Fuel Tank Vent Hose

Anyone know where I can get a new fuel tank vent hose? I'm referring to the smaller hose that connects from the tank to the fuel filler neck. Mine is pinched and isn't allowing enough air to pass through it while filling the tank. Is this a molded hose or can I just buy a length of hose and bend it to fit without it pinching again?

Can you show a pic of your current situation? The current hose is probably too long IMO. Should be able to replace.

Sorry, I don't have any pics available right now. I agree, I think the current hose is too long. I thought about just shortening the existing hose, but it has some small cracking around the area where it is pinched right now so I would prefer to replace it. I'm just unsure whether or not this is a special molded hose or if it is just regular hose that can be bought by the foot.

If the hose is only clamped then should not be a problem but if finished to clamp on then could be something you need to order.
