Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

It is most likely the nozzle you are attempting to use. Have you ever got gas at this particular station?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Visiting for Christmas in Rochester area so no have not used this gas station before
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 6 months ago.

OK. There is a funnel in your cargo area. I can check to see where it is but I assume under the cover in the back. If you cant find it let me know. But try putting that in there. If it goes the nozzle is your issue rather than the filler. See page 6 of the attached document about the funnel.

Let me know if you need anything further.
