Gas Tank Filler Neck options?

I'm wondering what or where everyone has gotten their materials. I'm using a boat's screw on cap and the stock gas tank from a 92 Nissan Pickup. I've heard of using flexible exhaust pipe from a magazine but where can I get very flexible gas hosing around 1.75"? All the stuff I find is rather stiff and won't bend tot he shape I need even with boiling in water and bending. Thanks for any old rodder suggestions.

Could you make a template from a piece of welding rod or coat hanger and take that to a muffler shop and have them make up a filler neck for you. I think that is what you are asking for...right?

A muffler shop would be pretty cheap for this as they would probably use a scrap piece of tubing.

Then I'd have to but some rubber coupling/hosing to attach each end I believe.

I weld mine up from exhaust tubing then use short (~2") pieces of oil rated, industrial hose and hose clamps to join them. Radiator hose won't last long in contact w/ gasoline. You can get short pieces of the proper hose at an industrial rubber supply store (check your yellow pages). Also I recently bought some at my Car Quest auto parts store. They sell it buy the inch, pretty pricey (several $/ inch), but worth the money to do it right.

Rad hose will get eaten by the gas... I got mine at a specific hose shop called greenline hose here in Calgary, Canada. You really should use the correct gas rated hose, as it wont deteriorate like rubber will

Just my 2 cents, Im in the same boat, but if you want it to last, you do it once, the right way

Gas Tank Filler Neck Options

NAPA has hose that they call a blue line hose, or green line hose, (I forget exactly which) that is compatible with gas. It is straight, no bend options, and very expensive.

Or, you can get gas filler neck hose that has bends in it, an assortment of bends to choose from, at JC Whitney, click this link and scroll about half way down the page to view http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/S...LLER+NECK+HOSE

fuel filler neck hose options

The place i got my fuel filler neck and hose was Filler Neck Supply Co.
this place has hard wall and soft wall fuel filler neck hose. I got the hard wall cause it is steel reinforced and does not crimp when it bends; however it is hard to get over any flaired ends of the tank and filler neck. I have used the soft wall stuff too; it bends fairly well also.
hope this helps
the web site is
www.fillernecksupply.com

Me, I'd be shopping the junkyards. 1980 to 1996 Ford pickups, and the rear tank hose in particular. Factory made to be fuel resistant with some built-in curves already. Worth looking I think.
If you prefer a brand new hose just keep track of exactly which junkyard donor had the hose you found to fit (or that you trimmed to fit) and then order the much more expensive brand new replacement.
