Just saw Paul Schil's remote filler - loved it. Where did you source the connecting hoses?


Thanks

I used a Hagan fuel door and mounted it a bit higher than Paul did his, but concept is the same. I used some straight fuel filler hose I got from a local auto parts store & a couple of 45* stainless bends that I picked up from a mufler shop to make the bends. I had to do a bit of minor fabrication on the one that couples to the fuel tank to get the diameters to match.

Must admit to stealing Rob's Hagan fuel fill design and location

Norbert,
I purchased the fuel from Summit Racing. It is recommended for fuel cell applications.

Fuel filler piping typically consists of aluminum or SS tubing and fuel compatible hosing -do NOT use coolant hose.
There are various suppliers on line that deal with fuel hoses in straight or angled product. Here's a shot of mine....

Thank you for all the input - I have dismantled a junk car and am using the components - pics will follow. I just finished mocking up relocating the tank. Moved it into the center since I will have a duel exhaust system.
