Default Re: Newbie Question: Please Don't Laugh

Seriously though, Do you only have a hole on the bottom of the tank? Did your kit not come with a fuel valve? The fuel hose is supposed to slip over the hose barb on the bottom of the valve. Also, throw away the horrible kit supplied fuel hose and get a quality one from a lawn mower shop or the lawn care section at a home improvement store. Just be darned sure that it is made for use with gasoline. The cheap clear vinyl tubing that they sell on rolls is NOT for use with gasoline!

Also get yourself an in line fuel filter and remove the screen from the fuel valve before threading it into the fuel tank.
