Sorry if this has already been posted:)
In case you haven't been to the new gas station in Nicolaus....it's on 99 but only 2 miles from 70 and Nicolaus exit.
convenient for me with a child at East Nic, but also nice if you are heading to Sac or back....just stay on 99 then cut over.http://maps.google.com/maps?q=3499+Powe ... 95659&z=16
If link didn't work, take the Nic exit, either go straight to 99, then make a left OR, turn left at Marcum and when you get to Lake Minden's gate, make that right and that will take you right to the station.
It is clean, has a little store and the people are very friendly. Not the cheapest to fill up, but enough to get you where you need to go:)
