Noticed on my last trip to Home Depot, that they had replacement fuel line kits for Ryobi trimmers with instructions on how to do it.....if you don't have a Home Depot handy, take your machine to any mower shop or mower parts house and they have bulk tubing you can buy...match the size of the line and get about 14in of remove the fuel cap and dump any fuel in the tank...look inside and find the tube with the small filter attached to the end....remove the fuel line from the fitting on the carburetor and with a twisting motion push the fuel line into the tank from the outside...when you get enough slack in the line grasp the filter end of the line with long needle nosed pliers or a hemostat through the tank fill hole and gently pull on the should slide right take your new line and with a razor blade or sharp knife cut about a 1inch angled taper on the end of the new line...put a little oil on the new line and feed the tapered end from the outside of the tank through the hole in the tank, pushing and turning it a little as you insert it. as with the removal procedure when you get enough line inside the tank grasp with your pliers and pull the line through....cut off the tapered end and re install the fuel filter ( now would be a good time to replace it with a new one, they're cheap and prevent problems down the road)... pull the fuel line back toward the carburetor until the filter lies on the bottom of the tank... about 7in inside the tank and 5 in on the outside is about right take the carburetor end of the line and cut it to fit making sure you don't have any sharp bends in the line and re- attach it to the carb fitting.... that should do can replace the fuel return line the same way !!! hope this helps.... ;-D

Gas line cracked and nipple fell back into tank do I remove gas tank to replace gas line and nipple????..ryobi 725r trimmer

Empty the tank by dumping into a can or something. Shake the trimmer around until the "nipple" falls out. Get a replacement fuel line and follow their instructions. When yoou put the tube back into the tank, have something that you can guide the line through the hole with. I used a small hex wrench. If you cut the tip of the tube at a sharp taper, it will be much easier to start through the hole. You might think of replacing the return line as well. You should not have to remove the tank if you expose the carb and remove the air filter...Good luck...Lee
