This is always a problem for motorcycles too, but I found this 
solution:

www.aerostich.com/catalog/US/E-Z-Fill-Nozzle-Key-p-17026.html 

It's $8.00 and works well.  Also, on the D, I found that I have to 
keep the base of the nozzle (the part where the hose attaches) 
pointed towards the front of the car.  If the nozzle points off to 
the side, it will click off almost immediately.  The vapor recovery 
nozzles are mandatory in California and some other areas also, I 
believe (Specifically Robert, I think they are required in Las Vegas 
now).  I always thought they were just another idiotic government 
requirement that just cost us extra money, but several years ago I 
found out differently.  On a trip in Ohio, when I stopped to get 
gas, the smell was so strong I thought I had a leak or had spilled 
some fuel.  Instead, it was just what happened without the nozzles 
to contain the vapors.  I'm a believer now.
