Diesel Station Pumps???

So I am not one to pump my own fuel, NJ doesnt allow it and since I work so much I dont get out of the state that often. I went on my trip to NC last week and I ran into the same thing in two places. One station was a BP and one was a Royal Farms. Both nozzles didnt fit in my truck, can someone explain to me why??? I had to stand and hold the pump to create the vacuum so it would go in, the 2nd time at BP i turned my head for a second only to find out that I was going to take a bath in diesel fuel when it shot back at me.

You were at the big rig pumps. If you want to solve that issue order a filler neck from a 2001 up truck. The big ones will fit

I tried 2 pumps at one station, one had a green handle and one had a black one and they both wouldnt work. What if you have a diesel car? The Royal Farms only had 1 diesel pump as well. I figured it was my filler neck but I mean come on! I looked like an idiot trying to pump fuel into my truck when in that sense I am not! Thanks for the help.

That's because the filler neck on your truck is the newer style. My brother's got a 2000 PSD and has the same problem. The pumps for the big rigs have a larger oriface and flow more fuel quicker. Some stations don't carry diesel in pumps with the automotive style nozzle. In '01 they changed the fill neck on our trucks.

I didn't know they put a smaller filler neck on the 99's. That has to suck, I fill up at truck stops a lot too and found that some pumps are a tighter fit than others.

Yep my 2000 was the same way, the fix will take 15 min and a dremel tool. The filler neck is held on with three screws around the cap, you will need to loosen the two hose clamps underneath, then simply remove the filler neck. Take a dremel took with straight cutter head and cut the thin sheetmetal back all the way, this will open it up nice and big and now you can use the Big Boy bumps. Wash the shaving out real goo and reinstall, honestly takes almost as long to type as it does to actually do it.

!

The diesel pumps on the big rig side are the large nozzle. The diesel pumps on the side with the gasoline are the small size.
