How to mod fuel fill?

How do you modify the fuel fill tube so that I can use the larger high flow nozzles at truck stops? I don't know if all Excursions come this way but mine can only fit the small nozzle at the station I go to but the 18 wheelers use a different pump they have out back and I can't fit that one. I read that the fuel will be better quality at the truck pumps? I asked the station owner and he said the fuel is turned over in the tanks out back 3x as much as the one out front where I currently have to get it from.

2000 Ford Excursion 7.3, AIS intake, 4" MBRP exhaust, PHP Hydra Chip, Bilsteins (5100 in front and 4600 in back) and x code front springs to be added when I can find the time to put them in.

My 2002 diesel fits all nozzles as well BUT the flow on some of the 18 wheel truck pumps are so fast that it triggers the pump to stop as if it was full. I have to set it at the first notch on the pump handle and it is normally fine then.

2002 limited Ultimate with 2nd row captains chairs. Added front leaf with 20X10 -12 offset (5" backspace) Fuel Hostage wheels with 34" Michelin LTX AT2 275/65/R20 (34") tires

Not to be a jerk but why would it be this size on the 00-01 and bigger on the 02? the tanks are the exact same I believe so there is no reason that the 00-01 couldn't be modded
