    The one I purchased was actually from Malcolm. Was a few years ago now - maybe a duff batch?

    Where did you get it from Oli ? I got my last one from Bob and albeit a bit big and more rigid , the last few have been fine.All made in UK I think

    The newer ones don't seem to last very long though. I went back to a good used original one after the new one cracked very badly after not very long.

    Yip 2" or there abouts and a 45 deg bend all that is needed. Did not find any that cheap though

    https://www.txautosport.co.uk/produc...CABEgIHu_D_BwE would these work John? 51 mm 45 deg. Not had a standard filler on my imp for 20 odd years and never replaced one for anyone on a standard car.

    My bad, I claimed Bobs last one for DDG

    Did Bob give a lead time for more as I think they are all made in the UK. I am not sure they are actually made for the Imp exclusively as I had to cut a fair chunk off the end to make it fit.

    Malcolm has them listed and also slightly cheaper than Bob

    You can buy the filler hose size off the shelf, but most start more expensive 51mm with 45 deg bend £20 plus

    Sorry to say but Malc would be your best bet

    Anyone know a supplier for the hose from the filler to the tank ? Mine is cracked. Club spares don’t have any.
