Fuel tank connecting hose

Recommended Posts

I have an esprit v8 tank in my S1 Esprit that i had made to fit as S1 tanks are no longer available. One of the differences is the 25mm pipe that connects the two tanks and I believe there are different versions. Because I bought the tank from the Lotus show im unsure whivh v8 it came from so its a bit tricky trying to find out which hose i need. It is a simple push fit and jubilee clip type of connector and i believe all i need are two rubber hoses and the steel pipe that runs inside the engine bay.

Can anyone shed any light on this

I think the balance pipe was enlarged at some point in the production life of the Esprit so you may need to enlarge the holes in the chassis.

You could have an adapter pipe to reduce the bore, but that's another joint = another point to fail.
