Fuel Filler Neck?

Although I've got a Glendale I imagine the question is fairly generic.

The filler on my Bedford is a nightmare. I have to mess around to get the pump nozzle to give more than a drop before cutting off, and then risk having fuel erupt from the filler neck.

It seems to be due to the angle of the pipe from filler to tank - Looks to be very flat for quite a way, meanning the bent filler nozzle doesn't really fit, and fuel doesn't get a lot of gravity assist.

Is there a known solution, or do I need to try to get ingenius with it?

I have the Advantura and I find a singular problem when putting petrol in it's a very slow filler which doesn't bother me much as I only put 10 Ltrs in now and again as I run on lpg.

Best remedy is to move the filler up the body side but this means going through the body floor and whatever unit is above the tank filler.

Meanwhile try a funnel with hose long enough to reach the bend in the tank filler neck.

I'd prefer not to hack holes in the sides (they're the tidiest part of the thing, even if they're attached to little more than rot and hope currently) so maybe a flexible funnel is the way to go then.

I don't mind a slow fill, but it can take a while to get the nozzle just right for anything other than a no fill!
