We have guests here with their Class C RV. Nice unit but......the fuel nozzle is the small one found at the auto-diesel pumps. They cannot use the truck lanes with the larger nozzle. This came out in a conversation about TSD Logistics. The program would be of no use to them as they cannot use the truck lanes. So we talked about a conversion or adapter. Anyone have any experience or insight into the feasibility?

Thanks, Friz

Over the years, have seen the large-to-small adapters around, would not know where to find one. Slip-joint PVC reducer might just be useable. Sure couldn't walk away from it at any time in use, tho.
On second thought, flow rate on the truck pump may be too high to use a reducer.

Sure, go ahead and buy the gas engine. Then you can drive around the neighborhood with the windows down, making a noise like a diesel!

Well not quite. First it is a guest and he does use Gas Buddy. But... as per discussion on another forum, the truck lanes at truck stops do have a auto diesel (small nozzle) at the far pump. I called the Loves in Hawthorne FL and they said "yes" the far pump is the small nozzle. Wonders never cease. So, all you guys with small nozzles can use the TSD Logistics card (big discount) and save Gas Buddy (paltry discount) for emergencies.
