cleaning fuel tank
« on: April 13, 2006, 06:14:40 PM »

Prior to removal and tank cleaning I will be draining fuel at the fuel pump outlet tomorrow.  Can anyone tell me the ID of the fuel lines so that I can pick up a three foot section on the way to the boat yard.

Many thanks.

Mine was 3/8", the return was smaller.

Gary : The fuel line from the tank to the engine is a 3/8".  The return line is 5/16" and the line from the last "banjo" to the fuel return is 1/4".  Ron

Thanks Ron.  All went well using a 3" section of 3/8's fuel line from the fuel pump to portable tanks.  Tomorrow my son and I will disconnect and remove the tank and bring it home for cleaning.  Reinstall is scheduled for Sunday.
