Remove filler restrictor on fuel tank..

How does this come out? Is this welded in? The metal restrictor and spring-loaded flap prevent the accidental filling of diesel fuel - I recently converted to diesel and will have to carry a funnel to the filling station until I get this restrictor removed or change out the filler neck completely...

I cut mine out with a hole saw, 1-1/2"....I think. Of course you'll have to remove the hose to prevent the shavings from ending up in the tank.

Jason, I have a loose filler neck out in the garage that I just went and looked at. The restrictor (oval shape) is female and looks to be press fit onto a male piece of the filler neck. I can't tell if its welded but you can feel that it is two pieces by removing the gas cap and running your finger inside.

So, a blow torch and some pliers ought to do it? Assuming it's removed from the truck of course :-)
