I have a beautiful 1977 Toyota Corolla wagon (45k miles by the way) which I've just imported into California from Colorado. In the past year, all California gas stations have had to install a new kind of fuel pump nozzle, much shorter than before. On first trying to pump gas into my car, I found that the nozzle could not reach as far as the gas-tank-neck. It is not a matter of pulling back on the rubber thing, or trying to make an air lock -- the nozzle just won't reach into the right hole.
Has anyone encountered this problem, and if so, have you found a solution?
