    Fueling in West Virginia

    I am from West Virginia, transplanted to the Buckeye state over a decade ago. When looking for fuel in West Virginia, as a general rule, NEVER choose a gas station that you can't clearly see from the highway. WV has narrow roads with little to no shoulder and no place to make U-turns or legal turn around. Never let your fuel drop below a quarter tank, especially with diesel. It is a great state to live and visit, but be careful...and no; contrary to the stereotypes, "Wrong Turn" is not an appropriate depiction of West Virginians. There are numerous fuel stations along the highways that are easy to get into and out of. The turnpike has slightly higher prices than other areas, but that is a rugged area, and getting tanker trucks there is costly.

      is what my nephew uses for his big rig.
      He also has another, but I have forgotten the name of it.
      You can plan you fuel stops ahead of time.

        We always fuel up at the Tarmack right outside Beckley when we travel thru WV. Why because we always know there is plenty of space to get in and get out. It's not always the cheapest but It is well lit and open all night and we use it as a stop over on almost all our trips that way. Its also has a dump station available.

          we have stopped there many times over the years and as you say it isn't usually the cheapest but it sure is convenient
