Nylon tubing can be used for an entire length of fuel line or just a section. This option can be a cost-effective and time-efficient repair when pre-bent lines are not available. With the correct fittings, factory-style quick disconnect fittings can be joined with metal lines or can replace a section of a metal line.
If any of the lines wear out and rupture it will cause the vehicle to leak fuel. Leaky fuel lines will produce drips, or in more serious cases, puddles of fuel on the undersides of the vehicle. Depending on which fuel injection lines are leaking, the fuel leaks will usually be at the front or rear of the vehicle.
Old cutting line can become brittle and prone to breaking. If your line is more than 5 years old and breaks often, replace it. If you find yourself replacing trimmer line frequently, try using fresh round line—square and star-shaped lines tend to wear faster.
The most frequent cause of a line breakage is through contact with something in the garden. Usually this is the result of the cutting head being taken too close to objects, e.g. garden stones, paving edges, walls etc.
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.
Gas can leak from your vehicle`s undercarriage if the gas lines are kinked or the hoses aren`t installed correctly. A fuel line leak is an easy fix for a repair shop, costing around $60 to $120.
Tools to Repair a Metal Fuel Line. You will need two inexpensive special tools for this repair – a short handheld tubing bender and a tubing cutter. The cutter has two opposing cutting wheels that position over the fuel line. Rotate and tighten the tool until it cuts through the line, making a perfect cut.

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.

How do the fuel lines in a weedeater trimmer pe550 hook up inside the gas tank
ANSWER : I have an older model that has a weighted filter in the tank. The filter flops around and can ‘fall’ into the fuel no matter which way you tilt the trimmer/tank. You should have one in your tank. Feed in the new line and make the end come out the gas cap. Push the filter/weight into the end of the fuel line. Pull the extra fuel line out of the tank to match the original position. You should have cut the new line to approximately the proper or same length as the old fuel line with an angle cut so you could push it into the tank.

How to get new plastic fuel lines in fuel tank in my weed-eater hedge trimmer. the line is larger than the hole in the tank.
ANSWER : Oftentimes it helps to use scissors to trim back a portion of the new line. Start at the bottom and cut upwards at an angle. Put some lubricant (WD40, perhaps) on the line and slide the sharp point into the fuel tank. Using needle nose pliers, grab the line and pull it through. This will only work if you have the correct size line. If the new line you are using is too large, you probably can’t pull it through.

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.

I just put new fuel line on my trimmer now i cant start it not getting fuel the line never fills with fuel but i can **** fuel out so i know it not pinched it a weedeater brand ght-17
ANSWER : Make sure the little valve under the tank if you have one is fully turned clockwise. Make sure there is nothing clogging the tiny screen inside the fuel tank. Check or test your primer bulb it may be leaky. If carb or intake is leaking, you won’t get gas either. If you have a filter on this model, try changing it.
