Default New Filler Neck

Anyone had their car serviced at VW lately? I just had my compressor replaced and they swapped the filler neck and installed a device to prevent mis-fueling. Gasoline nozzles won't fit now, kind of interesting.

Default Huh?

You must not have been reading much on the forum lately. There have been numerous threads about the misfueling TSB. This one has gone on for 6 pages.

All well and good until some jack wagon gas jockey replaces the one diesel pump nozzle with a gas one...

rms85702 is right!! Apparently a common issue; I once had to drive to 5 pumps at 3 different stations before I could find a diesel nozzle that would go into my tank!

Which is yet another reason that YOU should not wait until the last minute to fuel up your TDI.
I capitalized YOU because nobody else decides when or where YOU stop for fuel.
Don't forget that the color of the pump handle has no bearing on what product comes out the spout.

Yeah, sorry I've been in and out. Hasn't really caused me any heartache yet, and no full service fuel stations in Texas, so I think I'll be okay.

If I have to go to the dealer for something I think I will tell them not to install this safety devise unless they are going to give me the adapter to use other size nozzles. I think the dealer is finished for me now that I have 85,000 miles and the dry area I live in I don't expect any exhaust valve problems.

Bill, I whole heartedly agree with you. I my self don't really wait until the last drop if fuel is pumped from the tank to fill up. I try to keep at least a half tanks worth of fuel in the car.

Your also right about how no one decides when I stop for fuel, its usually my bladder that decides.

Since a gas nozzle is narrower, how exactly does the new device work?

Just filled up today with the misfuel device. What a treat that was only took 15 minutes to pump 11 gallons. I could hear the fuel rising up the tank then click like every 10 seconds. What a joke this thing is. They should have called the no fuel adaptor. Lol

Could also tell them not to install it into YOUR car.

My 2013 came with this already installed. I have never had this problem when filling up.
