The only issue is when I pull the nozzle out, the last few drips always get on the paint due to the tilt (or lack of) but thats with all my cars. Just a couple shakes and it solves that issue 

 

My wife's car (2013 model) has a sticker on the gas door that says "wait 5 seconds before removing nozzle". Oddly enough, this works every single time.

So i can hardly see the back side of full install but from what i see laying here ( 4 holes in my Mazda unit) i assume you re-drilled or used self taping screws  to match the holes already in car and plate that was cut down from OG inlet??

Correct. I used self-tappers to do the original mockup, and then I removed them one at a time and replaced them with nice flat allen headed bolts.

Those Injen couplings look like they are from an air intake system. Do you know if they are fuel safe?

Yeah, they're silicone, from air intake, just temporary till I can find fuel grade

Ok cool. As long as it's temporary.

Other than an Isuzu Pup what is another compatible filler neck hose I can use that has the proper bend in it? I can't find one. Thanks in advance.

I can't remember what I pulled mine from.. might have been a Mazda or a Dodge something around the same year.

Time for an Update: It's still leak and smell free since I did it. I love it.

 

 

 

 

Where can the Mazda b2200 filler neck be found?

Most self serve wrecking yards have a few Mazda PU in them. (depending on your area I guess)

Yup, haven't had an issues myself either since I've done this.  Nice not having fuel on the side of the my.

 

My only problem  isn't related to the filler neck.  Can't fill my tank up too much or fuel seeps out of the welds where the fuel pump was welded in at.   Need to take it out and reseal the tank.
