No the nozzles are the same here - except 4star (the old leaded stuff) which does have wider nozzle - BUT -. they are colour coded, trouble was he had a diesel van for work but its gone to the great scrappers yard
so he is using his Jeep for work which uses petrol. ..still with me
When he took mine to be filled up, I think he was just so used to putting petrol in his jeep, that he was on 'auto-pilot' and just grabbed the petrol nozzle
Aint it worse putting diesel in a petrol, wouldn't that jigger everything up, cos diesel is so thick & gloppy eewww ! it would plug up the catalytic converter and something about diesel having a higher flash point
sorry its a man thing this subject
