Using gasbuddy.com

I just bought a 2009 Roadtrek 170 Popular, which is perfect for me, since I am single again and like to boondock along rivers and lakes at undeveloped spots. The RT gets me into spots that most RVs cannot go.


One tip I have is going to gasbuddy.com, which I was using to find the cheapest gas prices locally. Then I found their "heat map" which shows the whole US with counties that are color-coded with dark green being the lowest average prices in the county. You can zoom in or out to get more info. By going a few miles out of the way, you can fill up before going into the expensive resort areas. It is a powerful tool and will save you big bucks as you travel.

When I retire in 3 years, I plan on using the RT to travel the US and see all the things and places that I have not been to yet. I think it will be hard to find me at times as I go wandering into the back country.

Used the app as we travelled up to Montana, Idaho, and Utah several times now. Definitely saved on fuel costs. Makes the trip's fuel stops planning easier.
