Truck Stop Flag city 1-31-14 1

The fuel island of the Flag City, CA (near Lodi, CA) Flying J truck stop. Taken by a Nikon D610 at ISO 400 with a Nikkor 35mm ƒ 2 AF-D lens.


Red truck has pulled ahead to fuel the reefer unit on the trailer... from right to left, that's a Kenworth, a Volvo, a Freightliner, and another Volvo. (the red tractor)


A note for non-truckers that may read this: trucks can carry up to 300 gallons of diesel fuel on the tractor! (although 200 is more usual...) and (if the trailer is a refrigerated unit...) as much as 100 gallons more on the trailer! (assuming that the trucker just fueled up...) Think of that, the next time you're tempted to cut off a big-rig...
