Default Fueling up on West Coast

We may take a road trip from the Midwest to the West Coast. Will we have any trouble finding stations with the smaller diesel hose spouts -- the ones that fit cars, as opposed to the larger ones for trucks?
Thanks.

I just returned from a road trip from NC to Fresno California, down to Mexico and return to NC and I had no issues in finding fuel for my tdi.



I did at one location had to use my adapter filler...

Yeah - diesel pumps might not be at *every* station you come across, but I'd say it's in at least half of them, even in the major cities (San Diego, LA, SF). Along the interstates, the percentage is probably even a bit higher.
(And yes - all with the "car-sized" nozzles; only ever saw the jumbo nozzles at dedicated truck pumps.)

I've driven my TDI all over western states since 2003, and have never had issue finding diesel fuel. Not even when way out away from the population centers.
