    please, please post if you find out. I took out my fuel filler hose when replacing all the rubber in the rear. Unfortunately, NAPA, Advance, Checker don't have anything close. I can't find it in classic or lmc either.

    I had a very hard time finding one as well. Seems to me I ended up using a piece of special radiator hose or something like that. I can't remember what kind, the manager of the local machine shop recomended it. No problems yet and it's been 2 plus years.

    Silicone hose will work. Most heavy truck part's house's have silicone hose, and it is'nt real expensive, but it's fuel, and oil resistant.

    Call up North West Metal Products - they would probably sell you a length of it - they make custom fuel tanks, and a length of new hose came with the tank I bought from them...

    Here is their website:

    http://www.nwmp.com/ They are pretty helpful people - and would probably gladly send you a piece for nothing (or next to nothing...)

    IGOR: Thanks for the info. I called them and spoke with Wes. I don't know if I have one of their tanks or not, but it does have a 1-1/4" barb just like they use. The problem is the standard downspout on 72 Blazers is 1-3/8". WTF?
