Re: [T3] Gas Smell

<x-flowed>Cool, I'll take a look. Is the part called "vent line" or is it something else?

I'll dig open my bentley at home to see if I can find something on it, what does it look like?

Thanks again!

Ok, I as I stated before I have a '69 Squareback that I purchased about a

area. I thought it was just a one off thing that happened when I put a
little STP Engine Cleaner in her but it still does it if its just plain jane

Any ideas where to start investigating?

Check the vent line under the right front fender. It is probably bad.
Most are after all this time. They are available, but I cannot testify
to the quality of the replacements. If you don't repair it, your car
will give you problems in short time, as the front tire throws water
right into the gas tank.

I think Jim Adney may have some replacements.
I made my own, from fittings from the hardware store.
