Subject: Fuel Lines and Fire Risk Tue Jun 01, 2021 2:03 pm
Some of you may have seen in the news or on social media, that a ‘classic VW camper’ (pics I saw looked like a T2) caught fire spectacularly on the A361 near Tiverton at the weekend. I understand that no one was hurt, but sadly the bus didn’t make it.
Naturally the VW groups have gone into overdrive speculating as to the cause, and one of the suspects was rotted fuel lines. Which got me thinking, how much of a risk is this for the Brazilian T2? Would a problem be picked up on a regular service or MoT and is there anything I should be checking/maintaining and what would I look for?
I don't think that it's something that would be picked up on a regular service or MOT, unless the garage could smell petrol. If you are worried, it might be worth getting it checked, especially if you smell petrol.
