Cracked filler neck - rubber repair


Recommended Posts

My late style rubber filler pipe (between gas cap and tank) is starting to crack and causes fumes to fill the car when there is less than half a tank of gas.

Is there a quick fix, some fuel friendly sealant I can smear on the rubber to get a few more months out of it?

A new one is $90, I swear they were $35 a month or so back.

I used black rubber silicone (squeeze tube) applied to cracks from outside and then sprayed with black plastidip. Alternatively, you can dip the neck into the plastidip (or whatever is called) solution, let dry and you are done. It won't be a beauty queen but works. You can also spray with Herculiner or similar undercoating. I have one refurbished available for $15.00 if you like. Or, post at WTB section, somebody might have a new one at a good price.

I purchased one of those rubber filler necks from Maximillion Importing Co. for usd$97.50 I installed it on my 76 2002, it's a project vehicle that just sites around most of the time. I have drivin it about 60 miles in 1 year and it is already showing signs of cracking my guess is that the gas in California has some type of chemical in it that carrodes BMW rubber. I will not purchase another one. not at the Current prices. I will modify the gas tank. because im going to send it out to be cleaned in acid bath. Any pictures or recomendation would be good.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
