Symptom: You're fuel line is getting soft and spongy, and you notice it's wet to the touch, or bubbling when on.

1. Get some replacement hose, 1 meter would be more than enough for 1 job, AND you'd then have some for emergencies, and they do happen. Once my engine was steaming and I opened it up, one of my return fuel lines had popped off. So it does happen! I was also glad I don't drive a GASOLINE CAR, otherwise my car, and maybe I wouldn't be here today.


2. Just unplug the faulty fuel line and cut a piece to fit, and replace, making sure it's on REALLY TIGHT!

3. Remember to replace the end cap.

4. Start up the car and check for leaks. This should be no problem.


"They" Say you should get some of that nifty Vitron Tubing...

I do NOT like this tubing, it breaks at the ends. I don't care if it lasts longer using biodiesel, the broken ends don't work.
