I never tried it as I usually just use the Rv lane if provided or the regular pump if diesel is offered. Interested in if anyone has used the truckers pump and your experience. Also heard, not sure if true or not that the nozzles at these pumps were larger and couldnít be used. Thank you
Truck lane nozzles are twice or three times the size and pump fuel at a very high rate. Many passenger type vehicles canít accept the larger nozzle or keep shutting down because of the high flow rate. I use truck lanes only and I can pump over 75 gallons into my 100 gallon tank in less time than it takes to put 18 gallons of gas in the Grand Cherokee.
If you can and decide to use the truck lanes learn the etiquette. An individual towing a fifth wheel about got his butt kicked by a number of truckers that he was holding up while twiddling his thumbs at the pump after filling up.
