Fuel Hose Alert

Installing a new fuel/Water separator, noticed the fuel line looked suspect. Bent it in a 90 degree and outside all cracked. Checked fuel line to tank, same. Going to replace fuel line fill, vent and engine supply. Hey guys take a look at yours.

Perfect. When I first got my boat, my fuel line was petrified. I don't think I could have broken it with a hammer. The local Autozone store had Goodyear fuel injection high pressure line for cheap. Still feels like new.

Of course SKIDIM will take care of you. Good to find it proactively vs. catastrophically.

I had a similar experience a few weeks ago. My dealer was supposed to be consulting with MC Corporate but I never heard anything from it. Since I the second owner, it's impossible for me to say that the prior owner didn't use some old fuel line when replacing a fuel pump. Decaying fuel lines are not something I would have ever imagined on a 2011 boat.
