Re: NAPA Gold 3032 Fuel Filter Kit
I'm curious why you would say this:
I wouldn't use the fuel line and clamps shown in your pictures, as they look like they're designed to be inside the engine compartment for a carburetor equipped car.
I spoke with my local NAPA store manager, someone whom I trust, and he said that the short hoses are indeed intended for in-tank use.
As for the idea of only using Oetiker clamps, well, I guess I have been lucky. I've used screw-type clamps in 4 fuel injected K bikes and have never had an issue. Of course, I've only put about 600,000 miles on them, so maybe my time is coming.....
And, just a side note, if you ever need to change a filter in bum f$%k Montana in the middle of the night, you'll be glad you had screw type connectors.
