I hate when that happens

Post by Max Welton » Tue Jun 24, 2014 6:59 pm

The pressure-side fuel line (between the pump and the hard-line) let go on the way home today. I had to call for the AAA truck. And the neighborhood shop did not have any 1/4" FI hose.

So it's a Subaru for me tomorrow and hopefully get 6 feet of fuel hose on the way home.

Friggin one year old FI fuel line. :?

OK, I'm done now.

OReillys, NAPA et al carry Gates multifuel.

Modern fuels eat the "wonderful quality Original German" 7mm woven EFI hose as a snack.

I found that out many moons ago when I went to convert to EFI from CIS and the hose started oozing fuel everywhere.
(it also was ~ 1 year old "OG" 7mm hose.)
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

This was ordinary, modern 1/4" FI hose.

Modern hose for modern fuel. :x

OK NOW I'm done.

No reason to, really. I just have a whole Subaru to drive when something like this happens.
