I know it doesn’t fix the issue but in a pinch you could use the filler funnel under your back seat but you won’t have the auto shutoff when it’s full.

I'm surprised that we aren't hearing more complaints about this. Have you heard anything back from Ford?

I bought my first VW diesel a 2006 Jetta in 2007 and experienced this the first time I went to buy fuel. I didn't realize you could buy diesel at the regular pumps with the cars. 282K miles later this is NOT a problem. Just don't go pretend being a Semi as those nossels are WAY bigger and most fuel stations will have diesel at the regular pumps where all the gasoline engines go to fuel up. I take delivery of my 2018 Diesel King Ranch Friday can't wait.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Niko, I picked up new 2018 King Ranch diesel Wed night, and I can't stop wanting to go drive it. Absolutely love the truck! You're going to have an awesome Friday--have fun!

Does anyone sell an aftermarket fueling inlet to facilitate the larger nozzle? These were common for VW TDIs. I haven’t filled up my truck yet, but I looked and there is no gas cap on it. Is this normal on new diesels?

I am going to swap out the 26 gallon OEM tank for the Titan 48 gallon tank when it becomes available in April. As part of this swap out, I was going to see if I could get a fueling inlet to facilitate the larger nozzle. Not that I plan to go fill up where the big rigs do, but if I ever found myself where I need diesel and it isn't available in car lanes that I wouldn't have to hassle with it. Even some of the car lane diesel nozzles I have found don't fit in as far as others at some other stations--it seems there is a difference between fuel station brands on this.
