    Tank vent hose

    I replaced my expensive rubber hoses that turned to dust in the tank with Tygon 4040 fuel line. Been over a year now with no issues.

    You can buy it on ebay, cheap.

    A little confused

    Are you looking through the gas filler hole to inspect the vent hoses? Have you removed the tank and are examining the vent hoses?
    I live in Tucson and the heat is serious. Fill on side stand, let pump hit stop, don't try to cram more in. Problem solved. (o, and **** canned the evap canister)

    I was just inside of mine and found a good tip- secure the vent hoses with a tie wrap. A little better than just being held with friction.

    Ah! Thanks I wish I knew! I bought the expensive hose already but for the future.

    Update

    So today I opened the tank and swapped out the vent hoses, I reused the factory clamps which wasn't that big a hassle actually. I went and filled the tank with gas and rode home. and so far...no gas coming from the vent hoses. Hopefully that is problem solved. I bought the hose from the UK BMW. With shipping it was $12 less than EME, how can they do that?

    Give it another year it will harden.
    It is not rated for continual submersion.
    I learned this from firsthand experience.
