I have a 2009 VS and in these 11 years I’ve had to replace the gas tank float three times. The little plastic part that insulates the electrical contact deteriorates, falls apart and then let’s gas come out of the gas tank into the the boot
I tried to epoxying it the last time, which held for a short while, but then the gas just seeped out under the epoxy.
Back in the VW days, I never had this problem. I also think that little plastic part used to be a ceramic part?
Does anyone know where I can get a high-quality replacement float? This one is made in India. Also, does anyone know what is the proper float that I should get?
Any other thoughts would be appreciated!
P.S. I like to burn candles inside the car while I‘m driving at night. Do you think with this strong gas smell I should stop doing that? (smile)
