If anyone has an extra one or knows an one that will work let me know. The rubber ring for the fuel tank is tearing and needs to be replaced.
If you have one give me a shout thanks!

Could you measure the diameter of the stopper and the diameter of the hole on the tank? This part looks very similar to the Synergy I could send you one

Tank opening is 13mm and the inner diameter of the rubber is 10mm

No the one you sent me one from another brand would not work.

Not sure if the one sent me was new or used but it tore in the same manner as the stock one. The inner diameter is to small

Are you using some sort of lube on the tank stopper? Or it it tearing installing it into the tank itself?

I install like always will a little lube, the one you sent seemed stiffer than the original. It's a bit brittle it tore when I flexed it to insert one side of the rubber into the tank. I have felt with these before with no issue. I had taken the stock in and out a couple times to replace clunk line from getting old without issue.

Sorry I couldn't help, good luck finding something to work. Perhaps try an auto parts store. They have many rubber grommets that could work.

thanks for the help, worse case I open the hole and use a standard dubro tank stop.
