I was filling up gas earlier today at our local Costco, and when I was done I had a hard time pulling the gas nozzle out of the capless fuel filler. I had to really give it some force to get it out. Anyone here experienced this before? Thanks

car was punishing you for putting CostCo gas in it .....
Costco's gas is top-tier, as is Sam's. Don't knock what you don't know.

If you say so. I learned a long time ago no point in trying to present information to someone who has obviously drawn their line in the sand.

Costco in Ontario only has 91 octane... so that’s a hard no here. Perhaps top tier as it’s listed, but they need to get some 93 or 94 as 91 won’t cut it.
What do they sell in the US?
As for the nozzle getting stuck, I’ve had that on my other Ford. I think I pushed it in too deep and the way the nozzle had a bend kind of made it stuck. I ended up turning the nozzle a little to the side while removing it to get it to come out easier.
good luck!
That pic of the cop car earlier is not surprising lol

My friend with a 2019 Bullitt had the same issue. I’ve never had a problem when I fill up at Shell gas station.

Torinate It’s either 87, 89 or 91 here in Las Vegas

Sams gets gas from whomever (also a crapshoot to even get to the pump) and Costco gets only BP. When running 93 I only get Costco. But if they only offered 91 I would pass too. Never had any nozzle issues here. May have a swollen nozzle, better get that looked at ;-)

Maybe either the Costco nozzle openings are slightly oblong instead of being 100% round?

Our Costco has 87 and 93. I had to mix 50/50 on my Ram, since it specified minimum 89. It varies with region, apparently. On a recent road-trip to Colorado, I saw some 85.

I live in Vegas also, and regularly use Costco gas in my F-150, mustang, and wife’s Nissan. All of them have them have a cap less filler on them. Can’t say I have ever had this issue at any of the costco locations I frequent around town.
