When filling up with diesel it is difficult to get the nozzle fully into the filler pipe. Is the obstruction in the picture intended to stop diesel being put into a petrol vehicle (should it have been removed?). I am concerned that as it is awkward getting the nozzle in and out that the repeated knocking and forcing against the same area will cause damage to the filler pipe.

Not had a problem filling up, so have not looked in mine will try and have a look tomorrow in daylight and report back, I know the gun will not go in as far as the splash ring but have never had any fuel splash out

Thanks for having a look,it's handy that there is someone to compare with. I was convinced it was to restrict the inlet size for a petrol engine, I wonder what it is for?.
6 days and 400 miles on, the Yeti has lots of things to find and get used to, it makes my old Mazda seem primitive.

I know I was still finding things after a year, found out what the hill hold control feels like today on a little off road adventure with my dealer, will put up a few pics in the gallery soon.

Yes, I know where you're coming from. It's not the easiest car in the world to fill. I think compared to my old 156, it's because the filler neck is higher up so you have to consciously lift & angle the nozzle more. l seem to get the nozzle jammed in more so these days though. Glad it's not like the Q5 which also has the fill point for the "eco wee-wee" tank in there too.
