    Hi all, I need to replace the inlet hose for my '72, the hose measures as 57mm diameter. Has anyone found replacement fuel hose somewhere? The one quote I have been able to get is way too expensive (in my opinion), so I'm looking for other sources.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Wayne, unfortunately its not the one I need, I will guess that ute filler hoses are different to the bus hoses. Mine is a straight hose without a bend. The one above says it is 55mm, mine is 57mm. It does look closer to the prices I have been quoted though. Will keep looking, thanks!

    My 74 has a bent steel pipe from the rubber fuel filler neck which is attached to the tank via a straight piece of braided hose (item 6 in this drawing: http://www.ratwell.com/technical/FuelHoses/09-FuelBreatherHoses.jpg)

    Mine looks like this photo I found on the samba: http://s12.photobucket.com/user/kprins/media/fuelfill.jpg.html

    Here is a straight one at Bus Depot In the US but it is shorter and doesn't look right: http://www.busdepot.com/211201125d.

    Based on my experience trying to find some generic hoses for my T3 locally to match various hoses on the engine, you will struggle to find anything to fit so I would just do a Google search on the part number without the d on the end and try and find the best price for one that looks the same.

    If you are after a ute filler hose then I recall them being different ie. straighter :rolleyes: the one pictured on VW Heritage with the bend in it is I believe suited to a 72/73 kombi/bus and not a ute nor years earlier or later ...... this is from my findings years back when looking.

    I had trouble years ago with Igor's fuel filler hose (thread in bay tech clinic fuel system) - VW Heritage @ that time were about $160 (about 1/2 price now) for one they made themselves then there was German Supply in Canada you were slightly cheaper but they used SS pipr to get the bend and then fuel delivery hose on either end to connect to filler and tank - similar to Mellow's link http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=288112

    Best bet is get the year of your Ute and google fuel filler hose or fuel delivery hose ..... have to think what the amercians would call a ute of that era and if snag it & a part number then you go from there :confused:

    A DC pic showing fuel filler further forward in the body work (SC would be the same) so the fuel delivery hose would be straighter in my view ..... found a pdf picture of fuel filler & parts list but NLA & no part number supplied :oops:

    This is I feel is what you are after 55mm inner dia = 57mm outer dia https://www.germansupply.com/home/customer/product.php?productid=18396&cat=300&page=6 OR https://www.germansupply.com/home/customer/product.php?productid=16590&cat=300&page=6 may be a better option

    This is the delivery hose (mentioned above) I bought https://www.germansupply.com/home/customer/product.php?productid=16725&cat=300&page=6

    Know of some who have done resto's and/or fuel delivery repairs and took the route of closest they could get in Oz and clamps done as tight as possible to fit over metal ends of tank and filler neck.

    If you can get a picture of (and post) what you're after then all the better to get help, length also :rolleyes:

    As another option have you tried your local wrecking yards,they may be able to match the size from a multitude of other vehicles,even if it means that you have to go through a big box with a set of verniers.

    How much is your time worth, sometimes i find it easier to buy the part fit it and forget it, how much is it in the grand sceme of the vehicle value?

    Being a DC production volume of parts would be low, thus setup cost somewhat higher.

    Cheaper than a fuel leak and potential vehicle fire....
