Question about Ryobi 15" Electric Factory Reconditioned Trimmer (ZRRY41002) - Factory Reconditioned
I have replaced the filter gas line and i am having a hard time replacing the return gas line. What can i do? I currently have stuck the gas line back through the line and the gas is leaking from the line that needs to be replaced.
SOURCE: Gas leaks
figure out where it's leaking from.. and fix it :/ or provide a little more detail on the issue

It is not too hard. Just make sure to cut the new fuel filter line long enough so that you can get ahold of it inside the fuel tank to install the filter. The fuel return line only has to go into the tank 1/2" or more to do it's job, so lenth is not a problem unless you wish to install one of the little nylon connectors on it's end so it doesn't pull OUT of the tank. That is optional.
The small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects directly to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then "pushes" any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. This is the return line. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb. If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where sometimes the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. Otherwise, the line should enter the tank for about 1/2" or so
