I don't know why I forget to pay attention to things I would normally be very careful about with my Impreza (probably because the Impreza is on the only running car at the moment) but there are three small fuel lines running off the passenger side of the fuel tank near the filler tube on my 1985 Brat that I removed when I pulled the old tank out to put the heavily undercoated new rust-free tank in. Problem is, I forgot to pay attention to where each line went. Go me. At any rate, one of the three lines is smaller than the other two making it a no-brainer, but the other two lines are identical in size. What I'm talking about:

Tank Side Of The Lines

Does anyone know which line in the "tank" photo is #1 and which is #2? The parts exploded diagram doesn't make it clear at all, and the techs at the dealership can't remember (granted, only two of them have ever worked on a Subaru this old). Any help would be most gratefully appreciated!

I'll take a look/see under both of mine, after work today (3pm). Try to do a pic of them too.

Don't all three go to that evaporator tank hidden just above where the lines are mounted?

On my Hatch I believe all went into the evaporator/collector tank then back to the actual fuel tank? So two of them went from the fuel tank back to the evaporator tank and one came from the charcoal canister tank under the hood to the evaporator tank. :confused:

Good Luck,

I dunno :). I have three metal lines about 5" away from three metal nipples on the gas tank... I know I removed them from there (I have the old bits of hose still) but I don't know where each one goes is the problem.

Going by your pics, and looking up at lines, they go as follows;

#1. small line = no problemo

#2. runs with small line to top of tank, where larger line is

#3. it runs to the line that goes around to the frontside of tank
