You've been given a lot of good advice! It's not uncommon for a MH to get splash back, some of it has to do with the shallow angle of the filler neck, some with the speed of the pump. You might want to look at this site: Accents & Extras they sell stainless steel pieces that are supposed to direct the fuel away from the coach.

So, I decided that since I am retired and not in a hurry, I'll use the first click on the handle pump stop. Yep! Much slower pace, takes longer, but what is 5-7 minutes more of my time. I use it to walk around and check things out on the coach, or wash the windows if they need it.

For those times I am standing by the pump and it kicks off I wait about 15-20 seconds than I slowly start pumping again. At the next burp, I'm done. It may not be exactly full, but it is more than enough fuel to get me to my next fuel stop.

Topping off is not my way to go. My hands stay dry.

p.s., Diesel fuel is very detrimental to paint. Even water does not get it off. It needs a good cleaning.


Smart! Why didn't i think of that!!

When using the large truck island pumps......they were designed to fill a big trucks fuel tanks w/4" hole in the top of the tank, now you pull in and try using the same pump through a 2" hole......and most of the time the distance from where you are fueling to the tank is short......so when full......it does not take much to shoot up your 2" fill line and it has no time to shut off........stinky!
I am lucky, the gentleman I bought my Coach from said the tank will make a "booming" sound when it is full(tank flexing) and to stop pumping as soon as I heard that sound.....he was right! Stinky! Now wife watches the fuel gauge and when close to full she tells me and I slow it down and when the boom is heard....shutdown. Full.

I fueled at a TA truck stop the other day. I used both fast fill nozzles (I have filler necks on both sides) and pumped 80 gallons in a matter of a few minutes. No splash back, no issues.

That's the difference between Gas and Diesel.

Diesel foams, then burps. Hence the splash you get. Prior to my current, diesel, I had 2 gas coaches and never happened.

But I needed 60, at 40 I slowed, and 50 I really slowed, at 60.8 CLICK, no splash. I got it down now

Even though Truck stop pumps will fit in your nosle, they are high speed pumps and will cause foaming. If you are using a truck stop pump I would not pull past 1st peg. I have never had a problem that way

When available, I hit the RV island at Flying J truck stops. The diesel nozzles there are more like gas size and pressure. Takes a little longer but a lot less likely to splash back. Gives me time to scrub bugs off the windshield. They have gas, diesel, LP, air, water, and sewer dump all at the same island! Now if they would just add DEF...

Too funny!
