Every now and then I run into the problem were the diesel nozzle wont fit into my truck. It can be a real pain when I have a trailer and pull up to the truck side of the diesel and it wont fit so I have to get turned around and start over. If it wasn't for the ring of the nozzle it would fit in. Has anyone out there modified there fill to make the hole bigger. Or do you just deal with it.

if your talking about the "big rig side" of the fuel stops then it should fit, or should i say it fits in mine fine.

you may be able to get a dremel in there and make it larger

Sounds like your bed, or at least your filler, may have been swapped with a gasser at some point? They make them smaller I know. Just a thought.

They all fit in mine.

I always use the Big Rig nozzle and it fits I use them cause they put some new kind of nozzle on the regular ones so it's harder to top off. It's like all or nothin.

The 99 trucks got a smaller Diesel filler tube for "Auto Diesel" rather than than "Over-the-road-truck diesel".

I had one like that.

Take the filler neck off the tank, and unscrew the cap flange from inside the fuel door. Then take a dremel to it. blow it out, and reinstall it.

Some big rig fuel stations have a pump handle that has a huge flange on it. I can only fit the tip in mine. They are set up for high pressure and put out about a gallon every couple of seconds.

I have this too. Any chance of pics of how to take the filler neck off and unscrew the cap, etc... I am tired of having only one pump work for me due to the smaller hole.
Thanks.

i had an 01 that had the smaller hole, i never done anything with it, but, you can unbolt the flange from the bed and loosen the hose clamp from the fill hose, then use the tool of your choice to open up the opening, or replace the flange with a newer larger one, either way it wouldn't be a big job.

i never done it to mine because i have fuel here at home, but on the road towing a trailer it always a pain

I had the smaller hole on my 99. It had a plastic restrictor on it. I used a hack saw blade and a shop vac and cut it out.
