I'm such a diesel noob. My first fill up.

The nozzle would not go all the way in my tank. It stuck about 8 inches out. I didn't think this was normal and persisted. But it just wouldn't go in. It also didn't have normal petrol nozzles with boots to seal the connection from fumes or spillage. (California). So it never made a seal either. It took forever too!

It then stopped and overflowed all over the side of the car!

Diesel smell? What diesel smell? Didn't smell at all.

That was fun. I felt like a 16 year old filling up his first tank of gas.
