CA fuel filler issue

Help: Does anyone know of a conversion kit to allow the use of new CA approved gasoline filler nozzles? I was told by the station operator to hold the rubber back to fill, high risk of spill or face full. Looking for a side mount filler port?

thanks

What you talking about Willis?

I moved the stock filler to the side and plenty of others have done the same or used a TJ filler with no issues. I usually have to hold the nozzle up so it does not shut off, but that seems true with all my vehicles now.

Hold the nozzle up! It's a yj, even gassing up is frustrating.

You can hold the rubber piece back, you can lift up on the nozzle, you can move the filler to the side, etc. Those rubber boots have been on the pumps for at least ten years so not sure where you've been on that. I moved mine and used the TJ bezel and YJ filler, then later swapped in the TJ filler.
