You guys are great. I refueled twice today. No problems. I didn't rip out any pumps. (This is really a big deal for me.) Thanks to everyone for their feed back.

After you do it one time you will be fearless I would think you could get in just about any gas station or gas mart even if you needed to back out with that size trailer all your truck stops have gas in front diesel in back some have one diesel pump in front for small trucks

I plan on carrying 2 5 gallon cans for diesel fuel. My range of my Ram is about 10 miles per gallon with a 35 gallon tank. I will also carry a couple different size funnels so that I am not stuck trying to use a large nozzle on my tank fill.

As you are approaching the gas station, make sure you not only can find a way IN to a gas lane - but that you can also get OUT.....

My experience is that truck stops are generally not a problem; they usually have long straight in approaches to the pumps. Getting out is also quite good.

Places I have found to be cautious are stations in towns and cities. Because of locations you may have to enter and turn to approach the pumps. Getting out maybe difficult. Study your approach before committing yourself to a station.

What year ram? My 2015 F 250 Ford Powerstroke takes the large nozzles just fine. Just have to ez up at the top portion of the tank.

My ram is a 2013. The nozzle does fit, but I have had splash back of the fuel in the past. It seems that the fill neck will take the larger nozzle, but not a lot of breathing room in the neck.

The funnel is also useful for adding additives such as Motokote Fuel Enhancer

This is the only thing that scares me about pulling a 30 ft TT and that is getting gas. When you pull off the interstate u have no idea what kind of set up is at the gas stations. A whole lot of them are not RV friendly.

Someone suggested AllStays app. and I downloaded it. It is $10 but from what I can see just playing with it at home it is worth every penny. It actually shows a picture of the gas station and their pumps for a lot of the stations. This could be quite helpful when deciding which exit to get off on and get gas.
