That MS250 is mine and I use it to limb and prune with. I've not had any trouble with it since Kevin fixed it a couple years ago.  I have not looked into the tank to notice how long the line is inside the tank? But Tygon will not stretch like the original line.

The line shown is way too long.

I dont remember how long I left the line coming out of the tank.  Made for easy pics to show folks though.

The whole purpose was to show how you could run 1 line and bypass stihl oem line. Then use different filters on the end too, there again bypass stihl filters.  Longer line was a easy way to show this.  ::)

As the MS250 runs well, I'm not about to look in its mouth. We may never know?

The OEM fuel lines are notorious from cracking.

Stihl 390 I did today after the new  aftermarket fuel line kept kinking.

Use the old tank grommet from the oem line and a husky style fuel filter on the tygon.

Pretty slick.  I will have to log that one in for some future repair on Stihls.   I think I own 3 now.

Never paid attention. I just find which line from my bulk line that fits carb inlet and goes through grommet.
