Shark,
I went to pep boys and bought a 3x1 12v receptacle. We charge our phones and my android pad with it. If you haven't got it, yet the "gas buddy" app has a listing of all the diesel availability by location and the price at each. You have to be careful of biodiesel though as its sucks you in with a lower price but my Mercedes dealers advises (& protag) advises to stay away from it.

I use small 12v to 110v inverters that plug into the cigar (accessory) receptacle.These allow me to power 110 v stuff when disconnected from shore power and driving or charge via USB when on shore power. I can also run my 110v laptop via the inverter when driving (not me! Stephanie.)

I always keep a few 12v-110v inverters in the gadget bag. I find them extremely versatile.

We use them to charge our three mobile devices when camping or at night. When driving we use any of the three 12v outlets in the Sprinter cab area.

We also have a small 12v crockpot and a small 75 watt inverter that plugs into 12v outlets. This small inverter s great for charging the laptop, camera batteries, shaver and electric tooth brush when dry camping. Not having to power the inverter for small loads saves some power.

The Gas Buddy app was one of the first ones along w/ the Propane Refill Station Locator app that I got after the AI.

My MB dealer and salesman also cautioned against bio diesel. I did have to use a few gallons of 5% once due to availability and a close to empty tank. No ill effects noted but now start looking as soon as the "Low Fuel" lite comes on which is at ~1/4 tank.
