Hi. My '72 Super Beetle fuel hose developed a leak. It's under the fuel tank - a fabric hose, about 6-8" long. All the fuel leaked out, but there were no other problems, thankfully. I see that the hose needs to be replaced, but I could only get one end off - the end leading to the engine. The end attached to the fuel tank doesn't seem to come off. Can this fuel hose be replaced, or is it part of the gas tank? If I can replace the fuel hose, where can I order it? Thanks.

I replaced mine on my 74 super a while back.  I got the OG cloth covered hose from my local vw parts guy.  Pretty cheap, but any fuel hose that size should work.  Just take a piece with you if you get some generic hose so you get the right size.  You might have to lift the tank to get it off that end.  I did.  I also had to use my pocket knive to cut the old hose off.  Hope some of this helps.
