Is this specific to the BMW filler tube? I want something like this for my TDI.
Well, BMW provides it for our cars, but I imagine other brands probably have something similar. Basically , since all diesel filler nozzles are 24mm I think, and gasoline ones are 21mm, your car should still have a 24mm slot, and If it has similar lock tabs it should work. Sounds like if your car won't accept a gasoline nozzle the designs can't be that different.
I'd check with a BMW store and find out. I think the other end of the adapter is intended for use with heavy truck nozzles (36mm? I forget all the exact measurements) but really, you should be able to stick a smaller nozzle in, if its one of those situations where a diesel nozzle breaks and the station only has a gasoline nozzle to repair it with, so they stick a gas nozzle on.
It's basically just a plastic tube, so I can't imagine it costs very much. I think it comes standard in the roadside kit in the trunk of a BMW.
