Gas Station App

Can anyone recommend a good App to use for gas stations? Especially when towing? We all know gassing up in our FR3 presents a minor challenge . But when towing it's a monumental challenge. Most of the Apps out there are created with truckers and diesel fuel stops in mind. But for us gassers I have not found anything that sets you up for a good turn by turn approach while towing. Very few gas stations in my experience are set up for a gas RV with a dinghy. I have used iexit which is pretty good but doesn't really give me what I need when landing at a gas station that can accommodate me. Any help would be appreciated.

I like Gas Buddy but I don't think it caters to any particular type vehicle. Would be nice to have one that would show stations that were built for larger vehicles in mind, besides tractor trailers

X2 gas buddy, I type in what gas station I want to see and it will show only those stations. So you can have it show only the truck stop stations... good app.

X3 on Gas Buddy with an option. After you've picked a station or an exit on Gas Buddy use your smart phone to view the station on Google Earth. Ain't technology great?

We generally look for Flying J when traveling as they have dedicated RV fuel islands that are easy to get into and out of, especially when we are hauling a toad.

Their smartphone app will give you a list of both stations (Pilot and Flying J), plus current fuel cost etc. Very useful.
