Rubber Fuel Line Replacement

Hi everyone

I filled up my tank and after a 15 minute drive around the neighborhood, I noticed some gas leaking under the tank when I got back into the garage. Upon further inspection, I can see gas on the outside of the rubber fuel line (between tank and line) on the lip of the tank.

Can I safely pull that rubber line off and replace it, or will fuel keep spilling out? I pulled the rubber hose on the line side and there was a strong flow of gas so I re-connected it. Any help, much appreciated!!

Thanks!

Some gas still in the line will leak out....won't empty tank, but wouldn't leave it disconnected over night either.

Re: Rubber Fuel Line Replacement

I suggest you open the gas cap as well before removing the rubber hose; this relieves the pressure from the gas tank.

Suggestion: If you replace the one length by the tank, might as well replace the other two pieces; pass side rear tire and f/pump inlet.
