where are all the rubber fuel hoses on an s3?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I cant find a digram that matches the fuel system layout of my early S3, seems a bit different to whats in the manual.   just wanted to check where i need to look to make sure ive replaced all the soft fuel lines, so far ive just done from the flowlock, via a small filter (replaced the plastic one with an alloy one, i had a plastic one in my eclat and after a year the seal had cracked and it was pouring fuel). before the flowlock valve it is hard steel line, which disappeasrs off behind the engine.. what soft lines are between this and the tanks?

cheers,

Mark

Between the 2 carburettors, from fuel filter to carb, fuel pump to fuel filter, banjos on both tanks to t-piece and from t-piece to fuel pump AFAIK.

Also I replaced the inlet and outlet of the fuel pump with 8mm push on pipe unions
