I do, however the forum stated the file was too large. I have to keep a PDF under 300 mb. I scanned it in at 300 dpi and it was too big so I rescanned it at 75 dpi which is the one I put on the forum. I will keep trying at different resolutions to see if I can get it at a better resolution and still keep it so I can post it.
If that doesn't work, I will try to split it up into 2 parts and post it in two separate posts. Thanks for letting me know that it isn't readable.

OK, lets try this again. I've split the PDF into 2 parts. Here are Pages 1, 2.

It may not be that readable on your screen however it seems fine when copied to your screen and printed out. Would someone please do that and let me know if it is good. If that fails, you can always email me at ranchray@yahoo.com and I will email the file to you.

Better yet, the original Excel format.

I took a quick look on me computer where I thought the original file would be but couldn't find it. I will look again in different folders and see what I come up with.

I found the original Excel file for the Flying J locations. It was not under the name I thought it would be. If anyone wants either a PDF or the original file, email me (address in post above) and I will get it back to you. Phew!

Note that you don't have to print and scan the file to create a pdf. Just change the printer and "print to pdf"--the resulting file will be far smaller than a scanned one is.

(Several software packages, including Microsoft Office install PDF printer drivers.)

Thanks for that info. I had originally printed it out for myself so I could keep a copy in my RV. I thought I lost the original Excel file so that's why I took my printed copy and scanned it in. Now that I've found the original, anyone wanting it can email me.

that's what I was thinking about it.

Blocking other vehicle movement would seem to be a bigger issue than blocking pumps. A couple of weeks ago an inconsiderate RVer almost caused gridlock at a Florida Turnpike Plaza while fueling his long Class C with Jeep in tow.

Flying J also has an app that we use that will show maps of the closest one to you

FYI- there is a new Flying J on I69 between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne that does not have the RV lanes. I hope that is not a sign of things to come from Flying J.

I've been concerned about that myself since Pilot bought Flying J. More often than not after a buyout the purchased business becomes more like the purchaser than vice versa. I experienced the same a couple of years ago when my satellite TV provider was purchased by my telephone service provider. Although they said they were still operating as a separate business, it wasn't long until I started to seeing the same from them that I disliked about the phone company. Hopefully, we will not see any of the things we like about Flying J going away in their current stations.

We generally fuel up at BJís. Block 1 pump & use the other. We try to get there when itís not too busy. Toad not yet set up but should be ok because using the space of 2 pumps will allow enough length for rig & toad.

Also Iíve found some Cumberland Farms have gas tanks with their truck pumps

I just filled up at the brand new Buc-ees in Katy TX on I-10. It was my easiest fill up ever. It feels like they have acres of gas pumps. Love Buc-ees!!

When I'm traveling I tend to use truck stops (diesel pusher) but around home I pull into my local grocery store during off peak times and fill up with fuel using my points to get a dime per gallon discount. I do block an extra pump and don't have the toad with me. I hope I'm not impeding traffic but if I am I'll be fueled up in about 20 minutes. At that point I might have to wait on the cars to move so I can get out

You can get the app,"Allstay", I think it cost $10. It has filters so you can see the gas stations and will show if the Flying J has a RV lane or not. You can get on their web site to see their fuel price. You can also use the filters to see low bridges, rest stops and other info that may help you. I also use this app to check out the CG that I want to stay at. It has been worth the $10. I paid for it.

Allstays is a great app. Unfortunately the author has pulled support from Android devices. It will only be available for iOS or web access.

It will still work on Android devices. But it is no longer available on the App Store and it will not be updated.

Android users can still use their web browser to access the information.

If you use Flying J or Pilot gas stations when you travel you get a discount per gallon with your Good Sam card. You get a better discount if you get the Flying J/Pilot credit card.
