2011 x5d; very strange; Diesel nozzle does not go in...

Very strange situation. My wife was driving today from Sacramento to Los Angeles for the holidays. She calls me this morning and says that she couldn't fit the Diesel nozzle into the tank (she has done it many times before). I say nozzle is probably bent; go to a different gas station. She does; same thing. This was Shell; she call on the attendant to help. He looks says there is something "stock" there and he is unable to insert the nozzle as well. After some gentle manipulation, he gets the nozzle in and puts in a full tank. She had an uneventful 5.5 hr drive. When she arrived, I open up the tank; the little square guard door is up; when I push on it, it does not give at all. No signs of any external or internal damage anywhere. Naturally, first call Monday is to BMW dealer. In the meantime, WTF is going on? Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks in advance.
