How To ... Poulan Chainsaw - Replace Fuel Lines

What do you think about this video?

Bruce Thompson: Go to your local airport and get 100 octane avgas. No more ethanol problems and the 100LL doesn't break down like the swamp water they're selling as gas theses days. 100LL can set in your tank for 5 years and it is still good. All your small engines will start and run like a dream.

Brian Eastman: You should use ethonal free gas you buy at a local Home Depot or your local Sears Hardware store,It comes in a 40:1 or 50:1 it says True Advantage True Fuel.

Roly Fisher: LOL, same problem on my 3300.  The line to the fuel tank is the easy one.  The one from the carb to the crank is...a little harder!  I actually did it with very long needle nose pliers and surgical forceps, like arthroscopic surgery.  Re-used the old spring type hose clamps.  I hate buying at my local parts dealer, they treat me like crap every time I go in, even when I go in with part numbers.  It's like I'm taking milk out of their baby's mouth.

Jamie C: I'm about to have to do this on my newly acquired "used" Poulan Pro blower. Thanks for the walk through.

Bob Breisch: Appreciate your video.  My fuel line looked just like yours, - bits and pieces of crunchy plastic!  Thanks for giving me confidence to do this myself.  Repair quotes were higher than new chainsaw prices!

Gary Ronan: Consider yourself lucky. Minnesota is going to A 15% alcohol blend in there gas which will destroy all small engines in A very short time. I live close to the Wisconsin border so I will go and get my gas there. I may decide to move there!

Daniel Miller: if line line will not go into the fuel tank hole drill it a little larger , then seal it with seal all or locktite

🎃Walking Dead💃: Using that damn Ethanol gasoline DESTROYS fuel lines!We can thank the liberal tree huggers for that!

BaronvonBrawn Wright: The Key is always in the right tools... Long Hemostats allow for you to find the line and access the through hole.

railbuggy: The lousy engineers at Poulan located the fuel line holes in my 2150 where you can't get at them through the fuel cap hole.  I'd like to punch the dummy in the nose that designed it!

Rusty Johnston: I have the first Poulan I ever bought.  It still runs like a BEAST!  A little TLC is required for all equipment.  I even got an old 2075 that my mom gave me when my stepdad passed.  I use it more than my brand new 4218.  Fuel lines issues are a by product of Ethanol being used as a substitute for REAL gasoline.  I have a $20k outboard engine that I have had to change all the fuel lines more than once.  Does that make my outboard junk?  Not hardly.  F'n EPA is what you should be b!tching about.

HC Deer Hunter: First mistake is that you bought a Poulan...

Troy Brownrigg: Poulan chain saws seem to be junk! Fuel lines rot off within a year. I started a new one up today it died withing three hours of constant use! I need a real chain saw that lasts!

name is none sorry: i cannot get the fuel filter line back into that small hole help!

Whitney Dodson: I cracked my unit open because I needed to replace the primer bulb - same problem happened with the broken fuel line. I replaced the fuel lines but for some reason (and I can't see why), the saw is leaking fuel. I'm not sure why. Any suggestions about where to go next?

Larry McCraw: Mint Hill NC near Charlotte?

minthillbilly: They make several different size hoses. Check by your local hardware store or lawncare service center

Randy Eubank: my hose woint go in the tank

minthillbilly: I asked a guy that worked on small engines for a living that same question. His reply was that todays fuels have so much alcohol in them that they slowly destroy the fuel lines. Some fuels today can have as much as 10% alcohol. Have a great day!

Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
