Re: 2014 diesel filler size

I see a lot of yellow diesel nozzles at the stations I go to, and gasoline nozzles are usually black. Or at least the diesel nozzle looks like it would be yellow if you cleaned off the grime. I wonder if picking colors that didn't show dirt would help improve the American perception of diesels.... It sticks in mind that I have been to places where they used green for diesel fuel, but also some where green was the kerosene pump (obviously that was back when you could still buy kerosene at gas stations).

Not that it matters for the Jeep since the larger size nozzle apparently fits, but in the US I think the car-size diesel nozzles actually come in two slightly different sizes. And I've heard that some filling stations hook the smaller nozzles up to the same high pressure pumps as the big nozzles, which will be a big surprise if you're filling a can. This is one area where we really don't have an accepted standard.

Re: 2014 diesel filler size

I know this is an old thread, but it finally happened to me. I pulled up to a Diesel pump that had the large nozzle. It fit in the first opening,but didn't go as far in as the small nozzle I usually use. I discovered two things right away, (1) it was a high volume pump, and (2) it didn't fit in the capless mechanism further down the filler tube. In an instant I was soaked in Diesel. Not sure I'm a fan of the capless fuel filler. I won't be using the large nozzle again!

Re: 2014 diesel filler size

Don't know what all the fuss is about......25 gallons using a regular "vehicle" diesel nozzle doesn't take but a couple of minutes. Why risk splashback trying to use the "truck size" nozzles????


When we had our motorhome, we used truck stops and, yeah, it was way quicker loading up 100 gallons using the "trucker" nozzle !

Before inserting the nozzle, just get a couple of paper towels located around the pump and put them under the filler cap. Plenty of room there.....also a drain hole.

Some stations only have the big truck-size nozzles for diesel. Or the car diesel pumps are hard to spot and people miss them, or they're all in one row so one guy towing a trailer blocks half of them and people buying gasoline block the rest.

I used to work with a guy who took a little VW TDI car on a cross-country road trip. He said there were stretches of highway where none of the stations he tried had a nozzle that fit.

The filler neck on the JGC Diesel accommodates the small and medium size nozzles. The largest ones found in truck islands don't fit, as mentioned before.

I have yet to see a diesel pump co-located with gas pumps that has the largest nozzle.
