Ok so I bought a Attwood 6 gallon gas tank for my motor on my boat. I paid $50 for that at Wal-Mart. I also needed the fuel assembly (line, primer bulb, etc.) which they wanted another $50 for. I said screw that and decided to make my own. I got some of the parts tonight to start it. Gonna order the primer bulb online off of Amazon for like $7.00 and I already bought the fittings at Wal-Mart which were only like $13. For the hose I'm gonna buy a gravel vacume from the fish section at Wal-Mart and just use the hose off of that. That's $9. So I will pretty much have the whole assembly for half the cost. Why not save some money and build it yourself. I also am using hose clamps but I already have some laying around. If you don't they are only couple cents at the hardware store.

Good deal. Post up some pictures when you get it done.

Somethings are better to just buy the correct way.

Gasoline will eat the inside of some lines, and the pieces that break away will continue on into your carb which in return will cost you more money and also the downtime or stranded. While i admire you trying to build it yourself i still suggest getting the correct parts.

I would skip the fish tank plastic tubing.

Go to a Automotive parts store and ask them for X amount of feet of gas line, they have it behind the counter and its cheaper than 9$ im betting. Also it will be the correct material for gas.

Probably not a bad idea with the gas line. I used some plastic tubing for an overflow on my 4wheeler and it is eaten up pretty good.
