (all 4,300 lbs of it). Anything added to the truck at this point should start to put me into overloaded territory.
BUT! I'm jealous of your ferry pics. That's on my bucket list of things to do. We head to Myrtle Beach on Saturday for a long weekend. I'm looking forward to it- even if it is supposed to be cold as crap!
