I seem to recall that rule only applies to gasoline since it is more risky to handle. You should be able to pump your own diesel in NJ, though you might encounter some resistance if the attendant doesn't know you have a diesel motor.

This adapter everyone keeps talking about.. I don't think I have one. My d is a cpo and there's a tool missing in the "trunk" the one in the middle. Is that where the funnel/adapter is supposed to be?
I never got my adapter either, but never have needed it over the course of several years. The empty slot is for a much smaller tool (stuff like an emergency sunroof opener, etc.). BMWs come to the USA missing several of those little tools, due to cost-cutting. There are a couple threads in the main E90 forum which tell you how to order those parts, if you are interested in having a complete set.
