Re: Fuel filter questions
Gasoline hose has an internal liner and an external layer. They are usually not the same material. If it's not submersion rated it will fail. It'll probably work for awhile, but..... IT WILL FAIL. With that said, the leak the OP had was likely from where the hose connected to the QD. My RT did the same thing when I replaced the QDs. It was leaking where the clamp went around the hose, but as the pressure built, the barb would slide towards the clamped surace and seal it. So you probably just need to tighten your hose clamp a little bit. And while I'm at it, the NAPA filter may be pressure rated for a throttle body FI system which is about 15 PSI. I can believe that. The LT runs at 51 PSI. I'm with Ron and Dave on this one.
