Don't pay too much attention to this "guarantee"...
The larger nozzles fit all Ford diesel trucks (no personal experience with the other brands). I've also never seen a professional RV transport driver, or private RV driver get "yelled at" because he was fueling where he is legally entitled to be fueling.
I drove OTR for several years as well. What truck drivers get frustrated with, is someone who is rude or inconsiderate (OTHER TRUCK DRIVERS INCLUDED). Truth be told... I've yelled at other truck drivers (because they KNOW better). In my personal opinion, the above attitude is indicative of one of the many things that is wrong with the professional driving industry today.
Here's some real world advice:
If you're traveling with someone - wife - friend - etc. Send them into the store fuel counter with the credit card to authorize the pump as you pull into the pump. Once you are done pumping, pull forward and clear of the pump to allow another driver to access the pump as you go in and get your receipt, etc. Don't dawdle... nothing worse than than the driver behind you being done... and sitting, waiting on you to come back to your rig.
As a former OTR trainer, I will give you the one piece of advice that I gave all of my trainees... "Do your job / drive your truck in a manner that makes it easier for all other drivers to do their job / drive their truck."
Follow the above advice, and you'll be fine.
I've seen PLENTY of so called "professional" drivers be complete jerks on the fuel lanes - in parking lots - all over the place. Driving a truck doesn't make you a professional. The true professional driver doesn't care WHAT you drive... only HOW you drive.
