Cool Fuel line on 240D

Just replaced the flexible fuel line that connects at bottom of tank to metal line. Last time I had to do it was back around 1993 when they changed the diesel mix in CA. At that time dealer wanted $25 for new line and had them back ordered. The MB part had a metal fitting that plugged into the tank and slipped over the metal line at the other end. For about $5 I got a new fitting for the tank that allowed me to use a plain piece of flexible line and slip fit it at both ends. This time the repair cost me a buck for 12 inches of new flexible line. Also allowed a quicker fix so less fuel got dumped.
