    Default Fuel line 2CV

    The fuel line was blocked from the fuel tank.
    Had it "repaired" and at a cost of $800.00 Which included installing a new fuel gauge. The fuel gauge is not working (needs an auto electrician I was told).

    And guess what: The fuel line is blocked again, What to do.

    The fuel line is being blocked most likely by rubbish from the tank
    I would remove the tank and clean it
    At the same time you can check the fuel gauge and replace the rubber elbow at tank outlet and check fuel line condition carefully

    Bloomin' heck, just did the currency conversion and have to wonder what labour rates must be in Australia?
    Not too different from what Porsche main dealers charge in the UK, it seems...

    Anyhow, do you have a steel petrol tank on your car?
    If so, it would be a good idea to swap it for one of the later plastic type.

    Also, there should be a gauze filter on the pickup tube, so that only very small items of debris can enter the fuel line.

    Finally, hope you've got one of these nylon pipes running from the tank to the front end. I've known folk to fit rubber hose all the way, which is just asking for trouble when petrol laced with ethanol is being used.

    The lines were replaced with proper fuel lines. The fuel tank is plastic. Where can I find the gauze filter on the pick up tube?

    The filter is part of the sender unit and is a push fit on the end of the dip tube...

    That seems like a lot of money!
