Hi
Would anyone know what size the filler neck hose is? I bought a Gas Smell Kit about 2 years ago and while looking it over for the upcoming Thing east show and I noticed there is some cracks in the hose and would like to replace it again. Didn't know if it was possible to find it at a local parts store.
Thanks

Don't know the size but make sure what you find will work for gas. See you there.

hey Gblair,

I installed that kit a while back and it helped, then the smell returned.

Found out that where the large hose to the tank and the smaller 1/2 size
elbow join up at the filler neck hole, the weight of my spare tire caused a tear in the elbow hose.

didn't happen right away either, not sure if the tire was mashing on it under normal conditions or when I shut the hood if it's mashing on it.

I trimmed it and got a good re-seal, and for now, I tucked a few shop rags under the elbow hose to support it and keep it from flexing so much.

Not sure how you'd tell this is occurring without getting a ripped hose yourself but thought i'd mention.

I guess if you smell gas later, check that area. it was leaking gas under the mat, and not a lot but enough to cause a strong odor.


PS: I hope yall have fun at the show, I'm not going to be able to attend this one, maybe next year if it's closer.
