Rick Stubblebine: Thanks for sharing this video. It got me through my fuel line repair. The dental floss trick worked like a charm!
rayjay6361: Thanks Brett, I found this Homelite that somebody ditched at the landfill , It cranked right up but leaked like a sieve and sure enough the fuel line is rotted and its black line, I found some 1/8 line that I had lying around and its too big so I went to cap it with some regular yellow line and be damned it fits, Mine is just about an inch short of what I need, So I'm going to get more today, This is the second blower I've found this fall , The first was a weedeater brand that needed a new Carb kit, but the whole OEM carb was cheaper by a buck lol, Again thanks for your help : )
rayjay6361: Now the obvious question ? Where do we get the black gas line ? and what diameter ? I can get the green/yellow/blue line but black ?
Philip Boisclair: Been looking all around on how to stop the gas leaking from my blower tried different types of fuel line nothing worked, just went out and got some of that fuel line you spoke about, gonna try it and the dental floss trick. Thanks for sharing .
andyk150500: Thanks for the tip, sir! I just fixed my primer bubble today, and then saw I lost my fuel line! Thanks to you, I should be able to get it straightened out in the next day or two. Cheers!

nrgsmrt1: Brett... God bless you for all your work put into making this video! :-) Great accent! Tim. ( Thank you YouTube ).
codycm9: Thank you so much! :D I wish I new this trick a few years ago last time my fuel line went to hell. -_-
Eric Kirklin: Pretty cool! Use the grey stuff for the fuel supply line also, and Iv found .030 wire feed welder wire with a small hook in it works wonderful. I have two homelite line trimers a leaf blower that Iv changed the fuel lines every year. Used the grey tubing with no problems 3 years and counting. NO ethinal again. Use GOOD two stroke oil!
benjamin massie: FLP ER LIKE A PANCAKE AND GIT ER DUNNNNN ON BOTH SIDES>>
titoo Bonilla: X. Cs
sneezie22: Why wouldn't you buy the ethanol fuel at the gas station instead of at Sears or Stihl ? Kind of stupid to pay more for a quart than you would for a gallon at the pump, ay. If anything , you should be looking for fuel that DOES NOT contain Ethanol !
Elkins24: I have a McCulloch silver eagle 28c weedeater and it is leaking gas around the yellow hoses. I wonder if this black hose would work? Could you give me the size as need to replace both hoses. Thanks for the video.
ortizmacias1970: What's the size of the black line. So I can buy it on eBay
moncorp1: That damn ethanol. One of the biggest scams perpetrated on the American public. Brought to you by the agro-conglormerates. Less efficient, thus losing any gains made carbon-wise (for all you man-made global warming kool-aid drinkers out there). And worst of all, absolutely destructive to engines, especially the 2 stroke types. Now our federal government is trying to make it so that we have to have 15% ethanol!!!!!
Scott McCartney: You can buy ethanol fuel by the quart (it's a little expensive) at Sears or at a Stihl retailer, you might call them first to make sure. It saves a lot of work later.
TheJohnaldChannel: Great video. Ethanol reeks havoc on those plastic/rubber parts. I understand some states (Vermont) are only selling non ethanol gas, not happening in Michigan where I live, we grow a lot of corn.
