The gallon of gas is just for the generator.
Wonder what kind of road it is. Planing on taking US 70 thru Colorado on the way back. Anyone been on that hwy? I'm pulling an evo 26' trailer prob weigh about 6000 lbs or so for the first time. Driving a 2014 Silverado gas 5.3 with a tow package.

Once you find the station you want it will then allow you to get directions to that station.

The problem I have is not finding gas but finding stations that I can easily navigate through while towing a 36' travel trailer. I traveled to FL recently and just outside of Charlotte, NC I had to try 4 different highway exits before finding a station that was laid out properly. I don't have the luxury of being able to pick and choose based on price. I have to go with the station I fit in.

I hear ya! I picked up my new 29'er 3 days ago and, after bypassing a Flying J, stopped at a Walmart Neighborhood Market for gas on the way home. This was my first experience pulling a TT, and I about took out the pumps trying to get in there. I'm pretty sure this was when i ripped off my sewer pipes! First lesson for me: use truck stops if at all possible.

Some truck stops don't work either. Since my truck uses gas and not diesel, I have to pull in where the cars gas up and some of those pumps just aren't suitable.

For those wanting to easily find TRUCK stop gas/diesel stations along the way with their smart phones...here's some links to the major "brand name" truckstop apps:

Pilot Flying J
https://www.loves.com/en/loves-solut...-loves-connect
TruckSmart® Mobile App | Travel Centers of America

Note that you get a 3 cent discount with GoodSam membership at the Pilot/Flying J's...sometimes I over ride my skinflint genes with a stop at Ta-Petro to hit the Iron Skillet!
