Yes, one goes to your primer bulb and the other is attached to the fuel filter in the tank. If the hose broke off, I suggest you go to your local small engine repair shop where you can purchase replacement hose. It will appear that the hose they give you is too big to go in the holes, so to solve that, you can cut one end at a 45 degree angle. Push and twist, push and twist will be the way to go. Now is a good time to replace your fuel filter as well. It might be rolling around in your tank now if that's the hose that broke.

The hose that has the nozzle in it...does that go to your primer bulb or to your carb?

Is difficult to fill gas tank

Gas pump nozzles have a device in the end that when gasoline runs back up into it, it turns off the fuel flow." There's a tiny hole near the bottom of the gas pump nozzle connected to a small tube.
Normally, air flows through that tube while you're filling and the gas keeps flowing as long as you hold down on the trigger. When that hole gets covered by gasoline (when your tank is full), a vacuum forms inside the nozzle and an automatic shutoff switch gets tripped, turning off the flow of gas with a thunk. Next time your fueling up try to reposition the nozzle.

The sprayer nozzle is stopped up, i have tried cleaning it out and it still won't spray.

Round up 1.33 Gal Spray can have a bad pump or a clogged filter or both.
Test pump: pump the handle, does it get harder to pump after 10-15 pumps, when you open the cap does air rush out? If yes, pump is good, if not, wear rubber gloves, remove pump/cap assembly, remove inner tube from cap, the handle\ pump plunger will remair with the cap. if the o ring is dry, wipe it clean, put a little petroleum jelly on the plunger o ring To Lubricate it and prevent o ring wear and helps it seal air tight so the pump will work correctly. reassemble handle\cap make sure the Black inner black plastic hose aligns with the white spray hose .
If your pump passed the pump test, lool inside tank at the chemical fluid clean or does the fluid look like it has lumpy white clumps in the fluid, if so, empty fluid in tank into a clean throw away container look at rinse the tank out with water, strain the clumps out with a paper towl draped over the tank opening inserted about 2 inches into tank opening then when you slowly pour the fluid back in hold both end of the paper towel so it does;nt fall in tank the clumps will remain on top of the paper towel , Then your ready to clean the filter in the cap. Remove the black plactic tube from the pump, remove the white out side hose(squeeze the black connector to unlock the white hose , Then look in the hole the the black tube was inserted into, look for clumps (looks like lint from a clothes dryer, about the size of cotton ball, ) in that hole, to clean the clogged filter,I used low pressure air from an air tank, Blown into the hole where the white discharge hose was mounted. The clog should fall out of the opposite hole where the black tubs mounts. Reassemble and test, Also, the white spray tip turns out to change from spray to stream. Wash Hands good the chemicals can soak into your skin, some people are very allergic to the fluid

Can't pump gas in my tank went to 3 drifferernt gas stations due to senors that wasn't it.. hose down no blocking found... some one said air can't exit try to get that out but no money to pay...

Sometimes that little metal flap that was covering the hole where you put the gas can break and fall in. causes a blockage. Another thing, i used to have a Buick Regal that i had to hold the gas nozzle hard to one side and pump really slowly to get gas in. If all else fails, get a 5 gallon plastic gas can, fill that up, then poor it down your car gas tank. Alot of work, but its cheap.

Gas line in gas tank broke need to replace

The fuel hose is a very small diameter, and a tight fit in the tank, all you can do is pull the old pipe out with some long nose pliers, then cut the end of the new hose at an angle, so as it fits into the hole in the top of the tank enought so as you can pull it on through useing long nose pliers through the filler hole.

My grill is hissing and the nozzle is screwed on tight. Is their a washer piece that is supposed to be included with this set?

If you are smelling gas, do not try lighting anything until you figure out what is leaking. Spray soapy water on everything to pinpoint the hiss sound. The tank valve should have a rubber gasket inside it that seals against your black plastic female hose end fitting when you hook it up. It will not seal if it is missing. If that is the problem, take the tank back where you filled it or exchanged it. Douglas

On weedeater blower and vac gas line is broke from carb into tank does it just connect to fuel filter in tank model 1925

Yes if your asking about the fuel line yes it hooks to the filter out thru the wall of the gas tank straight into the carb. if it broke out side the tank you can try a smaller plastic hose to stick inside to reconnect the two parts. if it broke inside the tank try to replace as one hose.
