    Anything applied that does not have the strength to "push back" against 3600psi will easily be dislodged. That's why I suggested a sealant, covered with a

      The hose appears fine - it looks like the hole is in the rubber piece where the hose connects to the quick release mechanism - literally a hole in the rubber.

        That's it! Now I know those guys at Fuelmaker are eating too much yellow snow up there in Canada. $2000 for a hose, oh yeah, don't forget the shipping. The

          I developed a small hole in my Phill's hose, just on the compressor side of the breakaway. You can hear and smell gas escaping. I called FuelMaker, and their

              I hope you have a methane / natural gas detector in your garage? Everyone should have one of these anyway in case the vehicle fuel system develops a leak (the
