That's the way I do it as well. DavidBought a used 2009 SE5. Only three tanks through it. In AZ, we don't suffer the nozzle games CA riders that must deal with special vapor capture systems. Is it that way in Florida?
I insert the typical AZ nozzle completely, fast fill, but can only get maybe 3-4 gallons in the tank. At that point I hold the nozzle end just past the inlet plate and fill slow until I see splash back in the relief slots of the plate. Close to max fill at that point.
If you do have vapor capture nozzles, You may need to two hand the nozzle and hold back the vapor ring to get a faster fill without pump interlock stopping the flow. Hope this helps.
