Remove fuel line and replace with a new one long enough to reach outside the tank, then hook up the filter and pull back thru and cut off excess

While that answer is correct, please allow me to expand on it. You need to push the replacement fuel line into the tiny hole that it came out of. You keep feeding more line until it comes out the filler spout. Then you can attach the fuel filter and pull the replacement line back out until it is the correct length. At that point, you cut it off.

This means that you need about a foot of replacement line, even though you are actually replacing a section that is only about four inches.

It seems to be a fairly common problem that this line breaks.

How do i change a fuel filter on a Nissan x-trail

Most fuel filters are designed for long life,I.e., fine plastic mesh not paper. They're usually located in the gas tank attached to the fuel pump. It means removing the fuel tank as most cars don't have access holes. I would try some Dri-gas for a tank or two then a major brand of mid-range octane gas at the 'red,white & blue' gas brands as they'll add cleaners to their gas.

How do I replace fuel lines on poulan lines on gas string trimmer?

You will need to purchase some new gas line of the same size as on the trimmer now and cut it to length as needed. The line will go into the gas tank and will have a fuel filter attached to the end of it.
You will need to fish the line out of the tank and put the line on the fuel filter. To thread the new line through the tank or housing it helps to cut the new line on a 45 degree angle so you can grip the line and pull it though. U tube has videos on how to do this so you can have a better idea of what you need to do. It is a little tricky sometimes. Hope this helps.

Replace fuel line in husqvarna 141 chain saw

The fuel line on the 141 is very small and wasn't really meant to be replaced for some reason, as it is a pinch fit. Buy the smallest fuel line you can, usually 1/8th OD inch fuel line. Remove the air-filter and the carburetor. You will need to drill out the
current hole a little bit, so go slowly. As soon as the new fuel line will fit _tightly_ insert the line. You will have to remove the hand-bar and the
anti-vibration bolts to separate the motor mount portion from the gas tank which is part of the hand grip.

Apply some gasoline proof gasket sealant to the space between the gap, else you will have a gas leak from the tank sooner or later.

Reassemble the grip and motor sections back together and let the sealant dry for a day or so. Put the carb and air filter back on and attach the fuel line to the carb and the other end to the fuel filter in the gas tank.

Where is the gas filter


The gas filter is inside the gas tank. If you're wanting to change the filter, first remove all gas from the tank.
Next, remove cover and probably the air filter so you can see the fuel lines.
Use a needle nose pliers to grab the filter through the tank opening.
Some chain saws have 2 lines coming from the tank. Give a little tug on the gas filter to see which line it is attached to inside.
You will have to remove the line at the other end where it attaches to the pump or crankcase.
Pull the filter and line up and out of the tank. Put on a new filter and pull the line back to the nipple it was attached to.
Push down on the filter to seat it in the opening.

Depending on the make and model of your chainsaw, some have washers under the filter that seat against the inside of the fuel tank. Be sure to press this kind to seat it.

Hope this helps. If it does. I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Oil change procedure for 1995 magna 750

you have to remove the gas tank to access the fuel filter. First, remove the seat and then remove the attachment bolt at the back of the tank. Then remove both attachment bolts at the front of the tank. You can now raise the tank enough to disconnect the fuel line from the shutoff valve on the tank (Make sure you shut off the fuel first). Now, you should be able to remove the tank. The filter box is situated between the two upper frame tubes. Two Phillips-head screws secure the cover. Remove these screws and remove the cover. You can now lift out the filter.Reverse procedure to install
