    Gerty is back from the mechanic with fuel line back in action. Thankfully no new fuel pump required, just an adjustment to the rod which had shaken loose. Cheers again everyone.

    All should have clamps.

    The originals were single use clamps. I have found ABA to be the best for 5.5 and 7mm fuel lines. Do not use worm drive as they can cause leaks on small hoses.

    Like all clamps it can be about tension. You can't make a 6mm hose 'clamp' on a 5.5 fitting with a clamp!
    Many ways to 'grip' a fuel hose. Best way is like Synchro says "make it the right size to fit". Hard press fit. Then do the clamp with right size. (no larger than what you're trying to achieve...nip up 1mm otherwise as grumble says it'll f the rubber due to too much flat surface on a round.;). It's a tension thing.;)
    Cheers

    Actually syncro is spelled with a lower case "s". The same with quattro.

    Hate to say it.....but someone has to:

    VW never used a capital "S" for the syncro model.
