    Rencently replaced part of my fuel line, short bits from tank to pump and through filter. Wanted to get around to finishing the whole line but had not had time to investigate and get around to it. Would love to fix the line up before kicking it over again for piece of mind. Glad you are posting this info. Perfect. Please post more about this pipe and let me know how it goes. I might nab one from you if doing a second order. I'd need someone to ship to SA though.
    Nice one

    My fuel hose I replaced read "Volkswagen. 1989" I was thinking I might wanna change that. Original has more than pulled it's weight there. Stupid not to really. Had the original factory pressed kinda hose clamps.
    I will mention I used screw clamps to reconnect the new line but I'm not happy about them. Gotta be something a bit safer and not so easy to tamper with.
    Any ideas?

    How about the factory type, they are readily available but need special pliars to fit them

    Am I too late for the party, when I freshened my Wife's T3 DOKA engine I found that the fuel line was dripping on the starter motor. I hate to think what could have been. Replaced with fresh rubber but any chance I could purchase a alloy pipe Nils?
