Major fire averted 🔥 Whilst getting the jack out from under the bonnet the other day I happened to notice the fuel hose looking a bit odd ..... on closer inspection I found it was cracked to buggery along its full length. Seems the heat from the exhaust side of the engine has well and truly baked it over the years. Could have been interesting had the hose perforated with fine fuel mist spraying over the hot manifold. Have now fitted a new longer pipe so I can route it a bit further away from hazards. Think I'll have to keep closer watch in the future. Prevention is better than cure.
