Gas in Utah

We generally use Flying J's to fuel because of the RV gas lanes . In the near future we'll be in the north west corner of New Mexico and the south east corner of Utah. ( 550 and 64 in NM , 160 , 163 and 89 in AZ and 163 ,191 ,I70 and 89 in Utah ) Can anyone suggest gas locations that are motor home friendly . With a 38 ft motorhome and a toad in tow normal gas stations are a pain in the ****

WARNING: There are crooks hanging around the larger gas stations in Utah that will come up to you and tell you your tires and/or shocks are bad and should be replaced immediately. They want you to come to their shop just up the road and if you go there you will be scammed out of $1000 for shocks, and even more for tires.

Use Gasbuddy to find stations and Google Maps to look at the station to see if good for RVs.

X2 on what AudiDudi said. I also use an app called Trucker Path that shows fuel stops, rest areas etc that are suitable for truckers. If they can get in and out then so can I.

X2 on the Trucker Path I tried the app on the way back home to NC from Florida worked great. I use the diesel lanes at the truck stops so no issues with getting in and out.

Seriously.....it’s difficult enough to schedule a “good mechanic” in a relatively decent time for work to be done......and I’m to believe experts are standing around gas stations that can tell me my tires and shocks are bad just by glancing at them? Amazing.

The utah scammers are watching for senior citizens from out of state. Read this from Utah Atty General. I got hit in 2017.
