Diesel pump

I went out for the first fill up last night and found that the regular diesel nozzle does not fit into the filler tube on the jeep? I had to drive to another station and then had to try two different pumps until I found one to fit. It was dark so I couldnt see if I could remove something on the filler tube to enlarge it. I am not sure how many diesel stations will have the smaller nozzles.

Re: Diesel pump

That hasn't been my experience Never had problems at any station, that includes a couple truck stops that use the regular fat nozzles...

Re: Diesel pump

Truck pumps have bigger nozzles for faster fill ups of their larger tanks. You find these at most truck stops and occasionally at stations that cater to cars. Normally at car stations you will find the standard smaller size which will go in most any fill. One thing to keep in mind is those truck pumps will sometimes pump you the colored (or not) non tax fuel and while I've never known anyone to get busted for this you do hear the occasional story of someones brother who knew someone at work that had said their uncle was castrated because they got caught sneaking in a fill of the pink stuff.

Re: Diesel pump

I started at a truck fuelling place as uconnect showed that price at 6 cents less per gallon. These nozzles were the larger truck filling nozzles and were too big to fit. the next station I went to was a car filling place and the first pump had similar nozzles but I found a smaller one at a different pump at the same station.

Yikes - where do you live that truck stops aren't offering on-road taxed fuel? Some offer off-road fuel for use in the generators that power refrigerated trailers, but they are going to predominantly offer on-road.

I would be shocked if anyone ever thought to dip the tank of a Jeep for dyed fuel - but do know that a lot of the bigger privately owned trucks (3/4 and 1 ton pickups) do get dipped during stops and at places like cattle auctions where you see a lot of farmers. Fines are huge.

I'm in Puget Sound. The farmers and fishermen act allows some to qualify where normally they would not and there are in any event many of both in the area who do qualify without. There is also what I would guess is one of the highest per capita small boat ownership percentages in the nation here. I'm sure however that all those people spin around and move to the other side of the pump to fill their trucks after filling the boat. O_o

You do have a good point though, this area is probably not very well representative of the nation as a whole. And yes, I worded that poorly, what I see outside of the marine sales is a station offering both or on road only. Some people might not be aware that there is a difference though and that was what I was pointing out. I have used off road fuel all my life on the water and didn't learn about the road stuff till I got my first diesel truck back when since in the bulk fuel sales commercially (I burn about 4 gallons a minute on my boat) the fuel is not dyed. It was my thinking that other folks might not be aware of the pretty pink stuff and what it was.
