Ha ha I've had trouble with those too. Just needs a foot rested on it out at sea and a minute later the engine stops and panic sets in.

Any make tank you fancy will do.

If connector comes off very easily from male connector, the clip on the female connector is not clipping and holding right onto the male connector. Push it fully in, wiggle it a bit, if it's needed push clip firm down with finger till locks onto male connector. Same issue applies for any other brand fuel line, if any connector is not inserted an locked as it should, will inevitably fall off.

Happy Boating

Loco the Suzuki tank end connections even when properly clipped/snapped on will disconnect easily in error as the spring to pull the collar back is quite light.

Personally mine are pretty good genuine Suzuki however there are some non brand on the market which are rubbish. They do suffer from sticking on the ball bearings which prevents a good lock

Yep mine was OE Suzuki but you know what I mean Jeff re pulling the collar back to release the tank end. The spring in the collar was so light the briefest touch from someone brushing their foot over the tank was enough to dislodge. I'm assuming Cumbria is finding the same.

Yep see what you mean a quick fix could be a lanyard tied to prevent it pulling off I guess. Or with my big tank it has the option of a straight bayonet with a clip round to make perminant

Is the tank end connector strictly necessary? My aux tank has a permanently attached hose and just a connector for the engine.

EDIT--- thinking about it I could see that if your hose was fixed in some way to the boat you'd want to be able to disconnect from the tank to take it out to fill.

How nice ate I, lent boat to m8 had it out at weekend and managed to get the hose off the tank and water in engine.

Seems to have cleared it as he's a engineer but says looses power at top end and sounds like it's going to stall.

Omg lesson learned don't lend m8s your boat..


Ps off to buy a new tank yam or silver or the like with better connections..

Pps any ideas why engine dropping reves at top end... 15hp Suzuki efi
