Anyone in CA having problems filling up with gasoline ?

Do the new "clean air" OVERSIZED gasoline pump nozzles fit thru your door and into your filler tube?

If not, have you found a solution?

Anyone in CA using the McCuff adapter? Go to McCuff® "No Splash, No Spill, Motorcycle Fill" Everyone Wants One! No Clicking Nozzles! More Miles from Tank! Top-Off EZ, Unique Motorcycle Biker Gift Fathers Day! Gas up your motorcycle with ease!

Filling my Jeep I hav'nt noticed any change in the nozzle and Flying J just installed new pumps. The diesel pumps on the truck islands are larger than gas and I have not had a problem fueling my M/H.

Don't know about the gasoline in CA but I filled up my truck yesterday at a local Chevron here in Lafayette LA and gas was $1.99/gallon. Of course that was a customer appreciation day.

YES. The California Air Resources Board has ordered all California Service stations to install a "new" low emission gas fuel nozzle. There always changing up things at California Service Stations. I have run into this nozzle lots when "trying" to add gas to my Winnebago. Seems the nozzle design does not allow the correct "fit" into the fuel filler on the Motorhome. Not getting the nozzle to fit means you have great difficulties getting your fuel. The item Scooter mentions is a fix to help us California owners of Winnebago motorhomes get our fuel on board. A fix is need as it seems Winnebago is not going to fix their design problem and of course the Air Board could care less that we have a problem.

I am attaching a picture of "the" nozzle. I have seen and used this exact type lots. The nozzle also is quite large and hits the top of the fuel door. Then you have to stand and hold the "rubber" boot up and then hold the nozzle had an angle to get it to flow fuel. An then if you push too much fuel through it closes off. One place took me like 10 minutes of standing and holding at the right angle to get 30 gallons of gas. After that I gave up. If the McCuff works it will be a great help for the investment.

Same nozzle as they have had for years. Turn it on it's side or even upside down.

Forest....you do not understand. The "newer" Winnebago units, at least some of them, like mine....you can not get these nozzles to fit right. Upside down or sideways does not work. You HAVE to HOLD on to the rubber boot while you hold the nozzle at a slight angle at the same time. Upside down does not fit. Sideways does not fit. Opening the handle to flow at a higher speed will also shut off the nozzle flow. BELIEVE me I have tried all kinds of ways. Standing next to fuel nozzle while holding and angling at a low fuel rate for like 15 minutes to get 20 gallons drives me crazy.
