      A few months ago, when I first brought my car home, like many of you have probably experienced, I had what amounted to a small fuel leak. I determined it to be from rusting hose clamps and a deteriorating filler neck to tank hose.
      Being a large supplier of universal silicone hose products, I immediately came to the realization that we could find something to easily work as a replacement.
      Since standard silicone rubber isn't suitable for oil nor fuel transfer, a special flourolined silicone must be used instead, so I immdiately placed an order for the appropriate stuff.
      I have finally received the right stuff to offer a suitable replacement product.
      41mm ID Flourolined Silicone Fuel Hoses
      Cut to length for a direct swap with your worn out OEM filler neck to tank hose.
      These hoses are temperature rated to 338 degrees F and have a burst pressure rating of about 17 BAR (246.5 PSI). Clearly overkill for their intended useage. The clamps are approved for military use by NATO and have a smooth inner band so as not to damage the hose as normal worm drive clamps can.
      There are two versions. though I am not 100% sure which cars use which version, but both are available.
      7 inch hose w/ clamps - $28.00 + shipping
      16 inch hose w/ clamps - $56.00 + shipping
      Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

      Mine is an '80 and also uses the shorter hose, but I know there is some application that uses the longer version.
      So far, I've cut about 6 short ones and 2 long ones from the meter lengths I ordered and I'll be doing more tonight, so I'll have plenty to go 'round! [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I'm not sure if I need the short or long version,... my ruler always says things are longer than they actually are
      Might be worth swapping on one of the longer metal filler necks so I can get a cheaper short hose.
      Are they rated to handle biodiesel?

      Not to hijack, but thats really spendy for what it does. There is no need for a high end hose in this application. Industrial supply houses carry large diameter fuel line for only a few bucks a foot.

      There should be no problem with biodiesel, but I'll check the specs. to be certain and I'll let you know. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Funny, that's exactly what you're doing.
      If you don't like it, don't buy it.
      I'm not forcing it on anyone, and coincidentally, the pricing for this is exactly the same as buying the OEM rubber hoses from the dealer or anywhere else which will eventually dry-rot and wear out all over again.
      The half-life of silicone is overkill, yes, but I'm sure there are those people who would rather spend an extra few dollars to be sure there are no failures/leaks ever again.

      And I'm not. I'm simply informing the folks that are not millionares such as myself that a alternative is avaliable.
      I wish you all the best of luck with your sales.

      If I hapen to come accross any kind of listing specifying what years or applications use which hose, I'll be sure to make a post about it.
      Until then, it shouldn't take more than 30 seconds for anyone to peak under the car to see which one is needed. Unless of course, for those of you whose cars are so low, you can barely slide a credit card under the body!

      I just ventured into the deepest part of my garage/shed and found 2 filler necks for the shorty hoses.
      I think they are off '80 and earlier Rabbits.
      Any info on biodiesel compatability yet?

      I have confirmed that the hoses will, indeed, be compatible with all diesel fuels and vegetable oils.
      - Diesel
      - Bio-Diesel
      - SVO (from rape, corn, linseed, sunflower, peanut, etc.)

      Yes, having one handy on a daily basis may mean a few more things might be offered eventually!
