Exclamation Diesel fuel question.

Have new 1500 diesel on order, delivery in a couple of weeks. My sister-in-law (she is a long haul roadie) says I cannot fill up at a commercial site because they have large fuel nozzles for fast filling and they will not fit my new baby. Can anybody confirm or deny this?
Thank You!!!!

Based on the pictures I've seen of the new style gas cap/door that's on the Ecodiesel I think it will fit. They definitely are larger but I can fit it in my 3500... The 1500 filler neck looks to be the same size to me.

FWIW, My girlfriends mom drives a TDI Jetta and she can fill up at the big nozzel pumps, so i would imagine that if they are putting a big enough filler neck in the Jetta then they would in the RAM

I have notice different size nozzles on your gas pumps and diesel pumps with the gas nozzle being a smaller diameter. So there is a standard for gas and diesel engines to accept the correct fuel required.

Default Filler neck

If the big nozzle will fit be very careful or you can end up with fuel where you would rather not have it. Saw a guy get the whole front of his clothes and shoes soaked. he was less than impressed.

Haha yes you definitely need to be careful when topping up on the high flow pumps. I've spilt fuel down the side of my truck a few times.... Never got it on myself though.
