#2 It SPLIT and leaked nearly 75 gallons of fuel into the bilge.

#3 The boat still smells to this day......

#4 Please try to use sound best practices when installing below deck fuel systems..

Curious, as to what caused the split in the primer bulb?, abrasion ? , diesel fuel, and rubber de-lamination? Or what?
