RE: [DML] Coil in Fuel Line to Prevent Collapse?



Or consider the reworked baffle and pick up assembly that Hervey sells.
Mine has been in for 2 years with no big problem.  If I take a very hard
accelerating turn with 1/4 a gallon of fuel left in the tank it will
slosh over and starve for just a moment, but it's a handy reminder that
you only have 5 miles of fuel left, so I consider that a "feature".
Very happy with it though and it solves the collapsing fuel line problem
forever.

Subject: [DML] Coil in Fuel Line to Prevent Collapse?

 

This past weekend I was on a road rallye. After about an hour of 
driving, my car acted like it was having problem getting gas - it 
started missing. I suddenly remembered this had happened years ago 
after a parade. I think the problem is the gas tank getting hot and the 
pickup line collapsing because of the heat. I had half a tank of gas 
but I stopped and filled up anyway. The problem went away. I remember 
somebody coming up with an idea of inserting a coil inside the fuel 
line to keep it from collapsing. Can someone post the information on 
that again - the type and length of coil and installation instructions? 
I suppose the heat shield would work too but I'd like to try the coil.
