I've been "stuck" in the trucker lane for 30+ minutes after fueling was done... Once your at the pump, your choices are nill with trucks behind you..

Once they pull forward and go inside the store to shop, use the bathroom, eat, whatever you are there till they leave.

I do look for Flying J's and their RV islands..... usually much faster... USUALLY, not always [emoticon]

First to the OP's question, sometimes your card will read.
As to being trapped, well the last Loves I got DEF in I had to back out of. Because the driver ahead was still MIA after I went in paid for and pumped my DEF.

Get a fuel card! I got a TSD Logistics EFS card last year. It works at most all the truck stop pumps and gets a discount if available.

You have to link to a bank account and payment is automatically deducted from your account within a day or two. Just set up a extra bank account to use for it and only keep fuel $ in it.
The name changed recently to Open Roads.

You only need to go inside if you want a receipt or snacks. (my wife is much happier!)

From the website - By joining our program you will have access to discount diesel prices at specified locations such as Loves and Travel Centers of America. Current members are saving 30 to 40 cents per gallon off the pump price. There are no signup fees or membership fees to join. There are no long-term contracts to sign and no hidden fees.

Note: not all stops offer that large of a discount, they have an app to track real time price after discount at participating stops so you can decide where to go. Just checked the local Petro #57 in New Paris, Ohio. Shows the price with card is $4.112. Loves #222 3 exits away is 4.969 with card! Pump Patrol says Fuel is 5.24 at Loves not using the card. Petro is not listed.

There are semi drivers that are worse than RVers at the truck stops....ask me how I know.....one that comes to mind: 2 truckers were BSing with their cells phones, when I asked them if the one blocking me could move up, he just looked at me, and continued BSing with the driver next to him....I had to back up and change lanes.

Never pass up a Buc-ees. Cheapest fuel and best shopping. Good food. No tramps in the parking lot. Never had an issue getting a spot.
The Good Sam card works pretty good though at Pilot/Flying J. No need to go inside. Automatic debit.
