Re: [DML] Re: Fuel Line Problem

Question: Isn't that dangerous boiling oil? If the oil get's too hot, does it not become flammable? How do you know how hot to get the oil, i.e. how do you boil the oil?

best!) and my trusty $9 Harbor Freight heat gun to get the hose 
softened enough to press on the barbs. If done correctly, no clamps 
are necessary (also like the original). 

Boiling oil is a PITA and at this point I use the heat gun. Boiling 
water or a hair dryer is not hot enough.
