Well, it was time for my first fill-up of the season, and I smelled gas.
It seems my 1-1/2" filler hose developed a small crack in it and was seeping gas.

Not my pic, but I saw something similar when I got under the car.
It's a tight squeeze to work in when you aren't dropping the tank.

I wanted to fix this fast and only needed the larger hose (not the Fiero Store 2-hose part)
You need to buy 1-1/2" ID fuel filler hose elbow (cut to fit) that you can buy anywhere.
I had my car fixed the same day.

Excellent idea to replace the 30+ yr old fuel filler hose. We have read reports of fires caused by this hose leaking.
