Any one sell fuel hose kits for a fresh tank install?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

looking to put my gas tank back in and was looking for a vendor who sells the complete hose kits, including clamps. I would rather buy it at one place instead of buying searching multiple vendors.

Thanks!

Many of the vent hoses are NLA, therefore, you are stuck looking for multiple vendors.

What year Z are you looking to fix up? You should put the year of your car in your posts or signature to get more specific replies to your inquiries.

Especially considering his profile says he doesn't own a Z yet. So what vehicle are we replacing the tank in? If you own a Z the link above is good.

Okay I looked a little deeper and I see you do own a Z. Again the link above has good info. Like Steve mentioned, put some more info in your "signature"....makes it easier to help you.

Just redid my tank/hoses and can vouch for the info in the "Rating" link in post#3. I bought a little extra for each different size to make sure I could provide enough length to complete the bends needed.

I bought all the fuel hose and clamps from O'reilly's for around $60. I had the PEX brass fittings but you could get them at any hardware or plumbing supply shop.

You'll also need the plastic rivets for your rear interior panels if you want new ones, Nissan #90909-E4100.

Take your time, it's a big job if you do it right.

"Take your time, it's a big job if you do it right."

Your patience will be rewarded. Like no more heavy gas smell from a full tank and a left turn.

NAPA had the larger hoses that I used for the Vapor Tank - Those worked out perfectly! Just take the OEM hoses to NAPA or Oreilly's for a matchup.

My hoses are in pretty good shape all in all, but if I fill up the tank and store the car (in a tight garage), it smells of gas for a week or two while things "settle." (I'm not sure why, but it stops after a while.) Anyway, I was actually thinking of removing the expansion tank altogether and just weld up the gas tank so it only has an "in" and an "out." Anyone else done this?

Wow, that's a very complete post. I love th idea of making things simpler and maybe it would help with the fumes. I'll have to look it over a couple more times though and make sure I understand which hoses I'll need to leave on as well as make sure I have a vented gas cap.

This is not a good idea, you'll be inviting more problems than you will be solving...

Oh come on. EVERYBODY knows that the Nissan engineers added a lot of extra parts in the car for no reason...LOL
