Another GTS gone

A good friend of mine shared some very sad news. His TT '99 had a fuel line issue not far from home and the car is toasted.

We think it is probable that the rubber liner of his AN hoses may have deteriorated from Ethanol in the fuel. Almost had it put out twice with small fire extinguishers, only to erupt again before the FD showed up. Note the key position - it may have kept pumping fuel despite the engine being dead.

Brake and fuel lines are places where the teflon liner is worth every penny despite all the aggravation of those brass ferrules with Earl's or Aeroquip DIY components.

Good thing the Valve cover did not get going more.. They are magnesium and very hard to put out. I purchased a TT years ago that had the same thing but worse because of the valve cover. I am always buying if he wants to sell for more than buyback but unfortunately thinking it will be a parts car.

Absolutely correct on the valve cover. IIRC, the lion's share of the firewall structure on the Gen 3 cars is magnesium. If it gets going and water hits it, it will be a wall of fire!
