Marina Fuel Nozzle Too Big

I fueled up at a particular area marina for the first time, and I was surprised to find that their fuel nozzle was way too big for my fuel-fill-port-hole (whatever that is called).

To avoid any spillage, I had to gingerly fill up keeping the nozzle essentially flush to the opening. Have you ever run into that before? Are newer boats (mine is a 1979) made with larger ports? Other local marinas nozzles seem to fit okay.
