    I know I’ve said this before and I’m going to see it again Guys because it applies to all of us! CHECK YOUR FUEL LINES!!!!!!!!!!!The carbs on my single cab always leak a little gas so I expect a little fuel smell but last week it was stronger than usual so finally I lifted my deck lid and noticed that one of my fuel lines need to be replaced BADLY!!! 😥 😥 had to buy $4.50 a foot fuel injected line at Orielly cuz that’s all they had but WAY cheaper than a new Rig!!!!

    Damn I miss this place. ?

      I would be lying through my teeth if I said I didn’t miss your help… 😉  😉   It was pretty sweet having a guy who showed up about 2 hours before me and started the day and was prepping and sanding when I walked in the door…   Thanks for your years of service to the Volkswagen Trade!  I imagine Nascar as been even more fun and eventfull than KCW…

    I keep a bunch of fuel line in my bus.. extra filter, some clamps, both sizes of line etc…  Yeah.. I’ve had it happen also… Thats how a lot of people end up with Hose clamps on their german line.. which it is not supposed to use.. I don’t use em.. unless I HAVE to..

     

    I agree.. Check those fuel ines. OPEN your decklid at every gas stop… and you will usually catch it.. and Like Rusty said… pay attention to the smells and feels of your vw.. and you’ll be fine. 😉

    I’m pretty sure its caused by the ethanol fuel blend that every gas station sells. I’ve noticed more problems with floats and fuel hose the last few years.

    All you aircooled VW guys need to look for a gas station that sells ethanol-free gas.

    Yup ethanol sucks donkey dong! You can get hose that is apparently resistant to the shit….the cloth braided “German” stuff doesn’t seem to last. Like u say cheap insurance, just change it every spring….can’t imagine standing on side of road watching one of my cars roast!

    Also something nobody seems to talk about in Aircooled world is how much ethanol affects your tune, percentages are all over the map and when you jet/tune for one tank of gas and hit the next greedy wallet sucking station get a whole different cocktail of garbage. Almost always end up lean!

    In my neck of the woods the higher the octane the less the ethanol….only fuel I’ll run in my 55 is chevron 94 they claims no ethanol…..love the way that shit smells ? It’s only $6.50-$7 a gallon ?

    Yep , ethanol sucks. I just paid 2.90 a gallon for ethanol free for my jetta and my 65. Fuel jumped 50 cents a gallon because…. HURRICANE!

    Hey Pete and Scott and all you other lowland costal SC, GA, and FL guys. What’s your plans? You going to evacuate or try to ride it out. I got family from Myrtle beach probably coming inland to stay with us in the upstate. You all stay safe and we will be praying for you all.

    Be safe and have a productive day folks!

    Watching the track; plan is to stay for now.  My mother has not been in great health so we’re getting her to Atlanta to stay w/ family so there’s no interruption in her dialysis.

    I feel for the FL folks.  Hang in there.

    Yep, looks a little better for SC today ,but FL looks like it is going to get hammerd.

    Here is something interesting for you folks. The scrap markets were looking to go up this month but now with Harvey killing 200,000 cars or more and buildings and infastructure we look to stay sideways. So much Scrap material it is affecting our markets. Now we have Irma , and Jose ……. I just hope them two die out a lot before land fall.

    I got my garage packed tight. took videos and pictures of everything. I’m only headed inland about 15-20 miles, but at least I’m off the island. Looks like a cat 1 by the time it gets to me after fucking up all the miami boy’s donks.

    A blast from the past. My old ’66 with the “chick” built 1776 engine. Hell of a road tripper.
