After you remove the filler cap there is still a connector pipe, the
pipe the cap screws into. This Pipe is flush with the rear deck, is
about two inches long, and the distance between the connector pipe
and the fuel tank inlet is around one inch...leaving virtually no
room for removal of the old rubber hose much less room to bend,
squeeze and install an new,stiff one...even with lots of silicone,
KY-Jelly or whatever.
