Real gas v ethanol 13 Jun 2018 13:15 #85766

I only run non ethanol but this hose might be the cause of my problem. Cheap hose should be replaced often.

I don't run any gas with ethanol in it except in my pickup truck. Boats ,tractors, chainsaws lawnmowers, boat motors etc. I avoid ethanol like it is poison

Yep, last 2 fuel bulbs I bought the first thing I did was cut it off and replace it.

John. It's the grey fuel line that is on new fuel line/primer bulb sets. I had this happen a few years ago as well. Do not use that Grey fuel line!
