I'm surprised every time (and read once for every esprit owner) that these cars were never recalled. I understand it takes quite a few years to degrade but the initial design (material choice) is flawed and should have been fixed by Lotus.


Something I learned about cars or planes, it all works until it doesn't anymore...sometime there is no way around it!

In those days Lotus had a company policy of designing and building to get past warranty period only. Polythene pipe degradation by fuel over many years would have been completely outside their thought processes.

When I changed my fuel lines to modern Goodridge fuel grade hose I noticed the gumph says it should be changed every 2 years! Thats how corrosive petrol is even today making fuel lines to stand up is no easy thing. I dont plan to change fuel lines every two year I think it maybe just a warning to cover their backs but I do check them for leaks.
