I'm getting ready to order my first BMW (X5d) and want to make sure I won't have any issues filling it up :o

I spilled some diesel the first time I was filling my 35d as the spring on the nozzle wouldn't let it go in.

Now I wait for the tank to nearly empty and fill 21 gallons. I guess the capacity is 22.5..I use the best guess. I haven't found a gas station that would automatically shut off on diesel like gas because of this nozzle.
