Diesel fueling tip... with airbag leveling

I thought I would share this, as it works very well.

For those of you that have airbag leveling systems. I find that when I pull into a fueling station, I quickly adjust the coach to slant over to the right, such that the fuel neck (on the left side of coach) is raised up. This makes fueling much better and faster as the air can escape easier and the tank can be filled nearly full, instead of... less than full. I also find it is less likely to spit back at you.

Zbug- check the air return line from your tank to the filler cap. If it is below the top of the filler tube (like zip tied to the side or bottom), rotate it around so it is over the top of the filler for its full length. If fuel can burp back into the air return tube, it will lay there, sometimes for a long time, & restrict fill rate causing fuel to spit back at you.
