Default Re: in line fuel filter leak

the kit supplied filters are junk...don't even bother using them.
just looking at them should tell you that they are very low quality.

you can not ignite gasoline with heat need a spark or a flame.
however a gas leak is not good, but i highly doubt that a fire would start just by gas hitting the hot engine or the exhaust.
its the fumes from gas that are flammable, and to ignite fumes, you need open fire or an open spark.
