fuel filler pipe alternatives???

if someone has done this, or thinks it's possible, can you suggest what diameter hose to use? thanks for the help.

i should also add - i did a search but found nothing regarding alternatives to the pipe. and if i do need to replace it with the oem pipe, are there any other parts i should order that are prone to damage or breakage while replacing the pipe? thanks again.
yeah there is some kind of tubing/hosing you can use, not sure if you want to use rubber hose tho because gas and oil have a tendancy to eat it away after a while... just took a gas tank off my uncles old 78 ford, and the vent and fuel filler lines looked like they were just heater hose. not sure what the hose out of your car is made out of, but it sounds like it might be metal/plastic? I'd just go measure the diameter, get the same diameter heater hose or something and clamp it on. another thing that works great is that silicon rtv gasketmaker stuff, slap some of that all around where you are leaking and tape it up or cut up an old innertube or something and wrap it around it and clamp it on with some hose clamps.... usually you only need the gasketmaker, but you do that and it will last a little bit longer ;-)
