Re: REFLECTOR: Fuel Sight Gauges

The sight gauge being glass could cause other problems.  Isn't there any
flexing that might occur that could cause tension in a glass tube?  I would
think that a plastic hose is easier to tighten and make leak proof.  With
glass, this would make it a little more difficult.  I don't think that a
hose clamp will work well on a glass tube.
