Fuel jug/hose question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just bought a VP 5-gallon fuel jug and the 18" hose. My question is, do you put anything (teflon tape, dope, etc) on the threads of the plastic fitting before screwing it into the cap? Seems like it would leak if you didn't but I wasn't sure.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Hey HrcRacing,

I don't recall if there was any on there or not :cry: I can check for you and get back to ya, but I wouldn't think that putting teflon on it would hurt anything.

Mine has the tapered fitting too. I'll just tighten it up without anything added then.

Thanks to both of you for your input. :cry:

I have always put a couple of zip ties on the hose/cap connection.If you grab the hose and lift,they will pop off!
