So heading for Talladega wed for NASCAR race. Coming from central indiana I'll be traveling down I65. Don't want to travel with a full tank to reduce weight in my TT. Do truck stops or rest areas have potable water available for us campers? I know @ campground they have trucks that will fill us up for $$$. But trying to get at least on freebie.

where will you be overnighting on the trip down? You can overnight at a state park for cheap and fill it there so it won't be the whole trip. Filling the tank at home won't affect your gas mileage too much so unless you are that close on towing capacity (and hopefully you aren't), I would just fill at home. I would not trust filling at a truck stop or rest stop.

I know some gas stations will let you fill up from their faucet if you purchase fuel from them, but I agree with Anaro just fill up at home, that way you know what kind of water your getting and you can use the bathroom on your trip.

JRod,
All I can tell you is be careful on I65. I travelled there last year and the entrances to the bridges have some pretty good gaps. Quite a bone-jarring experience I must say. Have a safe trip and good luck with the water whatever you chose to do.

Jim

My pleasure, that trip is when the wife and I learned about "securing" all the doors on cabinets. We had quite a mess when we got to Kentucky I must say. I will actually look for other roads to travel now. It beats slowing down to 40...I'm sure that doesn't please my fellow drivers.
