. . . One little trick I learnt from my father years ago when working on fuel lines has stuck with me and often proves useful. When working on the fuel system, I fill the tank with petrol ( gas to you lot ! ) and when I home with the car in the garage, remove the filler cap and cover the tank neck with a thick plastic and then replace the cap. This will prevent air re-entereing the tank and eventually ( hopefully ! ) the dribbles will stop. I agree with the comments on the hoses, always worth a second glance when working with the bonnet ( hood to you lot ! ) up. I replace mine with Aeroquip lines where possible and new ones from the local hydraulic shoppe ! Good luck . . .
