      The easiest way to repair nylon fuel lines. Barbed fittings require heat or special flare tools and that isn't always possible due to lack of space when repairing on-vehicle.

      Also used this on a SAAB, replacing a Dorman bayonet-type connector that started to leak. The repair was quick and didn't require any heat (a good thing when replacing a fuel line in a car.)We'll see how it works long-term.

      the nylon fuel lines are a pain when they get old and brittle, these let you mend them into the repair kits and make your own repairs.

      Perfect fix for repairing OEM lines. My Chevy steel lines are all rusted up and you cant remove the plastic quick connectorsso cut them back and splice in new nylon lines using these fittings and the steel to nylon compression fittings.

      These work simply enough but when using the Doman 800 nylon fuel line with these I had to use a hair dryer to force the hose over the nipple. I found the whole subject of installing a patch of hose length in an existing system to be very frustrating... go figure, looks simple enough, it isn't with these Dorman products.

      Works great with no leaks, but the one flaw lies in the white plastic retainer clips. They can be very difficult to remove without breaking once they have been installed. The original retainer clips I removed that worked with my old line didn't mate with these plugs, but they were a much better design, and were easy to remove.

      It certainly did the job, no leaks! However, the picture is inaccurate, that or I didn't receive the long spring in the picture as of 8/21/14. I was hoping to get that to help me bend the pipe, as I didn't feel like purchasing the pipe bender for 1 job... I managed to do the job with other tools, but it's disappointing when the picture doesn't match the product...

      Awesome! works as described and I had no issue with this product. I had to remake a fuel line for a 1996 GMC jimmy and this was a better and cheaper alternative to the metal lines that rusted away.

      The -121 is for 3/8" fuel line. No leak problems. Make sure you use high pressure line and clamps if using on a fuel injected vehicle.

      We have a 99 buick lesabre that the fuel line rusted through right by the fuel filter. I bought this repair line at a local parts store for $15 because I needed it the same day. Had to buy a new fuel filter that this line screws right into. Then you cut the fuel line at a non rusted part. Cut the repair line the size I needed to connect and the brass union connected the two lines. Awesome and easy!!!

      Bought this because I was doing a fuel line swap on my 2005 STi which does not have QD fuel fittings. I used a newer fuel rail from a newer WRX which does have QD fuel fittings. This connector mated right up to the QD line without problems.

      Less than half the price of a single one for 2. Dorman customer service is amazing as well. Had to call them for an application question and he was very informative.

      This item (and the matching return fitting) is exactly what I needed to re-route the fuel lines for my engine swap. But, be aware some sites list this as 3/8", not 5/16". Even the package I received was printed 3/8", but the barbed section is 5/16". It seem s most listings are corrected now, and I adapted my fitting to work fine, though I would have preferred 3/8" as intended.

      This is a good alternative to the complete line assemblies that are sold in the local parts store. One word of caution; there are some applications that will require you to shave the face of the fitting to clear the filter wall, however you should still be able to form a good seal. Once again Dorman (And AutoPartsWAY!) to the rescue!

      Instructions say to place line in hot water to soften then insert brass connector. Does not work that easily. I even heated the water in the microwave and had trouble keeping the cool part of the line from bending while making the insertion. I ended up using the quick connector end and the brass insert and converting the line to high pressure neoprene fuel line.

      Decided I wanted to replace my in-line fuel filter on my 03 impala. After debunking several people who said my car didn't have one, I located it under the driver side rear, near the tire. It had never been replaced in the life of the vehicle. The fuel filter uses a plastic connection on the fuel tank side which is easy peasy to remove. On the other side is a metal nut that was entirely rusted out. I decided to replace the filter and a small section of line. This kit provides the new compression fittings (to connect to the cut line) and the other end screws into your (separately purchased) new filter. I cut the fuel line with a small inexpensive pipe cutter and my local auto parts store let me use their handheld pipe bender to give it the bend it needed to snug back under the car. No noticeable difference while driving but I'm glad I changed it. Has been on there a month with no leaks.

      I couldn't find the size, but it found it at doormans website. it is 14mm x 5/16In. It worked great on my Land Rover LR3, which is very Ford (and also Jaguar) underneath the hood.

      I looked everywhere for these connectors to repair a nylon fuel hose on a Saab. All out suppliers said couple weeks, or they weren't sure. Looked on AutoPartsWAY and got it next day, worked like a charm.

      It's better to fabricate a hose with a "quick disconnect" feature in case you have to disconnect and reconnect items from a system quickly.

      I bought these to replace the broken fuel fitting on the Harley, The stock fuel line with fitting was expensive so I went this route.Anyone that works on HD should have these in the tool box, the fitting is easily broken removing the gas tank.

      This little part saved my wallet. I was searching and searching for this part for over a month. The dealership wanted to replace the entire fuel line which would have been $800 or more. The local auto parts stores wanted $20 for the same part. To say the least, I bought this part snapped it on and my durango runs like a champ.

      There is a small fuel hose that connects the fuel damper to the main lines and in turn the fuel rail on the '99 Miata. The previous owner simply cut off the plastic line and put on a short length of fuel hose. Mistake one, never use regular fuel hose on a fuel injection system, it isn't rated for the pressure, it seeped and I was always worried that one day it'd leak fuel and catch on fire. Mistake two is that you cannot simply use a section of fuel injection hose on these GM quick-connect style barbed fuel fittings; they're designed for the tubing that you have to heat shrink on. I tried sourcing new connectors through Dorman and tubing but it was going to be too expensive even if it was one of the repair kits which had way too much tubing for the short 6" section I needed to replace.Next best thing was to get two of these 5/16 connectors and a short section of Fuel Injection rated hose from the local parts store. I was lucky enough that the parts guy had a section...

      I put this on my GM 3800 after I got tired of smelling gas in the car. The part woked great but the insturctions were a little weak:1) you have to completely remove the lower plastic sleeve on the fuel rail2) measure and cut the old line off before the S-curve so the splice is in a straight line2) it is best to soak this part in boinling water and insert the metal coupling while in your house3) then take the hot water outside and slowly pour it over the end you just cut off4) quickly insert the other end of the metal coupling to the old line (especially in January)5) just to be sure, put a couple small cable ties on the spliceThe new coupling then simply snaps on the fuel rail. Done. Now I dont' get dizzy while driving and my fuel mileage has increased.

      Great part for the price (plus you get two connectors), but could not use it. I went and found one on a similar vehicle for free. You would need to wiggle you old one out, but the new one will seal great if you can the old one out.

      Don't really know what to say except it fit and doesn't leak. I guess you cannot ask for much more than that.
