    fuel line from muffler keeps popping off

    The fuel line that goes from the muffler to the fuel tank keeps popping off on occasion either from vibration or from me hitting it while starting

    Is there any way to keep this hose from coming off?

    Cut the tip off for a fresh bit of tubing to go on the tip. If it still does it, a small zip tie or thin wire wrapped around it will help.

    Just put new lines. its short and cheap and should fix the issue. Clean the little inlets too in case they are soaked in oil or something.

    Also, post in the nitro 4-tec area for better responses! Lol.

    Is it the stock line or did you purchase new line and install? If the latter then you may have gotten line with too big of I.D. It should fit on snug.

    It is the stock fuel line. That car was almost new when I purchased it this week so I did not replace the fuel line.

    I will try the zip tie and see what happens

    Thanks
