Sorry about not replying. I was waiting for Nooby to chime in as the master mechanic of the group. There is no cheap solution aside from patching the refuel port, and still have to replace the hose later. I did a patch using fiberglass shroud and resin, but after awhile (2 years), the detergent and heat caused the bond to come off, and the same issue again. Cheapest is to replace the hose, if it's cracked, with a bit of time to access the hose. Make sure the seal between the hose, gas tank, and gas cap housing is nice and sealed during installation.
When life offers you a blessed world to explorer, why stay home and see the adventures through others' eyes.
