So this makes it easier to put diesel in a gasser?
Wouldn't that be premeditated stupidity?

No, that shouldn't fit in a gasser's filler neck.

There are three filler neck sizes - 21 mm for unleaded gasoline, 24 mm for leaded gasoline and for car diesel, and I believe 30 mm for trucks.

Some stations put 21 mm or 30 mm nozzles on car diesel pumps.

The BMW filler neck is designed to stay closed unless a 24 mm nozzle is inserted, exerting pressure on both sides of the filler neck, opening a flap that allows fuel to enter the tank.

So, that adapter opens the flap, and allows any nozzle, 30 mm or smaller, to fill the tank.
