This is probably going to sound like paranoid over-preparation but I'm asking anyway because I refuse to be the new gal who gets stranded without fuel because she was too shy to ask.
In another thread about getting gas in Fernley, someone wrote:I'm taking a 16' rental truck with a 55 gallon tank. The RV place in Fernley or truck stop would need a hose to get up about 8' to the top of the tank in the gate.
I'd been operating under the assumption that the gas tank was at, y'know, gas tank height. Anybody else have trouble like described above when getting their truck gassed up? Or have trouble getting fuel because their truck was too tall to fit near the pump?
Also, my truck will take diesel. I don't think I've ever been to a major, highway-side gas station (in the US) that didn't have diesel for sale, but Google Maps is telling me that the closest place to get diesel is about halfway to Fernley from Reno. But then Google Maps also doesn't seem to know about the Nixon gas station mentioned in the Survival Guide, so maybe I should just listen to the survival guide instead of Google...
tl;dr Where can I get diesel into my box truck, nearest to the playa?edit:
Found some good info on where to gas up here: http://www.burningman.com/preparation/travel_info/
but I would still like advice on which (diesel-selling) gas stations are friendliest for large, boxy vehicles. Thanks!
It makes sense if you don't think about it.
