Anybody know what hose will work from the filler neck to the gas tank on a 74 Cadillac Superior?
It's a long formed hose that goes from the driver's side rear to the middle back of the gas tank. It almost looks like a radiator hose of some kind. I need some kind of application because no one at the parts store knows what I am talking about. :wallbash:

Can you bring in the old one and have them match it up for you?

More on the pesky fuel filler neck hose nightmare....

Thanks to Richard for the rides to the gas station, the duct tape he loaned me and pushing me to a level surface to start my coach Sat morning, I made it through the parade. Seemed that stupid hose dumped my fuel on the 91 fwy coming in :veryangry: I ran out of gas after parking in the wrong spot "as directed by a volunteer" for the parade. The tape lasted long enough to get me thru the parade and to Evergreen where the rest of the fuel leaked out but my gauge says full :wallbash: Chris had a couple gallons and with help were able to push it to a level surface again to get the air out of the lines and she started. Put 4 more gallons in and just barley made it home :thumbsup: Thanks Again!!!! I really appreciated it.
I guess Jesus blessing the casket was a good sign after all :thumbup:

You may have to splice it with another hose and join them with a pipe.

Thanks, that seemed to have worked. The return line cracked after moving things around and is leaking. I think that one is an AutoZone special...

We had a similar problem with our 96, They jacked up the car in the rear to make the gas go forward. removed the bad hose , then made two hoses with a connector in the middle to replace the one bad one. Sometimes we have to think like McGyver to get things done.
