Hi
I am after a filler hose - goes from filler to tank
the filler end is round  but the tank end is oval
and the hose is very hard so it cannot be bent etc...  maybe a one year only thing???
I have see hoses with round ends both end...
maybe later models...

Well
I found one in the same condition as Mine locally...
so, I am going to cut the bad end off mine...
and the bad end off the spare one and then cut another piece off the spare and join it with a piece of pipe from a super beetle filler pipe..

cheers

The supers had a long metal gas filler pipe, whereas Mine has
a long hose formed to a special shape and length etc.. so the long specially shaped hose is not needed.  these hoses seperate between the inner and outer layers.. over 40 years... :lol
