Default Replacement Gas Deck Fill... Help...

Does anyone know where I can get this piece to fit a 2" in hose? The Powdercoat shop destroyed my original one; and all I can find are red gas fitting for 1.5" hose. I really want to replace it with this exact fitting, because I have a blue water fitting to match already; and I don't want to drill any more holes, i.e. with a different flange. Boater's World and West Marine sell this, but only for a 1.5" hose. Please help, and thanks.

I was going to suggest West Marine. Maybe, look at their fitting and see who makes it. Then do a search for that company.

Talking Fill for fuel.

Hi Brian,
Through some investigating I found out that the fill you have is not made in 2". It seems as though Sonic used to press a cylindrical sleeve over top of the 1 1/2" fill to get it to 2". If you look at yours real close, you should notice that the sleave was cut and ground on to get it to fit. So, see if you can get that sleeve off of there and use a good epoxy or other compound and press the old sleeve or a new sleeve onto a new 1 1/2" fill. This seems to be the only way to go unless you change the style of the rest like we talked about. See ya !

Keep in mind that the Ocean City Powerboat races are cancelled until the middle of September sometime.
