Bursons in Osborne Park have a different brand which they put on all their diesel work vehicles due to miss-fuelling by staff but they didn't have one to suit the capless GC's about 1.5 years ago.
That Solo-diesel device sounds great in fact brilliant if it does what it promises. I'd like to see more user comments. There are two possible issues that I can see:
1. Does is restrict the flow at all?
2. In the bush some servos have only a high flow pump. The nozzles don't fit the Jeep but I've filled mine with one by being very careful and only half squeezing the lever. I expect the solo-diesel would have to be removed. Is this easy?

Re: GC Diesel & fuel filler nozzle (Australia)

I haven't got one but I looked at the way they work. It uses the wider diesel nozzle to push open'gates' to allow the nozzle in so doesn't restrict flow. Not sure if it's easily removable though sorry.
