Re: Marina Fuel Nozzle Too Big

I've got the same issue on my boat (fitted with Yanmar diesel from the factory in 1977). A standard Diesel nozzle is just about the same size as the fuel fill. I usually fill up from Jerry cans, but if I stop at a fuel dock it can be very tedious to fill.

To make it easier I use a Mr Funnel

l don't honestly know if it is an effective effective filter or moisture remover but at least it makes filling up easier.
