What I do to my MK7 today?

When closing the Hood today the arm must of hit the QD fitting attached to the Ethanol sensor causing the line to blow and dump fuel everywhere!!

The street was full of fuel I had to push my car to side.

Crazy thing I was doing runs that night, this happened on the way home on the side streets doing 40mph or less, reaching a stop sign, it just shut down.

A real video of me, when I popped the hood and saw E85 all over the place.


That sucks. Just curious though, why did you use a QD for a fuel line?

I had ordered the upgraded fuel lines from Precision Raceworks, they come QD. Then I ordered the additional line for ethanol into MPI just to keep everything the same.

Gotcha. Didn't realize that kit came with QD's on the fuel lines.

Dammit I'm in... where was this done? I'm willing to put my car on jack stands and send out all my calipers for something that looks like that. Maybe not that color since my car is TR. But I'm itching to switch my black wheels to bronze and I don't think my currently yellow calipers are going to look good under bronze wheels.

These are going behind bronze wheels (pic is before powdercoat calipers)
