The slow refueling was problematic to the older coaches like ours(2000). The entry point on our 2000, for fuel into the tank is at the middle of the tank. Not the best point for filling a container.

If you are buying a mid door, it will take two big nozzles!

We had all kinds of people walk over when we opened the front to fuel up - - they had never seen such a thing.

I have an 05 and it sucks fuel from any size nozzle as fast as you want to fill it. The only problem is paying the bill when it comes.

Even my antique '98 accepts the large nozzle. It also seems that when filling with the large nozzle, it fills up more completely on the initial fill. When using a small nozzle at Flying J, I have to keep dribbling the fuel in after the initial shutoff. That's a pain and time-consuming.

Does anyone know if the single sided fuel inlet can be "y"ed close to the tank and brought out the other side as well? This would allow using either side for fueling. Also the parts required.

Hello Iron Mike:

First I use large nozzles on my 01 38 ft, with no problems. You can not use the passenger side for a filling because of the stair case on front entry Alpine. The mid door models do not have the stair case blocking the plumbing to the tank.

Since I have the Avalanche, I have a different fueling set up with the access on the drivers side just aft of the driver position. I too can use the large nozzles without any problems except for a little splash when fueling at a very high flow rate.

Thanks Dave for your info. After having posted my question the thought occured to me that those steps might just be in the way.

Its -20 here and there's no way I'm going to get under there and look.It was a nice thought anyway.

Have never tried the large nozzle but will this spring. My experience has been it takes a long time to fill the tank completely with the smaller nozzles.

Thanks,Mike E.

Iron Mike- Now is precisely the time you should be under your coach for things like this.
And your coach should be under 26? latitude
