How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

When a Fuel Line Breaks. To put it blankly, if a hose breaks or wears out, fuel will leak. A fuel line that leaks will also result in a decrease in fuel pressure, which in turn compromises the hole fuel system. A faulty fuel system can cause engine issues such as misfires and delays.
If the line is old, cracked or broken, it needs immediate maintenance. Otherwise, your car could leak gasoline or have problems delivering it to the engine. If you find your fuel leaking on the pavement, or you can smell gasoline constantly, this could be a fuel hose problem.
The EPA defines useful life as 10 years for boat fuel system components and five years for PWC fuel systems.
Dirt, sediment, and carbon buildup are all common things that can clog these fuel system parts. Dirt and sediment can also clog your fuel lines and prevent gas flow into the engine.
According to eHow, fuel lines can develop leaks over time because they are prone to rub against metal under your vehicle. Mechanics stress that fuel lines need to be replaced in full and that damaged sections of the line cannot solely be repaired.
It`s never safe to drive a car with a fuel leak. Fuel leaks are one of the top causes of vehicle fires. Gas is highly flammable, so it is highly likely that the gas could start a fire, either in the vehicle itself or from the fuel left behind from a leaking vehicle.

With a fuel leak, a car is never safe to drive.

Since gas is extremely combustible, it is possible that it may spark a fire, either inside the car or elsewhere, if it leaks. Therefore, fixing the leak as soon as possible is highly recommended.

On average, repairs to gas lines cost from $85 to $175 per hour. For a two-hour call plus a service fee, expect to pay from $200 to $420 to repair a gas line, for an average of about $310.

Need to replace fuel lines on my Troy Bilt gas hedge trimmer. Where can I get replacement fuel lines… or better yet… what size are the lines and where can I buy a few feet of the lines. Note: I have reviewed the parts assembly and it would seem to indicate I have to replace the entire handle assembly (Part #1) instead of just buying replacement hose(s). Any help to resolve my issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
ANSWER : Replacement fuel lines should be readily available at your local lawnmower repair shop. Your TroyBilt hedger uses fuel line that is 3/32″ (2.4mm) interior dimension, 3/16″ (4.8mm) outside dimension, with a 3/64″ (1.2mm) wall dimension.
Most manufacturers don’t offer replacement line, only fuel tank assemblies. Find your local shop, and try to get the TYGON brand…it is yellow. Tygon lasts the longest. You should be able to buy it by the foot for less than $2 per foot. You will need 2 feet of hose to replace both lines.

Make sure to clean the in-tank filter when replacing hoses.

Good luck.

ANSWER : Hi owjbhend…
Use a piece of wire and insert it into the fuel line, then bend a hook in the end and hook it over the end of the fuel line…lubricate the fuel line with some vaseoline very lightly…about the first one inch of the fuel line and then use your fingers to start the fuel line into the tank, once you have the fuel line in the tank give enough to hook the fuel filter to and so it can be dropped back into the tank.
Below is a drawing of how to route the fuel lines.

The fuel lines have rotted out of the edger gas tank. How do I fix or do I need to replace entire tank with new fuel lines?Since there are no male fuel line connections exiting the fuel tank and just two holes where the lines were, I guess I need to replace the entire tank and get a new one with lines already attached. Thanks.
ANSWER : No you can buy replacement fuel line but you must reconnect the filter in the tank that line goes to the bottom of the carby then out the top of the carby to the inlet on the primer then out of the primer and back to the tank.

Need to replace fuel line that goes into gas tank
ANSWER : You have to pull the fuel line through the hole in the tank because the hole is a little smaller than the fuel line, otherwise it would leak. Use a thin piece of wire, I use a tag wire,cut the fuel line at an angle on the end, stick a hole in it then stick the wire through hole in the tank and out the cap hole. Stick the wire through the line and twist it around itself and pull the line through.
