Anyone know of good app for RV friendly gas stations

I tow a TT with a Ford F-150 and only get about 6 mpg and only have a 22 gallon gas tank. So I have to fill quite often (every 1.5 hours). So I have to plan my stops well. Anyone know of a good iPhone app for RV friendly gasoline islands?
Some day I will upgrade to a bigger diesel but for now I just fill a lot

We use the 'Next Exit' in hard copy and it shows RV friendly stations at each interstate exit in red. Not sure if they have an app or not.

Only helps with stations along the interstate though.

I often use Allstays app for traveling. Not only does it highlight campgrounds and associated RV points of interest such as repair facilities, dealers and what not it shows truck stops specifically pilot and flying J. I don't know if it calls out the ones with RV islands or not.

Try iExit app. It's tied to Gas Buddy now so it shows pricing for fuel stations. You have to tap the station and then the info at the bottom to find out what it has. I'm the navigator and I use it all the time for locating truck stops (we tow with a Volvo semi-truck, smart car behind cab), rest stops, Walmart and other places that are RV/big rig friendly

hahaha. Looks like a good app. BUT......I installed it, put in "search nearby highways" and it was smart enough to take me to I-40 (Which is the nearest freeway). But it had East and West backwards.

Oh well........I have dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dysfunctionality sometimes too!

I noticed on some reviews it was having problems. I understand issues with I-10 here in Eloy, AZ as it actually runs north/south through here. Keeps me confused and lost!

The Flying J/Pilot app works well. It will tell you if there are RV lanes.

Another thing I use - the Good Sams online trip planner will allow you to show all the Flying Js along your route. I pre-plan my route and gas stops in the planner and then punch the station addresses into the GPS.
