I have never used the adapter and have found that when the fuel neck filler doesnt open properly as in when using the wrong nozzle you can still fill up with the fuel nozzle pressed up against the metal blocker in the fuel neck. You just have to pump slowly, the fuel still enters the tank. also make sure your car is unlocked.
