Default Re: fuel gauge for bike

Took about 30 seconds to change out. The only thing now is the gas is clear and will be harder to see in the tube. Back then, the gas had an orange tint to it from the lead and other additives they put in it. I'll continue to search for the elbows.
Try NAPA or other automotive parts dealers. I bought some from NAPA several years ago to replace the plastic hose barb elbows on my ultralight plane
